The Benefits of Vinyl Flooring
We recommend vinyl flooring to homeowners, especially for use in the bathroom and kitchen. There are many benefits to vinyl flooring when compared to other types of flooring such as carpets, laminates and natural flooring. The beauty of vinyl flooring is that it can make your interior look unique and appealing.
Since many people are unaware of the benefits of vinyl flooring, we have put together a few benefits to highlight what a wonderful choice this type of flooring can be for homeowners.
Variety of Design Options
Vinyl flooring offers a variety of design options, as it is available in just about any pattern and colour. Whether a homeowner wants a solid colour or patterns that look like tiles, wood and even natural stone, availability of these options is not an issue. In addition, the choice of textures is also endless, right from smooth to pebbled textures. We also tell homeowners that they can control the way the flooring looks in their homes, as vinyl flooring can be installed as sheets or tiles; and in places such as bathrooms where wet floors pose risks, vinyl flooring can have a non-slip finish to ensure safety.
Resilient and Durable
The durability of vinyl flooring is another of its strong points. When the flooring is laid correctly, it can last for years with very little maintenance work required. It has the ability to handle high volume footfall and is highly resistant to stains. These benefits are not always available with carpets and wood flooring that can stain easily, are high maintenance, and also show signs of wear and tear quite easily. Furthermore, compared to wood and other natural flooring, vinyl flooring is quieter when walked upon and also softer to the feet.
Carpets need regular wet cleaning to remove bacteria, allergens, dust and debris that accumulate in the deeper layers of the fibres. This is one worry that is not present with vinyl flooring, especially if it is laid correctly. It is resistant to water and has few seams, which prevents proliferation of bacteria. It is extremely easy to clean and does not stain like wood flooring and carpet. As a result, vinyl flooring is not only beautiful to look at, but also creates a hygienic environment indoors that can advantageous to people with allergies and asthma.
Compared to other types of flooring, vinyl flooring is economical to buy and install. It can emulate other types of flooring, such as natural stone and wood, and homeowners do not have to incur high costs or resort to heavy maintenance to achieve this look. The durability of the flooring also ensures that homeowners do not have to replace it frequently.
Considering the numerous benefits of vinyl flooring, we at Carpet Connection have no hesitation in recommending it to homeowners who are looking for beautiful and cost-effective flooring.
