It would seem that wood-look luxury vinyl flooring is just the exact corollary to the previously-mentioned stone-look LVT. Not so.
For one reason, wood-look luxury vinyl comes in planks around 6" x 48"--a completely different look than stone-look's typical 16" x 16" squares. For another reason, it looks more like the substance it is trying to copy than stone-look LVT.
- Thick wear layer = greater durability.
- Overall thickness means slightly warmer floor.
- Many wood species look amazingly like the real thing.
- May not result in better resale value. Uninformed buyers may still see it as just "vinyl floor," thus negating your costly purchase.
