Luxury vinyl flooring offers excellent value per decorating dollar. It's affordable, stylish, and comes with a multitude of advantages.

The flooring offers realistic images of wood, stone, and tile. It's cut into planks (LVP flooring) or square, tile-sized pieces (LVT flooring) to add realism.

There's a wide variety of luxury vinyl flooring patterns you can achieve. Read on to learn more. 

Herringbones and chevrons for wood-look floors

Herringbone has been around for centuries. It was quiet for a while, but it has come back hugely.

The herringbone resembles the bone structure of a fish. It can either be designed with vinyl plank flooring or appear directly on the floorboards.

The difference between herringbone and chevron lies in the board angle. With herringbone, this results in a zigzag image, while the chevron is an inverted "v."

Other patterns include flooring medallions, inlays, basketweaves, offsets, staggers, etc.


One of the most significant advantages of cutting the material is that pieces can be mixed and matched. This can be created with LVT (luxury vinyl tile). 

The traditional colors are black and white. You can, however, use others, such as red and white or gray and black, etc.

Stone, particularly marble, is popular. As a result, many use their LVP flooring in Abilene, TX, to echo stone –with all the veining and color variations Mother Nature utilizes. 

The advantages of luxury vinyl flooring also include 

  1. Waterproof capabilities
  2. Durability with a transparent, strong wear layer
  3. Low maintenance
  4. Uncomplicated installation
