the cyrus series: easy-install luxury vinyl tileMay 22, 2019
One of the hottest design trends in flooring today is luxury vinyl tile or LVT. Homeowners and designers are flocking to LVT flooring due to its durability and ease of installation—but most of all because vinyl floor tiles from MSI look like natural hardwood, for a fraction of the cost. If you love sleek, modern designs or if you prefer a more rustic reclaimed look—MSI has you covered. Let’s take a look at some of our favorite colors and patterns and learn more about the benefits of LVT flooring.
If the idea of vinyl floors makes you think of tacky patterns in your old family home, brush those thoughts aside. Make no mistake, vinyl flooring has come a long way, and they are genuinely premium surfaces that can stand the test of time in design, and wear. In high traffic areas, like entry halls, our Cyrus Vinyl Plank Flooring collection’s classically-styled Sandino looks fantastic, and it is easy to keep clean—even if you have a four-legged friend, or two. Sandino features subtle, realistic wood grains that lend a sophisticated and clean look to any design.

But don’t make the mistake of limiting this product to entries—these tiles are called luxury vinyl tile for a reason. If your kitchen is all about high-design, our Akadia vinyl tile flooring is an excellent complement contemporary cabinetry and accessories. The knots and grains add a touch of character reminiscent of exotic woods from across the globe. If you love to cook and spend a lot of time on your feet in the kitchen, MSI’s LVT will be easier on your legs and feet than sheet vinyl or laminate flooring due to the attached padding.

Do you long for the look of reclaimed hardwood with deep weathered tones and hand-hewn textures? Our Stable vinyl flooring may just be the look you desire. Dramatic, and a touch brooding, this realistic looking textured plank floor is a floating floor with a snap-in installation. Installing floating floors doesn’t require adhesive, you just measure, cut, and click into place. Another benefit? Floating floors are often quieter than other flooring products as it produces a hollower sound than other flooring material types that are attached to the subfloor during installation.
