Latest flooring trends for luxury vinyl

Luxury vinyl is an adaptable, functional, and eye-catching floor covering that mingles well with any home and decorating style. Luxury vinyl plank mimics various hardwood species, and luxury vinyl tile looks like stone, ceramic, or wood. Outlook Flooring offers a large variety of both LVP and LVT. You can find our showrooms in Monroe and Gastonia, North Carolina, and Rock Hill, South Carolina. Or a flooring designer can come to your home with product samples.


Waterproof luxury vinyl is 'in,' and likely, its popularity will continue well into the future. The flooring usually has a wood-plastic composite or a stone-plastic composite core. A WPC core, which includes a foaming agent, is made of wood pulp, while limestone is the main component in an SPC core.

Wood colors

'Go light or go dark' is the current luxury vinyl flooring catchphrase. Light hardwoods like birch, oak, maple, and dark hardwoods such as mahogany and walnut are popular. Light grey stained or whitewashed hardwood is also trendy. Polished and textured finishes, like wire-brushed and hand-scraped, accentuate the beauty of the wood grain.

Tile shapes and sizes

Large-format tiles, which are more significant than the standard 12-inch x 12-inch size, are frequently chosen by homeowners. Large tiles, especially those that are light in color, create an illusion of space in a small room. Mixed-width tiles are also in vogue. This type of tile incorporates a variety of different shapes and sizes.
