We are all about the level-up. From our jobs to our style, our home décor, even our personal aesthetic on social media, when we level up in something, it makes all of our daily hard work and commitment worthwhile. It makes us feel like we know what we are doing- like we are actual professionals!

When it comes to being a “Pro”, it all comes back to learning and applying knowledge to be better moving forward. As you refresh your favorite spaces, one of the biggest grown-up decisions you will need to make is which flooring type will uplift your vision while providing the level of performance needed. Thankfully, DuraDecor’s Polished Pro Collection Luxury Vinyl Planks make everything that much easier:

Whether you want to upgrade your own place or your place of business, the Polished Pro Collection lends 8 fashion-forward looks that are as tough as they are gorgeous. And if you want to complete a DIY installation, the three installation specifications to select from—2.0 mm glue down, 2.5 mm glue down, or 5.0 mm ‘click and lock’ floating floor with foam underlayment— are designed to work with your level of DIY experience so that the results look as professional as you strive to be!

Another major plus? These trademark tones and updated classics will also make you look like a design expert. To brighten and lighten, Golden Glow (below) and Silver Livings provide the airy planks that use natural light to perfection and make a floorplan feel more open:

Cool, versatile greys, as well as hip greige with brown undertones, will serve multiple décor themes with ease and deliver plenty of chic appeal. Wood visuals like Perfect Pewter (below), Ashen Griege, and Smoky Stone are ideal choices for a neutral yet eye-catching anchor to your favorite room scene:

If you love the trend of warm blondes and honey hardwoods that help keep the vibes high indoors and match well with a variety of paint colors, patterns, and furniture styles, Honey Harmony (below) floors pull this bedroom together effortlessly with natural beauty:

A deeper wood tone such as Truly Brown (below) or Urban Granite will give that same bedroom a darker, more dramatic feel while lending organic luxury that’s still relaxing and soothing:

If you prefer the Polished Pro Rigid Core option, your 5.75” x 47.75” planks are offered in 5 mm and 5.2 mm thicknesses, as well as 12-mil and 20-mil wear layers for premium durability. The equally realistic Polished Pro Glue Down option comes in 6” x 48” plank size and is offered in 2 mm and 2.5 mm thicknesses and with 8-mil and 20-mil wear layers. Whichever option fits your ‘pro-level’ best, your planks come with a scratch-resistant polyurethane finish and impressive Residential and Commercial Warranties that bring peace of mind in addition to stellar style.
