Best Vinyl Flooring Design Installations of 2017

Vinyl Flooring Designs To Inspire Your Next Flooring Project

For creative designers and architects, vinyl flooring designs offer limitless colors, patterns and textures with which to complete your design visions. With such a wide range of possible industry applications, we are constantly inspired by the installations featuring our beautiful vinyl flooring designs.

Designing with our vinyl flooring can be customized to a space by how the floor is laid out mixing and matching colors, making patterns or working with the direction of the wood grain design. And it doesn’t end with flooring — many of our collections are well-suited for wall applications as well, opening the possibility for continuing or complementary designs and an additional way to bring warmth or brightness to your next project.

Intrigued? Take a look at our top vinyl flooring design installations of 2017:

1. MakeOffices

Parterre luxury vinyl flooring was selected as the anchor design element for MakeOffices, a co-working space in Washington D.C. Designers at Gensler were tasked with designing a space that promoted creativity and collaboration, so they opted for a twist on the flooring choice and layout. To create different zones within the same space, Oak in Rain from the Vertu Luxury Vinyl Plank collection was chosen for its flexible color gradation — offering both warm and cool-toned planks. Gensler then installed Oak in Rain at a 45-degree angle to add energy to the office. Learn more about this unique vinyl flooring installation and see additional photography of MakeOffices here.

Challenged with transforming a 200-year-old bank building into a high-end dining establishment, Assembly Design Studio combined old and new elements to create Ledger Restaurant & Bar in Salem, MA. Though new, luxury vinyl plank designs Starry Oak and Harbor Oak had a blue-tinted, rustic look to them that paired well with items kept from the circa 1818 bank, like the teller window and safe deposit boxes. Read our case study to learn how this use of beautiful vinyl flooring helped designers create Ledger Restaurant & Bar.

3. Gastroenterology Consultants of San Antonio

A wood look design was chosen to create a comforting, home-like atmosphere at Gastroenterology Consultants of San Antonio. Installed in the lobby and reception areas, the soft, linear look of InGrained: Traditional Walnut luxury vinyl plank not only creates that inviting space for patients, but it provides the durability of vinyl that’s needed in an area with high foot traffic.

4. Leasing Office

Multiple designs from our Storri Luxury Vinyl collection were used in the leasing office of this apartment building. The natural stone look of Madal Rift pairs with Kennett Grain’s reclaimed wood design for an intriguing flooring layout of both tile and plank luxury vinyl.

5. The Supper Club at Capo

Aged Jatoba luxury vinyl plank was used in this speakeasy-style entertainment space, The Supper Club at Capo in Boston. Located directly below Capo Restaurant, Assembly Design Studio wanted a wood look that added a bit of class while also softening the space up. Aged Jatoba luxury vinyl ended up being a perfect complement to the mahogany bar and was ultimately installed around the entrance to the club space, the perimeter of the bar and on the dance floor.

6. IA Houston

Designed for their office space, IA Houston chose plank design Antique Chestnut from the InGrained Resilient Plank collection for their lobby. Antique Chestnut luxury vinyl pairs beautifully with the cool gray wall, allowing for the colorful wall décor to stand out.

Featuring both Exotic Walnut and Traditional Walnut from the InGrained Resilient Plank collection, CGLS Architects used the wood look designs to create a welcoming atmosphere inside the government building for both employees and visitors. Both the same smooth and linear walnut design, two colors were chosen as opposed to one to help define pathways and accentuate specific areas throughout the space.

8. Christopher Kimball’s Milk Street 

As a multi-function television studio, test and cooking school kitchen in Boston, Christopher Kimball’s Milk Street uses luxury vinyl throughout its kitchen space. In particular, Paul Worthington Design and Restoration, Inc. chose the natural wood look of Canyon Oak luxury vinyl from the InGrained Resilient Plank collection as a neutral canvas for other aspects of the space to play off.

9. Supermarket

Opting for the look and feel of wood with the durability of luxury vinyl, designers chose Aged Jatoba from the InGrained Resilient Plank collection for this supermarket space. The rich, warm look of Aged Jatoba helps to create a comfortable space to enhance the shopping experience.

10. Dover Point 

Dover, NH apartment complex, Pointe Place, features over 50,000 square feet of luxury vinyl flooring. Finding a flooring option that was easy to clean and maintain particularly for the kitchen and living room areas in a multi-family setting was one of the reasons luxury vinyl was chosen; the other being its design aesthetic. Two different unit styles were created, each with a different wood look design from the Vertu Luxury Vinyl Plank collection. Evening Oak luxury vinyl gives off a contemporary, gray wood look and plank design Winter Oak offers the warm, look of wood ideal for a multi-family space.

11. Medical Lobby

InGrained: Sanibel Walnut luxury vinyl plank adds warmth to the lobby and reception area of this medical facility. Particularly for the healthcare industry, having an aesthetically pleasing flooring design is equally as important as the floor’s function and durability. With its sleek and light wood look, Sanibel Walnut creates a welcoming environment for patients awaiting care.
