Luxury vinyl tile (LVT) was all the rave last year, and we certainly anticipate even bigger things for it as we move through 2020. Today, LVT has already moved to the forefront as one of the most popular types of flooring on the market, and it has evolved more so than any other flooring type in recent years.

Each year, manufacturers are rolling out new colors, styles and features for vinyl flooring. Modern new advancements in technology, along with increased popularity and demand for vinyl, have ultimately driven the marketplace. In particular, wood and stone have become two of the most popular sought-after appearances today. These tiles and planks are becoming increasingly more realistic in appearance as they more closely resemble natural materials every year.

So, what can we expect to see from vinyl flooring in 2020?

Luxury Vinyl Tiles
Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) can have natural stone, wood as well as abstract appearances. These are available in tiles or planks. There are many design options available on the market that can significantly enhance your space’s beauty and aesthetics. The costs of LVT have become increasingly more affordable too, and we expect that to continue over the coming year.

If you’re not already familiar with luxury vinyl tile (LVT), here are some of it’s most important benefits:

  • Lower maintenance costs
  • Extremely durable
  • Won’t shrink, crack or split
  • Quieter underneath the foot
  • Adhesive-free installation options

Wood-Look Vinyl
In 2020, vinyl manufacturers will be producing even more realistic products that closely resemble wood appearances. We do not anticipate the demand for this to slow down any time soon either, as wood should continue to be one of the hottest flooring trends for the foreseeable future. Vinyl should not only gain even more popularity in 2020, but we anticipate it to grow even more for many years to come.

Stone-Look Vinyl
With the aid of modern technology, manufacturers have made some of their most impressive strives for stone-look vinyl. Property managers can now truly mimic the beauty of timeless, natural stone for their space, and at a much more affordable cost. Chic and timeless, marble is one of those looks that we do not anticipate ever going out of style. In 2020, we expect to see even more stone-look vinyl flooring used within a variety of spaces.

Waterproof Vinyl
WPC vinyl plank flooring and WPC vinyl tile flooring are best known for being 100% waterproof. You can think of WPC flooring as luxury vinyl flooring, but amped up a notch with a special waterproof core. This can work well in just about any room, but it’s particularly ideal for spaces susceptible to a lot of wetness and foot traffic.
