There are many kinds of flooring options that are available. Amongst them, vinyl flooring is quickly gaining in popularity.
The reason for this is that, vinyl flooring option comes with several distinct advantages. There are four we’d like to cover in this post.
1) Affordable and durable
If you are looking for a durable floor that is also cost-effective, then vinyl flooring is the one for you. On average, you can expect to spend between $2 and $12 per square foot to have it installed. You can spend half that if you decide to install it yourself. You get further value from its durability. Well maintained vinyl flooring can last you for decades.
2) Easy to walk on and maintain
Vinyl as a material is very soft and smooth. This means that if you install vinyl flooring, you’ll always have a soft surface beneath your feet.
Cleaning and maintaining a vinyl floor is just as easy on your body. All it takes is a soft mop or a cleanser for tougher stains, to keep the floor boards looking new.
3) Lots of design options
The design choices available with vinyl wood flooring are incredible. You can make your flooring look like it’s made of stone or hardwood with printed vinyl. Combining composite and solid vinyl is also an option if you want unique, random patterns decorating your floor. The best part however, is how inexpensive these options are to implement.
4) Water resistant, resilient flooring
Water and moisture damage are things that worry any homeowner. Thankfully, vinyl naturally has natural water resistance. This makes it an ideal pick for kitchens and bathrooms.
One thing to keep in mind, however, is that vinyl flooring is very susceptible to strong UV light. Too much sunlight and it’ll fade.
There are many flooring options to choose from. Each has its own benefits and disadvantages, including vinyl. The one that best suits your home depends on several factors. However, once you have reached a decision, call a professional to help you with the installation.
