Vinyl flooring options have been around since the 90s. Even with the invention of new flooring material, vinyl still retains its appeal as a practical option for covering floors. Advancement in technology and the adoption of better manufacturing practices has transformed the appearance of vinyl, increasing its appeal as a flooring option for homes and at the workplace.
Vinyl is durable, versatile and easy to maintain. It is water-resistant and it does not stain easily making it ideal for the moisture-prone areas in your home such as the kitchen and the bathroom. However, today’s vinyl products are available in different styles, formats and patterns and this way they can be used anywhere within your home.
If you're stuck on whether or not to lay a carpet down or vinyl it, we made this great guide on Choosing between carpet or vinyl flooring.
Other benefits of going with vinyl floors include:
Vinyl floors are available in different formats, each with its own specific characteristics that make it ideal for different areas within your home or at the workplace. Before settling on a specific type, there are a few things that you have to consider so as to be able to make the right decision on the right vinyl floor for your home or business establishment.Here are the different types of vinyl floors and the scope of their applications.
Sheet vinyl comes in prepared rolls that are either 6 or 12 feet wide. It takes various colours and pattern definitions such as natural stone, hardwood or ceramic tiles. One such piece can be used to cover most of the room resulting in an attractive layout without any joins.
You will require more of such pieces for larger rooms. You will need an adhesive to install sheet vinyl flooring. It is ideal for high-moisture areas like kitchens, bathrooms and mudrooms. It’s possible to provide underfloor heating with vinyl sheets installed but only if the laying process was carried out without a double-sided tape.
Vinyl tiles are available in squares 12 or 18 inches that when assembled properly resemble stone tiles. Vinyl tiles can be laid in a single colour or in a mix of different colours to create a unique design. Their self-adhesive nature allows them to be installed without glue. They are, however, not compatible with underfloor heating as it may cause its glue to come off.
Vinyl planks have a rich natural wood effect. You can pick pale shades like pine or darker tones similar to oaks. They feel warm underfoot and they are easy to install, unlike the natural hardwood planks. They are self-adhesive in nature and makes them incompatible with underfloor heating.
