Plank vinyl is often used as an alternative to hardwood. Vinyl planks can be printed with photorealistic hardwood imaging, allowing it to expertly mimic the appearance of hardwood. The plank shape further increases the similarities in appearance.
Vinyl tiles are the perfect choice for vinyl that mimics the appearance of natural stone. Use vinyl tile to achieve the luxury look of marble, slate, travertine, and more, at a fraction of the price. Vinyl tile can also be used to create intriguing patterns for your floors. Vinyl can be printed in nearly any color, which gives you the opportunity to get creative.
Sheet vinyl is an entire sheet cut to the exact dimensions of a room. Sheet vinyl offers excellent water resistance – there are no grooves, cracks, or gaps where water might seep in. This makes sheet vinyl an excellent option for bathrooms, kitchens, and mudrooms. Sheet vinyl can be printed with a variety of colors and patterns.
Luxury vinyl differs from standard vinyl in a few key ways, but is it worth the higher price tag? We think so! Luxury vinyl is thicker than regular vinyl, with a durable wear layer and detailed printed layer underneath. The thickness of luxury vinyl allows it to better mimic natural wood and stone. Luxury vinyl is often made from a limestone-vinyl mix for added strength and realistic texture. Luxury vinyl is most commonly available as planks and tile.
