Three top-trending looks in vinyl flooring

A vinyl floor, in and of itself, is a trend, especially since it offers so much value. These floors are affordable, stylish, waterproof, durable, and easy to maintain.

Thanks to modern technology, manufacturers produce amazingly realistic mimics of natural materials. Such as wood and stone!

Please read further to see some popular looks.

Wood looks with raised grains and textures

Hardwood echoes are expected to trend for at least 15 years. Popular species are oak, maple, walnut, hickory, and more.

Textures put the finishing touches on hardwood or a wood-look vinyl floor. Surfaces such as brushed, hand-scraped, and distressed are significant, as is a relatively new technology called EIR or Embossed-in-Register.

With EIR, little indentations are made with embossing; they match those of the images. Many tell us this is the most realistic yet.

Stone look vinyl

There's a strong interest in natural materials, and manufacturers have kept the pace very well. They use the same technology to create looks that echo gorgeous, timeless, and natural stone.

Check out some of the beautiful stone looks in our vinyl flooring store.

Marble, known for unique veining and translucence, is now available in a non-porous, durable, and budget-friendly material. Use it on your bathroom floor with some glass tiles on the wall.

With a marble bath floor, you've created the atmosphere of an upscale health spa. Other popular stones are slate, travertine, and limestone.

Rigid core vinyl

Constructed with the SPC (stone plastic composite) core, this is sturdy, solid, and firm. In addition, it is technologically advanced and won't peel or ripple no matter how much water there is or how long.

You'll also hear the words ``WPC flooring" when discussing a vinyl floor. This is because the wood plastic composite, like SPC, offers the highest level of moisture protection.

The difference, though, is the feeling underfoot. WPC is more flexible, like that of a resilient material.
