Luxury vinyl flooring: deciding between stone and wood-looks

Luxury vinyl flooring: deciding between stone and wood-looks

Going with luxury vinyl plank or tile can be a big decision. They're both visually appealing and come with countless benefits, including 100% waterproof capability. Your style will ultimately be the deciding factor.

Wood looks, warmth, and charm

This material is no slouch when it comes to natural wood look visuals! To add to the realism, it's also cut into long planks to mimic hardwood boards.

The main appeal of any wood, or a wood look, is texture. This gives the floors their distinctive charm. You can get them all with LVP; that includes wire-brushed, hand-scraped, or distressed.

Color and grain pattern is also a significant factor. There are hundreds of images from which to choose, so you'll have your pick!

A word about embossed-in-register

This deserves special mention because it might be the most realistic yet. Here, embossing creates indentions that exactly match those of the image.

Stone cold luxury

Stone is often used with the square, tile-sized pieces called luxury vinyl tile. Many say the extra seams add to the realism.

The main appeal of stone is the often contrasting colors and veining variations. It’s not unusual for some stones like slate or limestone to have different colors in their background.

Marble is known for its distinctive veining. Those colors can range from red, blue, and black to gray, pastel pink, etc.

Advantages of luxury vinyl

Whether you choose LVT or LVP, you'll have an affordable, stylish surface that is completely waterproof, durable, and low maintenance.
