There are many benefits to choosing vinyl plank flooring and that is why so many homeowners choose it for their renovations. For starters, it comes in as many designs, if not more, than real tiles or timber planks. You can find vinyl that looks like ceramic, marble, stone, timber and more. Today’s vinyl floors have a realistic look that you won’t immediately be able to detect as not being the real thing.
Many people appreciate the comfort and softness underfoot offered by vinyl floors. They are warmer and softer than both real timber and tile floors. This is because they have a soft layer of felt or underlay fabric underneath. Some types also have a third layer at the top to protect the flooring from damage and this also adds to the softness.
Vinyl floors can be very durable as well. They hold up well in areas with even heavy foot traffic such as in living rooms and kitchens, In many cases, vinyl tiles can last as many as 20 years or more, with some offering lifetime warranties. In most circumstances, when properly installed, vinyl plank floors should hold up for at least 15 years or more. Vinyl plank flooring is also water resistant, so it’s ideally suited for kitchens and bathrooms.
One of the most appealing aspects of vinyl floors is that they are easy to install. In some cases, they simply have a strip of paper or plastic that can be peeled away to reveal an adhesive backing. In others, you will need to apply a separate adhesive to the floor first. You will not need grout, mortar or nails to install vinyl floors. Vinyl planks can often be placed over the top of subfloors or even existing flooring and it is an excellent solution for floors that experience movement or cracking. Even if you don’t want to install the flooring yourself, an easier installation usually also means it will cost less to hire someone else to do it.
Finally, you’ll find that vinyl floors are extremely low maintenance. Once they are properly installed they only need to be swept and mopped to keep them clean. You do not need to wax them.
