Luxury vinyl flooring is still as popular as ever, with trends favoring the line, as it has in years past. Right now, we’d like to point out some of the specific trends in texture for your consideration.

If you’ve never explored this flooring line before, now is a great time to start. Let’s see which trends are likely best for your home.

Texture trends in luxury vinyl flooring are significant this year


This year, all eyes are on the wood look of luxury vinyl plank flooring. This line has featured realistic wood grain appearances and finish types, and you can only expect that to increase in the coming year.

Textures you'll see most include the following:

  • Distressed – These look to be worn, with knots, burns, wormholes, and scrapes, for an older vintage look.

  • Handscraped – Floors with this texture look unique and handcrafted with ingrained scrapes.

  • Wirebrushed – Smoother than hand-scraped and distressed textures, these floors look to be intentionally scratched with what looks like exposed wood right on the surface.

  • Embossed – These floors look most like the real thing, with a textured surface that exactly matches the image layer's wood grain.

You will see trends for all types of natural stones and natural materials for luxury vinyl tile flooring. LVT flooring is sure to speak to you as well.
