When redoing your flooring, you will have so many options to work with. One of the most popular one today is vinyl. The option perfectly balances aesthetics, durability, and affordability. However, like every flooring option, to get the best results, vinyl has to be installed and cared for properly.
Vinyl is a flooring material designed to resemble hardwood. It is available in strips. The product is available in several styles with each mimicking a specific type of wood from hickory to oak and more. Bearing in mind the hardwood mimics real wood, you will be able to find a style that matches your décor perfectly.
If you are on a tight budget but need a hardwood look without the challenging installation needs and high costs, vinyl will be a perfect choice. The option offers a number of benefits.
Once the vinyl floors are installed, the felt product gives a softer feel. While the top layer looks like hardwood and has the same strong feel, when standing on a vinyl floor, the soft feel will make it easier for you to stand longer than you would on real wood. Objects are, further, less likely to break when they fall on a vinyl floor.
Another remarkable feature is the fact that vinyl flooring is water-resistant. This is what makes it a great choice for kitchens and bathrooms. Vinyl has also been proven to offer better sealing against water damage than hardwood and laminate floorings. You will also be able to find vinyl floors that are completely waterproof.
The installation of vinyl planks is quick and cost-effective. This is thanks to the fact that the material can be installed on top of the subfloor directly. You just need to make sure that the subfloor is in good condition before you add the vinyl.
Vinyl is a perfect choice for anyone that doesn’t want to put in a lot of work in maintaining their floors. In addition to being long-lasting, the material requires only routine cleaning. You simply need to sweep and mop occasionally.
When it is properly installed and maintained, vinyl flooring can last for more than 20 years.
You will be able to install underfloor heating under several vinyl flooring options.
The versatility and durability of vinyl make it a perfect choice for just about any room in your home. However, its unique characteristics which include high moisture resistance and the ability to mimic hardwood flooring and tiles make it a unique choice for rooms where other floors cannot do. There are three main places where vinyl will be the perfect choice.
Vinyl is a perfect choice for kitchens because it is durable and moisture resistant. You never have to panic whenever there is a spill. You simply need to wipe the spill off and never worry about stains. Vinyl is also springy thus more comfortable to stand on than hardwood and tiles. Being springy further means when dishes fall, they are less likely to break. Thirdly, vinyl is available in a wide range of styles and textures. You can create just any look you want.
Vinyl is a better option for bathrooms than stone and tiles. It is durable, safe for high moisture environments and sheet vinyl doesn’t have seams. Vinyl is also not as cold as stone and tiles. Vinyl floors are way more comfortable to walk on. You can arrange and orient vinyl in any pattern to achieve your desired look.
Small apartments do best with a single flooring option. Vinyl makes the perfect choice because of its durability, versatility, moisture resistance and ability to withstand heavy traffic.
Vinyl can be used in just about any room. If you need more information on vinyl floors, give us a call today. Our team at HardWood Planet is always happy to offer the assistance you need.
