Luxury Vinyl Plank and Tile Texture Variations
Beautiful from any angle. Thanks to remarkably realistic texture, this is a great description of our Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) and Luxury Vinyl Plank (LVP) styles. Sure to draw admiring glances, they have a tactile appeal that’s pleasing to the eye … and to the touch. Like they came straight from Nature herself. Here’s how we do it:

Shaw uses varying degrees of high-tech embossing to create luxurious wood looks

  • Light texturing adds interest and a subtle appearance, like that of wire-brushing
  • Medium-level embossing creates character, especially following the grain pattern in “species” with lots of movement
  • Heavy embossing creates the look of hearty, substantial “hand-scraping”

  • Light embossing achieves the gentle detail seen in smoother stone looks, like granite or concrete
  • Medium to heavy embossing is used to mimic the appearance of clefted or roughly hewn stone
