Luxury vinyl, with its true-to-life images of wood, tile, or stone, follows all of the current industry trends, so there's an unlimited amount of looks you can create. You can have the gray wood floors of a farmhouse kitchen or the whitewashed wood floor of your California-cottage style living room. Create a retro-style playroom with vibrant, colorful tiles. You can also have an industrial-chic kitchen or a reddish-brown brick floor with your rustic-style. Right now, marble-looks are trending, so turn your bathroom into an atmosphere of a serene, high-end spa or create glamorous, elegant floors with granite or terrazzo.
What are the luxury vinyl flooring (LVF) trends?
Luxury vinyl flooring (LVF) is a trend itself. This popular flooring material is 100% waterproof, affordable, and durable with a high-end style that's so sophisticated we're now seeing it in some homes where once only real wood or stone would even be considered. The images are taken with 3D photography and are digitally printed, so they're clear, vibrant, and accurate. Every knot, grain, swirl, and veining variation will be shown. Embossing adds depth, dimension, and textured appearances, which are also trending in 2020. Finishes come in matte, gloss, and high gloss colors.
A great design option is that it can be cut into square, tile-sized pieces, called luxury vinyl tile flooring or planks, to mimic hardwood boards, luxury vinyl plank. The tile-sized pieces are groutable; grout is now considered an important design tool. Planks are mainly associated with hardwood, but some use them for stone looks.
What's the difference between a trend and a fad?
Trends are tried-and-true materials, substances, or events. They have been around and researched for a long time but are updated and adjusted to reflect current consumer preferences. Fads are knee-jerk reactions and fast, poorly thought-out inventions. They aren't sustainable, like the pet rock craze that we no longer hear about. This is unlike wood floors, expected to trend for at least 15 years.
