Hints & Tips
When decorating your home, one of the most important factors is deciding on the kind of flooring that you want. The right kind of surface can make a big difference in the overall look and feeling of a house. There are a number of materials to pick, with one of the most versatile being vinyl. Vinyl flooring is a great choice for a traditional family home because it comes with a variety of advantages. We’re featuring five benefits which could help in your decision making.
A comfortable surface
Vinyl is a comfortable material that is softer compared to wood or ceramic tiles. In addition, vinyl doesn’t get cold in winter, so you’d be able to walk around with an extra degree of comfort. Some vinyl sheets also have a padded underlayer that could make for a better experience as well.
Generally, vinyl is considered a highly durable material that can last between ten to twenty years when properly installed. It’s important to remember the quality of the material will determine how long it lasts.
For example, solid and composite vinyl tiles have colours steeped in every layer, which makes them more resistant to scratches. The durability of printed vinyl depends on the integrity of the clear water layer that protects it. Fibreglass-reinforced vinyl could be considered the most durable.
An affordable material
Compared to other materials like laminate flooring, vinyl is a cost-effective choice. Again, the price would depend on the quality of the material. Finding a balance between price and durability is a smart option.
No one likes a wet floor, which is why vinyl is a good choice for bathrooms and kitchens. A well-installed vinyl floor is highly resistant to water, so you won’t have to worry about a slippery surface. This has the added benefit of making vinyl floors easy to clean.
A vinyl floor is relatively easy to clean and there are plenty of measures you can take to make sure the surface is kept spotless. You can use a mat, brush or approved vinyl floor cleaner to keep the area tidy.
