They are all part of the same flooring type. Luxury vinyl flooring
is often just referred to as LVF. As part of the many design options, this flooring can be cut into square, groutable, tile-sized pieces (LVT Flooring) or planks.
This vinyl is a remarkably realistic mimic of wood, tile, or stone. It is completely waterproof, so that makes it ideal for kitchens, baths, and other wet spaces, but it's so stylish we're seeing it installed in every room in the house. We're also seeing it installed in high-end homes where once only genuine wood or stone would be considered.
The images are taken with 3D photography so they're clear and accurate. You will see knots, grains, swirls, wormholes, and veining variations. The colors and patterns are vibrant.
Embossing adds depth and dimension. Textured appearances are also available: wire-brushed, hand scraped, weathered, and distressed. Matte, gloss, and high gloss finishes are also available.
All colors, patterns, species, and designs follow current trends. Some of the trends you can follow are whitewashed and light gray floors for the farmhouse-style kitchen; wood floors anywhere; marble bathrooms and textures. You can even combine two trends, such as the metal combined with stone for a copper-colored slate floor.
