The coolest thing about this years vinyl flooring trends is the realistic looks. Not that long ago realistic wood or tile effect vinyl flooring was unheard of. Now, if you’re showed some current options, you’d never guess they were vinyl.
Wood look vinyl is just as realistic as wood look laminate, but with even less maintenance and even more versatility. The days of outdated 1980s vinyl are behind us and today you can find vinyl in shockingly realistic wood looks that will convince even the most serious skeptics. Which means, with its waterproof capabilities and ease of maintenance, vinyl flooring is on the rise. And fast.
Wood look vinyl has also become increasingly popular for commercial use, due to the realistic look and the pure fact that unlike solid hardwood its not a maintenance nightmare.
Once upon a time, porcelain and ceramic tile were the only way to get a beautiful, realistic stone look. Just like wood-look vinyl, stone-look vinyl uses the same technologies to create looks mimicking gorgeous, timeless natural stone. You don’t have to pay a fortune for soft, porous marble! stone-look vinyl flooring has changed the game. For the better.
