Until recently the thought of vinyl flooring could instantly transport you back to your childhood, standing in your grandmother’s kitchen with thoughts of linoleum dancing in your head. Contrary to this fading memory is a hot new product we are seeing more and more called Luxury Vinyl Tile.
Known as LVT in the industry this severely cool, flexible and budget friendly flooring has become the fastest growing product in its market segment. While imitating hardwood floors, natural stone and ceramic tile, this product is extremely durable; ideal for a high traffic area like bathrooms, kitchens, and even restaurants.
Available in a variety of ranges from modern to rustic, the embossing and graining on LVT are extremely realistic with 3D effects. These tiles can also be grouted to look like real stone or ceramic tiles for added effect. ‘Slate’ vinyl floors give a rustic modern feel in the images below, while the black and white colored chevron adds whimsy and flare to the living area of this bright home.
Hardwood floors are imitated with the true character of wood with graining, depth of color and embossed texture. The LVT hardwoods are installed in planks like real hardwoods for a natural look. Vinyl hardwoods, being water resistant, are an ideal way to have the hardwood floor appearance in your bath without the constant fear of water damage. Beautiful white washed vinyl wood floors in a bathroom are the perfect touch for a warm feel after a long relaxing bath, or a multiple color chevron for a bold fashion forward look in a small space.
