Nothing says rustic cabin decor like a reclaimed or barnyard wood floor that is recycled wood from old warehouses, barns, and other locations. Unfortunately, reclaimed wood floors have a worn appearance with scrapes, burns, and nail holes.
That look and more are possible with luxury vinyl plank. In addition, manufacturers echo these appearances with techniques like embossing.
This is just one form of luxury vinyl (LVF) cut into long planks, mainly used to create hardwood floorboard echoes. The other form refers to cutting the material into square, tile-sized pieces.
Aged or distressed wood floors
Any wood floor with this appearance is considered rustic, whether reclaimed; gray; whitewashed; light, medium, or dark. Rustic floors are rugged with color variations, knots, grains, and textures.
Planks are wide, or layouts are random-width. All are possible with a vinyl plank, also known as LVP.
About textured appearances
With embossing, the vinyl plank has the same rustic textures as genuine wood floors. They include brushed, hand-scraped and distressed.
In addition, embossed-in-register is a technique that forms little indentations that match the image. Many tell us this is the most realistic yet.
Where does luxury vinyl tile fit in?
Anything rustic utilizes stone on the floor, walls, or backsplashes. The square, tile-sized pieces echo this material with textures, finishes, color, and veining variations, such as Benning by Pergo Extreme.
Right now, wood look tiles are trending, and that's expected to last at least 15 years. So create that look with LVT.
