When you hear the word vinyl, you may be thinking sheet vinyl…or maybe peel & stick tile…or maybe even VCT (vinyl composite tile) – the type you might see in a school or supermarket.
But, the latest trend in vinyl is Luxury vinyl. This is a high end durable vinyl that looks real! Luxury vinyl can be made to look like real hardwood or even tile. The designs use real digital pictures and use registered embossing for the wood grains and tile textures. They are truly amazing in how real they look and feel.
In addition to looking great, luxury vinyl is waterproof, so it’s great for heavy traffic areas and areas with water such as kitchens, bathrooms, basement, entryways. They are also super easy to clean.
With Luxury vinyl, you can also get fun and creative by adding borders and altering the direction of the planks. The pieces are all individual, include vinyl grout lines that are lower than the vinyl tiles for a more realistic effect.
They come in a variety of colors and styles -from traditional to distressed woods, as well as slate and natural stone looks. Take a look at these pictures and see how real it looks!
