Vinyl flooring’s design layer is made by a high definition printing process used to create stunning images that are indistinguishable from the real thing. This makes wood vinyl flooring a great choice for large family rooms in need of a style boost.  Do you like the look of unfinished hardwood, dark hardwood, Brazilian cherry hardwood, or rustic hardwood? All these styles and many more are easily attainable with wood vinyl flooring.
