Does luxury vinyl flooring look like wood?
Yes, when luxury vinyl (LVF) is cut into planks or strips (luxury vinyl plank or LVP). While all vinyl flooring, including sheet, can be made to look like wood, this design option adds even more realism to the product’s authentic wood look.

An explanation of luxury vinyl flooring
This premium, yet budget-friendly flooring, offers images inspired by nature. True-to-life photos of wood, stone, and tile are taken digitally and have micro beveling and deep embossing. The result is a floor with knots, wormholes, grains, swirls, veining variations; the colors are bold, the patterns vivid with a surface that has depth, dimension, and textured looks like wire-brushed, hand scraped, weathered, and distressed.
It can also be cut into groutable squares and is 100% waterproof, submerged, or spilled-on from bottom to top. LVF is so durable it's known as a kid-and-pet friendly product, and it's also low maintenance, requiring only regular sweeping and periodic mopping. Installation is also easy, especially when it's a floating floor where the pieces click together and mat and hover over a subfloor without nails or glue.
