Vinyl plank is a form of luxury vinyl flooring. The material is cut into long planks, usually to mimic hardwood floorboards.
The other form is when the material is cut into square, tile-sized pieces. It’s called luxury vinyl tile or LVT flooring. Read more about the great looks you can get with vinyl plank flooring.
Unique arrangements and layouts
Planks can be cut into any size. You could create patterns, such as herringbone, diagonal, random width, grids, staggers, weaves, etc. In short, anything you'd do with genuine wood.
Shake it up!
Mix and match planks of different colors, patterns, textures, and species. A great look is the herringbone layout with two or three alternating colors.
Vinyl plank, called LVP flooring, can be used as borders or decorative accents.
Not just for wood looks!
You're not limited as to how you use a form. For example, while mainly associated with wood looks, many prefer vinyl plank for stone or ceramic tile echoes.
The larger format, and fewer seams, are reminiscent of a stone slab, say some. Others like a plank as a large format tile, a look that's currently trending.
High style, with a low price tag
Images of wood, stone, and tile are taken digitally. They're straightforward and vibrant with textured looks, knots, raised grains, depth, and dimension.
Whether you choose vinyl plank flooring or LVT, you'll be assured of incredible realism. There's also a wide variety of colors and styles suitable for any decor.
Other luxury vinyl flooring benefits include:
1.Extreme durability with a robust, transparent wear sheet protects the floor from scratches, scuffs, and dents.
2.Waterproof. Luxury vinyl flooring can be submerged or spilled on without damage.
3.Low maintenance. Only regular sweeping and periodic mopping are required.
4.Uncomplicated installation. The pieces can be glued or installed to float; with the latter, pieces click, mat, and hover over the subfloor without adhesives or staples.
