If you have been shopping for new flooring, you’ve undoubtedly noticed that vinyl is back in style. You’ve probably seen sheets in a variety of cuts, tiles that can be arranged in a myriad of ways, planks that resemble wood and other smooth surfaces, and patterns that were never available to your grandparents. Advances in technology have made luxury vinyl a beautiful and affordable flooring option. For 2017, vinyl is all about texture. The experts at Floor Coverings International West Metro Atlanta outline their favorite looks below!
Natural-looking weaves are super hot and bring the outdoors inside. These sheets or squares are actually made of woven vinyl that resembles bamboo and other grasses. Look for colors ranging from cocoa brown to wheat grass, and give your floors a natural look with the ease and durability of vinyl.
Bricks and stones will make your floors gorgeous. Not real bricks and stones, which would be quite expensive, but easy-care vinyl made from PVC. Vinyl flooring with the texture of carefully laid bricks will have your guests asking, “What is this floor?” Choose a stone texture for your bathroom for a unique look that will truly transform the room. Stone textures are available in solid or mixed tones, and open up a whole new world when it comes to decorating. Try a red brick vinyl in the entryway and you’ll wish you’d done it sooner. Try a three-dimensional, chiseled gray brick-textured vinyl on a three-season porch or even in the kitchen.
Wood-look textured vinyl is already a favorite for home and room remodelers. You can find this handsome flooring with simulated tree rings, wood-grain texture, and other accents that resemble and feel like real wood. Imagine vinyl flooring that appears to be golden oak, but is super easy to care for and will hold up extremely well to everyday wear and tear.
Additives can give your floor a textured vinyl look that uniquely matches your personal style. Look for vinyl with colored chips added to provide dimension or optical illusion. You can get them in just about any color. Styles include chips that react to black light, chips that glow in the dark, mirrored chips, and pure metal flakes in a variety of silvers, golds, and other colors. Try a vinyl with a light dusting of sparkly, mirrored additives in the master bath. Guests will be impressed by the luxurious look and you’ll be happy with the durable functionality.
Remember, luxury vinyl is new again and it’s all about texture. A new textured vinyl floor can revamp an old space into something fresh and unique. There are so many new designs available that it might be tough to choose one. But don’t let that stop you!
