Ken's Quick Answer:

It’s hard to coordinate wood-look floors between two adjacent rooms (a problem often found in older homes with a separate kitchen and dining rooms). Consider a stone or tile look in the kitchen instead. And if you don’t want to pay for the real thing, we have great news - tile and stone looks in luxury vinyl have come a long way in recent years. We show you some of the latest styles below.

Ken's In-Depth Answer:

In today's kitchens, there are two scenarios. First, you may have a kitchen that blends right into the dining room and living room. That's called an open floor plan. If you have wood in the dining room and the living room, you have to put wood in the kitchen.

However, in older houses, the kitchen tends to be separate from the living room and dining room. In that type of space, you may not want a wood look—it's difficult to coordinate with the hardwood that you already have in the dining room. That means a stone or tile look could be your best option. Unforunately, tile is expensive. That's where the beauty of stone and tile looks in luxury vinyl plank come in.
