Indoor-outdoor living has been a strong trend and continues to gain traction as more people invest in making their properties their personal oasis. Now, you can mimic luxury vinyl tile, or LVT, outside with MSI’s latest Indoor/Outdoor Collections and blur the lines beyond the wall.

One of the biggest luxury vinyl tile benefits is that the waterproof floors can be installed continuously throughout a residence or business. Finally, you can take this seamless concept one step further by choosing from six LVT offerings and two porcelain pavers in two coordinating colors. Let’s check out the Fauna and Katella Ash collections to see which one suits your next project best.

The Fauna Collections

In this collaborative collection, the Fauna offers authentic wood looks in light brown tones with dark brown knots and graining. With three LVT options and one matching porcelain paver option to choose from, these classic yet current flooring materials will breathe new life into your indoor-outdoor spaces as they marry modern with traditional.

Fauna Cyrus

The Fauna LVT from MSI’s Cyrus Series comes in 7x48” wood-look planks in the traditional brown tones. The 100% waterproof luxury vinyl tile features a rigid core for durability, 5-mm thickness, patented locking system for easy installation, and pre-attached backing for added comfort and sound absorption. It also comes with all the necessary trim pieces like T-molding, reducers, end caps, and stair noses to complete a single- or multi-story install. The 12-mil wear layer is better suited for residential installs, but the Fauna Cyrus LVT does come with a limited residential lifetime warranty and 6-year light commercial warranty.

Fauna Prescott

The Fauna LVT from MSI’s Prescott Series also comes in 7x48” planks in the same realistic wood tones. The brown-hued luxury vinyl flooring offers a lot of similar features, such as a rigid core, patented locking system, and pre-attached backing. However, it’s a thicker product with an overall 6.5 mm thickness and a 20-mil wear layer, which makes it suitable for both residential and commercial installations. The Fauna Prescott LVT comes with better warranties, including a lifetime limited residential warranty with a dent warranty, a 20-year limited light commercial warranty, and a 15-year limited commercial warranty.

Fauna XL Cyrus

The Fauna LVT from MSI’s XL Cyrus Series offers all of the same features as Fauna Cyrus with the exception of the sizing and edging. This stunning LVT option comes in oversized 9x60” planks for a more modern styling, and the large-format LVT may also be better suited for larger spaces. It features enhanced beveled edges for more distinction between planks. When pairing it with tile that requires grout, the looks for both will be even more seamless. The 100% waterproof flooring also offers a rigid core, 5-mm thickness, 12-mil wear layer, patented locking system, and attached backing. The Fauna XL Cyrus comes with a lifetime residential warranty and 6-year light commercial warranty.

Fauna Porcelain Pavers

The Fauna pavers from MSI’s Arterra Porcelain Paver Collection features the same realistic wood-look style as those offered in the Fauna LVT series. Now you can have the warm hues of wood outdoors and continue your indoor flooring style to a patio, pool, backyard, or atrium. The 8x47” brown tiles in a matte finish are slightly different in size compared to Fauna luxury vinyl tiles, but they will give the same attractive look, durability, and low maintenance you’d expect of both porcelain and LVT. The Fauna rectified porcelain tiles come with a PEI 3 rating suitable for light to moderate traffic areas. These pavers also come with matching 13x24” copings perfect for topping pool edges or walls.

The Katella Ash Collections

In this new indoor-outdoor collection, the Katella Ash offers realistic wood knots and graining that blend in more with its gray coloring. Also in three LVT options and one matching porcelain paver, these flooring choices are perfect for a number of design styles, from modern to rustic to minimalistic. Let’s check out the specifics for each selection.

Katella Ash Cyrus

The Katella Ash LVT from MSI’s Cyrus Series comes in 7x48” wood-look planks in the darker gray hues. The 100% waterproof luxury vinyl tile features a rigid core for durability, 5-mm thickness, patented locking system for easy installations, and pre-attached backing for added comfort and sound absorption. It also comes with all trim pieces needed like T-molding, reducers, end caps, and stair noses. The 12-mil wear layer is better rated for residential installs, but the Katella Ash Cyrus LVT does come with a limited residential lifetime warranty and 6-year light commercial warranty.

Katella Ash Prescott

The Katella Ash LVT from MSI’s Prescott Series also comes in 7x48” planks in the same dark gray wood tones. The luxury vinyl flooring offers a lot of similar features, such as a rigid core, patented locking system, and pre-attached backing. However, it’s a thicker product with an overall 6.5 mm thickness and a 20-mil wear layer, which makes it ideal for both residential and commercial installations. The Katella Ash Prescott LVT offers a lifetime limited residential warranty with a dent warranty, a 20-year limited light commercial warranty, and a 15-year limited commercial warranty.

Katella Ash XL Cyrus

Now you can have the cool tones continue from the indoors to the outdoors.
