Showcase Your Style with These Fun Patterns for Laying Luxury Vinyl Plank Flooring

Luxury vinyl plank flooring provides a resilient and cost-friendly option for finishing your floors. What’s more, it comes in different designs, and the planks quickly snap together, which makes the installation process easier. While selecting the design is crucial for the perfect finish, the pattern also matters. Your pattern affects the floor’s display and aesthetics, as much as the choice of flooring does. Let’s explore different patterns you can use for a luxury vinyl plank flooring project. Contact us to learn more.

Grid Pattern  

You can achieve a grid pattern by stacking luxury vinyl planks with all their horizontal and vertical edges aligned. This pattern yields a uniform and continuous flow because the planks are of the same size and stacked. You can use both square and rectangular pieces to create a grid pattern.  

Offset Pattern  

For a less continuous feel in a room, you can try the offset pattern, also known as the running bond. This design offsets the adjacent plank by half the width of the planks. This pattern is easy to do during a DIY project because you can accurately measure the distance and repeat the flooring process.  

Stagger Pattern  

Staggering your luxury vinyl plank flooring creates a beautiful and attractive finish. To achieve the stagger pattern, stack the planks on alternating centre lines. Staggered luxury vinyl plank flooring is excellent for adding designs to the floor. You can play around with three colours for a great finish. The first row ends with a short piece so that the second row can start with a full piece that staggers the pattern.  

Diagonal Pattern  

This pattern offsets the planks at a 45-degree angle. It looks like the offset pattern but at an angle from the length of the walls. It gives the room a unique perspective.  

Herringbone Pattern  

This classic pattern imitates fish scales to create an excellent luxury vinyl plank flooring effect. The planks intersect at a 90-degree angle throughout the floor. To lay a herringbone pattern, keep the zigzag’s points parallel to the longest wall in the room, or let them face the largest window. However, it requires more labor and materials to cut the pieces at the right angles on the room corners. 

Mixed-Width Pattern  

The mixed-width pattern combines planks of varying width. It creates a unique design on the floor since the combination of planks can be random. However, this pattern requires planning and plenty of material.  

Corridor Pattern  

The corridor pattern is an excellent way to improve your grid pattern. It combines horizontal and vertical rows in an alternating manner. It’s a perfect way to add a different design of  luxury vinyl plank flooring and mix colours.  

Weave Pattern  

The weave pattern provides a sophisticated finish and makes induces a feeling of movement. This pattern follows weaving patterns and is also known as a basketweave. The planks are usually offset and look like a weaved basket. The lengths and widths of the planks intersect at a 90-degree angle as they alternate across the floor.
