Why are vinyl floorings gaining popularity?

8 out of 10 customers are now requesting for vinyl floorings for their homes.  Why are vinyl floors an in –demand option among homeowners? Without doubt, the floor is one of the largest surface areas in any home. It is therefore critical to choose the right flooring to meet your lifestyle demand. In the market, the prevalent choices for laminate flooring and vinyl (resilient) flooring tend to create an intense dilemma for decision maker.

1. Versatility of designs and patterns

When it comes to interior design, you will need flooring that has diverse design and colour patterns. Vinyl flooring fit this criterion. The layer of decorative paper film within the flooring provides a realistic wood grain look. This means that there is almost infinite possibility of design patterns and colours.  The in-demand colours to go for will be the off white with light grey in-grain prints. Many young homeowners are going with this option so as to allow their apartments to look bigger and more contemporary.

2. Fast and Swift installation

The last thing you should bother about during your renovation journey is the ease of installation. If the nature of work is complex, you are likely to fork out a larger sum of investment for renovation work. Fortunately, vinyl flooring comes with an easy installations system. This means that it can be installed directly onto your existing floor. Of course, if you have a bare floor, it is important to ensure that the floor is screeded to level to prevent any “bump” within your floor.

3. Firm foot feel

Compared to laminate flooring, vinyl flooring tends to have a higher density. This means that there is less hollow feel when you step onto a vinyl floor.

4. Waterproof flooring

To meet the dynamic lifestyle needs, having a waterproof floor is an essential requirement in your home planning journey. Vinyl floor is waterproof and does not face similar problem. Given this unique property, you can have wooden look vinyl flooring in your kitchen, which was unimaginable in the past with laminate flooring. What’s more, maintenance is easy given that you will just need a mop to clean the floor. With the given tips above to guide you towards choosing right flooring, vinyl flooring is an ideal choice for family with active lifestyle and less disposal time for home maintenance regime.
