The 5 Advantages of Vinyl Flooring

When thinking of Vinyl Flooring you probably conjure up thoughts of a brown and yellow ‘80’s kitchen or bathroom with plastic like tiles that have torn and worn around the edges. Vinyl Flooring has come an incredibly long way from the 80’s design disasters and is now considered one of the most stylish, economical and resilient flooring options on the market.

We have researched and found more advantages than disadvantages when choosing vinyl flooring. Here are 5:

1. Low maintenance: Apart from a sweep every now and then vinyl flooring really doesn’t require any further maintenance. The occasional mop with a vinyl flooring friendly solution will get rid of any tough stains and due to its scratch free and stain resistant surface, vinyl flooring will continue to look good after many years.

2. Water resistance: A properly installed Vinyl floor is almost watertight. This therefore makes it the perfect flooring option for kitchens, bathrooms, toilets, laundries and sculleries. Unlike other floors that may warp or disfigure when pools of water lay on them for too long, Vinyl flooring is able to withstand water as long as it has been laid correctly and professionally.

3. Inexpensive: Vinyl Flooring is one of the most cost effective flooring options on the market, however it also looks good and lasts for years. It is therefore a popular choice for large flooring spaces such as offices, shops and warehouses. It is also an excellent choice for an open-plan home.

4. Stain resistance: Vinyl flooring is made with an additional clear, top layer that prevents it from stains and spills. A household with small children or pets benefits tremendously from vinyl flooring as stains are easily cleaned or wiped away without any permanent damage being made.

5. Comfortable: Vinyl flooring is soft and warm, no cold tiles on bare feet in the middle of winter! Vinyl flooring is laid together with a foam or padded layer and this therefore makes it bouncy and soft to walk on.

Vinyl flooring is an excellent choice for any home or office. Due to its affordability, durability and design choices, vinyl flooring can work well in just about any space.
