Luxury vinyl flooring (LVF) couldn’t be hotter this year. The economy has long been a driver, and, today, more than ever, people are looking for aesthetics, value, and longevity. LVF truly checks all the boxes, including high-end designs inspired by nature, durability, ease of care, simple installation, and endurance. As a result, It has become one of the most sought-after products with a popularity that's expected to continue for a long time.
Wood and wood looks: one of the biggest trends in home decor
LVF is sometimes referred to as vinyl plank (LVP) or LVT flooring; LVP means the vinyl is cut into planks and mounted on boards to echo hardwood can’t be emphasized enough that it follows the trends. For wood in 2021, that means both light and dark woods in cooler shades without the warmer yellow, red, and pink tones. Textures are done by machine for LVF, and they include wire-brushed, hand scraped, weathered, and distressed looks.
Look for gray, blond, whitewashed, and the darkest dark hues. Design experts think light shades' resurgence might be due to another trend, minimalism in Scandinavian and Japanese atmospheres. Light tones are also said to change the face of interior design because they coordinate so easily and work with almost anything.
Dark wood will never go out of style. People love the sophistication, dramatic looks, and the ability to create bold contrasting color designs. The difference this year is that these floors are getting even darker, such as a true black.
Tile and stone look flooring
LVT flooring refers to LVF cut into square, groutable, tile-sized pieces, used to mimic stone or tile. Vivid colors, bold patterns, and textured looks (pebble, beach sand) are trending. Marble, slate, terrazzo, granite, limestone, and quartz floors are classic and will always be popular.
