Luxury vinyl flooring styles

Luxury vinyl plank flooring is a synthetic material that imitates hardwood flooring. Similarly, luxury vinyl tile mimics ceramic and stone as well as wood floor coverings. Whether you prefer LVP or LVT, you can benefit from the versatility of this install-it-anywhere flooring. Luxury vinyl is a perfect material for any home, even very active, pet-friendly households. In Dane County, Wisconsin, Bisbee's Flooring Center has the plank or tile style that will enhance room decor in your home.
Wood-look planks are available in many domestic and exotic wood species. However, not all LVP has a 'brand new look. Distressed, handscraped, and wire brushed brands are trendy. Texturing adds an authentic touch. While standard texturing is done randomly, top-of-the-line Embossed in Register planks shows off texturing matching the wood grain pattern.
Marble, slate, and travertine are natural stone floor materials with a luxury vinyl counterpart. Clay-based ceramic tile provides a good 'model' for LVT, too. If multi-layer LVT and LVP have a wood plastic composite (WPC) core layer, the tile or plank is waterproof. WPC flooring will not peel or warp when it is exposed to moisture.
Each luxury vinyl product is designed to be installed using one of three methods. Most homeowners choose glue-down and floating floor brands. Floating floor planks and tiles interlock at the edges, and thus, the floor needs no attachment to the subfloor. Loose-lay luxury vinyl is a less permanent flooring solution. Loose-lay flooring butts together.
