Say the words Vinyl flooring and most people find themselves recoiling, images of the green speckled vinyl of the 80’s or brown pattered faux tiles of the 60’s come to mind.
We’re here to tell you that vinyl has come a long way and that not only is it aesthetically pleasing, it’s also a really practical choice for your home.
Extremely durable, vinyl is ideal for high traffic areas such as hallways and living spaces and unlike on carpet or wood, water and mud do not soak in or distort the floor, also making it super easy to clean.
Beyond the practicalities, vinyl also has a new look. Designs today mimic natural fibres such as stone, concrete or wood, and can even emulate the textures of wood grain, giving your home an expensive look for less money and maintenance.
Taking the look a step further, vinyl flooring is no longer laid as as 1 large piece but is now available in tiles or planks. Not only does this make it look more like the surface design but it also means a damaged area is easy to replace without the need to remove the entire floor.
So, given it’s 2016 perhaps it is time to give vinyl flooring another go.
