The Serenbe™ collection of luxury vinyl flooring as a design statement is difficult to classify. Yet, it seems to enhance so many décor motifs beautifully. Perhaps it’s because Serenbe™ has such a wide range of colors, textures and materials it faithfully imitates. And because of its construction, the installation options (especially for the rigid core version of Serenbe™) are virtually limitless indoors.

The décor idea that is Serenbe™

As a collection, designers have told us that it feels “craftsman-like,” others have described as “country farmhouse,” still others have called it “gentrified chic.” We’d agree with all of that. Serenbe™ taps into a yearning for a coziness and comfort with just a dash of urban savviness. As any ideal flooring choice, Serenbe™ brings it altogether in a space, much like the perfect wine for a meal. It completes, yet does not compete.

Design overview

The Serenbe™ collection is composed in three groupings: Serenbe™ wood-like planks, Serenbe™ elongated 12” x 36” tiles, and Serenbe™ 12” x 24” designer tiles.

The complementing color and stylistic variations found within these groups can actually be used with each other for unique flooring design statements. There are 24 designs in all and all are available in flexible glue down or floating, click-together rigid core construction.

No shortage of woods

Serenbe™ recognizes the fact that people still prefer a wood look, so the collection doesn’t disappoint. There are a dozen styles of exquisitely reproduced woods in 7” x 48” luxury vinyl planks to choose, including oaks, pines and walnut expressions, in a range of finishes from smooth and sophisticated to worn and rugged. The lighter planks, such as Canadian Walnut-Trinity or Urban Oak-Selbourne bring an artisan feel to any room, while the rich, darker stained hues of Urban Oak-Porter or Cottage Pine-Clay are reminiscent of a retro-glamour statement so popular now.

Cottage Pine – Char


Unique dimension in flooring

Novalis® introduced a radical 12” x 36” approach to tile design, which opened up some interesting floor pattern possibilities (three tiles make a square shape). But that’s only part of the story. In this grouping you’ll find true design genius with amazing, fool-the-eye reproductions of crackled woods and richly veined marbles.

If you want capture the attention, admiration, and frankly the envy of family and friends who come to visit, floor your guest bath in Calacatta Marble-Copper or your guest room in Crackled Wood-Thicket. They’ll ask for the name of your decorator.

Crackled Wood – Timber and Stenciled Concrete – Lace

Tile designs with class

Concrete looks in home décor are becoming more common. But Serenbe™ puts an uncommon twist on this theme with a vintage lace stenciled look ghosted throughout a beautifully mottled and aged concrete look. And Novalis® even added two more exceptional Carrara Marble looks to round out this 12” x 24” grouping. It’s all so Serenbe™!

Stenciled Concrete – Bordeaux

Serenbe™ allows you to be as creative as you’d like. Use the flexible glue down version to make herringbone patterns or grout—even the planks. Bring the Serenbe™ look without a second thought to baths and kitchens thanks to the waterproof rigid core version. And all versions of Serenbe™ have the enhanced protection of NovaShield® against scratches, scuffs, stains, abrasions, and fading. It even has antimicrobial protection.
