3 Benefits To Vinyl Flooring
When updating your flooring and looking for a new material, many homeowners these days are selecting vinyl. That’s because it’s a durable and versatile choice that has many benefits and it’s an especially smart option to consider for specific areas throughout the home. It also happens to be wallet-friendly, helping to stretch your decorating dollars further. Here we outline the three benefits to vinyl flooring.
Mimics The Look Of Other Materials For Less
The latest vinyl flooring options look so good that you might not believe what they’re made of. They effectively mimic the look of many higher-end materials, including hardwood, marble, stone, decorative ceramic tile, and concrete. This makes vinyl flooring a great choice when you want a clean and sophisticated option that looks expensive but that doesn’t cost as much as the material it resembles. It is available in a variety of colours, patterns, and textures, and can have such a realistic appearance that it looks completely authentic. Choosing a printed or a patterned vinyl also allows you to have, for example, the look of wood in a room where it might not normally be recommended, such as a bathroom or kitchen.
Durable, Resilient Material
Vinyl flooring is an ideal material to work with because it looks great is tough, and can withstand heavy use. This is not a flooring type that you need to be precious about and worry about every scratch, dent, stain, or other sign of general wear and tear. It can stand up to kids, pets, and heavy traffic equally. Install it wherever you want sleek, low-maintenance flooring that will last for years. It can also help to reduce noise transfer in the home and is comfortable underfoot, softer than many of the alternatives out there.
Installing waterproof vinyl plank flooring updates the look of your space but even more importantly, it protects it. This material is especially useful in kitchens, bathrooms, and basements—anywhere this is a risk of water damaging your floors. You won’t have to worry about any accidental spills or messes made by pets or children; they wipe up easily and won’t cause further moisture damage. Vinyl is resistant to water, mildew, and stains, and easy to maintain, only needing to be mopped occasionally.
