In the "old days," vinyl flooring was horrible. It looked like stamped plastic and the colors were all wrong. But in the last few years, there have been great advances in the technology and fabrication of both Luxury Vinyl Plank flooring (vinyl "planks" or strips that replicate wood planks) and Luxury Vinyl Tile (vinyl pieces in various sizes and shapes that replicate stone or even cement).
The LVP and LVT manufacturer Amtico just came out with a new collection called Form that offers some wonderful choices of wood-look and stone-look vinyl that people are choosing not only for commercial applications in high traffic areas like stores, restaurants, and lobbies, but also for residential applications in homes that have kids and pets, homes that need a flooring that can stand up to use and abuse.
The wood-look tiles can come in parquet or basketweave style in a myriad of wood species.
And the stone comes in a hex or paverstone configuration in 6 stone-like colorways.
And these products can combined in exciting ways. I like how the promo pictures show a parquet with a straight plank lay, and even a mix of stone and wood!
