6 Beautiful Luxury Vinyl Tile Floors

For some reason, most people have an adverse reaction to the thought of vinyl floors. Ok, maybe they’re ok for the bathroom, but for the rest of your home? The fact is, vinyl products have come a long way. There’s even a new category of vinyl floors – Luxury Vinyl Tile (sometimes called LVT).


vinyl tile (or vinyl plank) floor like this one from Carpet One’s Invincible Vinyl Tile collection could be just the floor you’ve been dreaming of.


LVT is a great option for rooms that have moistures, spaces that need a durable flooring option and it can save you money too. Depending on the style you choose, you could save as much as 4 dollars a square foot compared to a similar hardwood style. That really adds up considering the average kitchen size is around 300 square feet.

We also love that luxury vinyl flooring is softer and warmer underfoot. Great if you spend a lot of time standing on your floors.

Perhaps the best feature of Luxury Vinyl Tile is getting the look you really want. Manufacturers have even gone the extra mile in creating tiles that are the shape and size of wood planks (sometimes referred to as Luxury Vinyl Plank) so that when they’re installed, you get even closer to the look a wood floor.  Luxury Vinyl Tile and Luxury Vinyl Plank can have beveled edges and even the texture you would expect in a hardwood or tile floor. You might even forget it’s not the real thing.

Here are some of our favorite rooms featuring Luxury Vinyl Tile. Which is your favorite?

Eat in kitchens get a lot of traffic. Invincible Vinyl Tile can stand up to that.

Entryway Flooring

There’s no getting around tracking mother nature’s messiness into your entryway, especially this time of year. So with spring just a few days away, it’s the perfect time to talk about entryway flooring.

One thing we know for sure, is an entryway is bound to endure a lot of foot traffic, dirt, mud and moisture. For this reason, the well-used space requires a floor that is durable, easy-to-clean and naturally water-resistant. Tile, vinyl and laminate flooring are three great options for an entryway, fitting both the practicality bill and offering style. With today’s advances in technology, vinyl and laminate floors can mimic the look and even feel of natural hardwood, ceramic or stone. Throw tile in the mix, and you have an expansive and varied selection of entryway flooring guaranteed to fit nearly any design style.

Pulling inspiration from two beautiful entryway interiors, we’ve produced flooring palettes that each include a tile, vinyl and laminate option. Continue reading for specifics on the products we’ve featured, as well as general information on the three flooring types. We have a feeling you’ll be learning something new!

Art Inspires Home Decor

Beautiful artwork has long been an inspiration in creating striking interiors. From the subject matter to the myriad of color combinations, art can be the perfect inspirational element to get the creative process underway. In this post I share three color and design boards inspired by three of my favorite paintings that illustrate how art can influence home design.

Modern Romance

The muted pastels, smoldering grays and ethereal whites of Sir Henry Raeburn’s famed portraiture “Miss Eleanor Urquhart” along with  Raeburn’s masterful ability to capture the soft, feminine beauty of the subject convey a timeless romantic aesthetic. These features inspired the “Modern Romance” color and design scheme.


Painted River Cloud Pillow from Dransfield & Ross, Handpainted Charcoal and Indigo Pillow Cover from Delinda Boutique , ‘Curious’ Grey and Yellow Abstract Art Pillow from Zazzle, Eudora Chandelier from Currey & Company, Markham Sofa in Slate Gray from Home Decorators, Booneville Brushed Hardwood from Carpet One Floor & Home, Larkhall Granite Rectangle Rug from Karastan.

Palazzo Posh

Sir Peter Paul Rubens captured the splendor and opulence of aristocratic Italian life during the Renaissance in his renowned portrait of Marchesa Brigida Spinola Doria. The “Palazzo Posh” color and décor scheme was inspired by the shimmering silver, gold and bronze hues of the Marchesa’s gown and the sumptuous velvet ruby red, black onyx and rich mahogany of the interior décor.


Copper Decorative Pillow from John Robshaw, Zebra Pillow from Surya, Lana Wall Sconce from Currey & Company, Hand Embroidered Brocade Pillow Cover from Banarsi Designs, Copper Decorative Pillow from John Robshaw, Griffin Charcoal Sofa from Urban Home, Hawthorne Ottoman from Bernhardt, Bravado Mahir Rectangle Rug from Karastan, Chandler Point Hardwood from Carpet One Floor & Home.

Farm Chic

Intense earth-inspired colors express the idyllic, romanticized farm life that Winslow Homer captured in his painting “The Dinner Horn”. The rustic, autumnal colors, and verdant meadow punctuated by the horn-blowers aqua tinged white dress billowing in the wind inspired the color scheme used in the “Farm Chic” décor scheme.


Graphic Field Pillow from Dransfield & Ross, Primal Decorative Pillow from Surya, Lacefield Bombay Mist Throw Pillow from Layla Grayce, Finial Pendant in Gold from Barbara Cosgrove, Marseilles Hardwood from Carpet One Floor & Home, Garland Chair from Wesley Hall, Pescadero Teal Rectangle Rug from Karastan.
