Luxury vinyl flooring is durable, tough, and easy to clean, combining superior performance with sophisticated beauty. With features like these, it’s no wonder that luxury vinyl is trending with homeowners this year! There are no signs of its popularity slowing down, either — especially not when luxury vinyl has so many versatile uses.
Think a vinyl option might be right for you? Then read on to learn more about some of the hottest vinyl flooring trends for 2020, including trends in luxury vinyl tile (LVT) and luxury vinyl plank (LVP). We’ll explore eight vinyl flooring trends to give you a sense of the possibilities, including mixed-width tiles, light colors, and faux stone textures.
2020 Luxury Vinyl Tile Trends (LVT)
Trend #1: Large Format Tiles
Large tiles instantly create an illusion of space, making them perfect for smaller homes or apartments. Choose shades of white or other light hues to get the maximum effect! Since space (or at least, the appearance of space) will always be at a premium, this is one flooring trend that will never go out of style.
Trend #2: Mixed Width Tiles
Hate uniform, mass-produced looking styles? Then mixed-width tiles are the perfect trend for you. Mixed width tiles incorporate a range of different shapes and sizes, making the space feel more personal while drawing your eye around the room. Mixed width planks are also available, giving you a broader range of mixed-width options to choose from.
Trend #3: Stone-Look LVT
Stone floors have a timeless appeal, expressing elegance, class, and luxury. However, real stone can be costly, especially rare varieties that must be imported or shipped long distances. Luxury vinyl tile masterfully imitates the look of stone, without the additional cost. Not only is LVT typically more affordable than natural stone, but it’s also warmer and softer on the feet, offering superior comfort.
Trend #4: Waterproof Vinyl Tile
Maybe you live near the beach, or your kids are always in and out of the pool. Maybe you’re redoing your bathroom, where steam and moisture are constant battles. Maybe you’ve got a messy dog who loves to dribble and drool on the floor.
No matter which of these scenarios you’re facing, protect your floors and stay up-to-date with gorgeous, waterproof LVT from trusted brands like Downs® H20. Downs® H20 luxury vinyl tile flooring is 100% waterproof, ensuring time-tested performance and beauty.
2020 Luxury Vinyl Plank Trends (LVP)
Trend #1: Wide Planks
Go big or go home: that’s the spirit of 2020, when wide planks will see a major resurgence. Much like their cousin the large format tile, wide planks create an illusion of space, ideal for small rooms and urban apartments.
If you want your home to have a more airy and open feel (but you aren’t quite ready to start knocking down walls just yet), consider wide luxury vinyl planks for your kitchen, bathroom, or dining room. Galvanite flooring is a popular option available in extra-wide styles, creating distinctive looks that will stand up to wear-and-tear.
Trend #2: Wood-Look LVP
Hardwood never goes out of style, but sometimes, it can go out of your budget. Wood-look LVP offers a tasteful solution. Try combining wood-inspired looks with mixed-width planks for a truly trend-forward upgrade!
Trend #3: Light Colors
Pale, creamy colors are expected to make a comeback this decade. Stay ahead of the color curve by choosing light and breezy shades like blonde, white, or honey for your LVP flooring.
