Luxury vinyl (LVF)
has it all, from the high-end style to waterproof capabilities and countless other functional characteristics. Shoppers, more and more, are looking for value, and one would be hard-pressed to find something that doesn't offer more value for the decorating dollar. Read further to see why this may be for you.
Although it is considered a premium product, LVF is genuinely budget-friendly. True--to-life images of wood, stone, and tile are taken with 3D photography and have clarity and vibrancy with knots, swirls, grains, and veining variations in view. The tile-sized pieces are available in chevron, herringbone, colorful geometrics, encaustic style, and filigree patterns, all of which can be mixed and matched to create a personalized design. Stone looks are available in marble, granite, travertine, quartz, slate, limestone, and terrazzo images.
The floors also have micro beveling and embossing to add depth, dimension, and textured appearances such as wire-brushed, hand scraped, weathered, and distressed. For even more realism, the design option has the material cut into planks to mimic hardwood boards, called vinyl plank flooring, or square pieces to echo stone and tile, called LVT flooring. Some even go so far as to use grout with the tile-sized pieces.
