Wood and tile looks

Right now, wood floors are trending, and that’s not expected to end for at least 15 years. Stone is always classic. You can achieve some of the looks, and this is by far not a complete list, are gray wood flooring for a farmhouse-style kitchen or light wood for California cottage-style. Weathered barn door, reclaimed or elegant, modern dark woods are also popular. Waterproof flooring can also echo tile, concrete, or stone, and one of the most popular bath looks right now is mimicking an upscale spa with marble.

What exactly is waterproof flooring?

This is engineered luxury vinyl with a technologically advanced core, either the SPC (stone plastic composite) and WPC (wood plastic composite). These cores are thicker, sturdier and won’t peel or ripple no matter how much water they’re exposed to or for how long.

True-to-life images are created with 3D photography and digital printing and are available in a wide assortment of color and patterns. Embossing adds depth, dimension, and textured appearances, such as wire-brushed, hand scraped, weathered and distressed, and they come in matte, gloss, and high-gloss finishes.

The material can be cut into planks or square, tile-sized pieces. The planks are made by cutting vinyl strips and mounting them to mimic hardwood boards, and many take the tiles even further by using grout. The floors are low maintenance, with only a daily sweep and periodic mopping required. Installation can be the fast and uncomplicated floating floor. Pieces click together to mat and hover over the subfloor with no nails or glue needed.
