Vinyl flooring has been the go-to cost-effective flooring solution for decades. That said, the arrival of luxury vinyl tile brought a new level of sophistication and luxurious looks to the vinyl category. Stone-look luxury vinyl tile is galaxies away from the vinyl flooring of the past. It not only mimics the appearance of authentic stone, but it provides a long list of superb benefits that the real thing simply cannot offer.

Keep reading to learn about these highly sought-after benefits and how they can remove stress from your busy schedule. We'll also look at five of MSI's most breathtaking stone-look luxury vinyl tile offerings.


The first of many luxury vinyl flooring benefits is its fantastic ability to look almost exactly like natural stone. The similarities are so close that many people can't tell the difference. With stone-look luxury vinyl tile, you get the coveted look of glamorous surfaces like marble with the same level of beauty and elegance without the maintenance.


For example, look at the Mountains Gray™ Luxury Vinyl Tile pictured here. Thanks to the MSI exclusive polish, PietraTech™, this stone-look luxury vinyl tile flooring provides the appearance of smooth polished marble, but you'll never have to seal it or reseal it like marble. In addition, the flooring is 100% waterproof featuring our exclusive — CrystaLux™ WearLayer technology. This layer offers supreme protection, providing longevity and durability against everyday wear and tear. It's an excellent choice for basements, since it's 100% waterproof.
