Although very durable and easy to maintain, vinyl has an unfortunate reputation as being the cheap flooring found in your grandmothers home, due mainly to the lack of its aesthetic appeal.
With the introduction of new styles, vinyl is fast losing this undesirable reputation and is gaining popularity with home owners and interior designers the like. This renaissance in vinyl flooring is attributed to the industry introducing new styles and designs that will match traditional as well as contemporary and modern decors.
The durability of vinyl flooring facilitates its installation in any room in the home, and is suited to low as well as high traffic areas. Vinyl flooring offers the highest degree of water resistance when compared to any other flooring material, making it perfect for installation in wet areas such as kitchens and bathrooms.
Vinyl flooring comes in rolls, tile squares, strips and planks, and remains one of the most affordable flooring options available. Its appeal lies not only in its incredible durability, but also due to its ease of installation. The introduction of self-stick vinyl tile has opened the door to the DIY market and has resulted in a floor that can be walked upon as soon as it is installed.
The industry has recently introduced vinyl floors with the look and appeal
of real hardwood. These floors are available in strips and plank designs, that
when installed look like the real thing, with the advantage of being more durable
and easier to maintain. The addition of textured surfaces and beveled edges
has resulted in a floor that looks and feels like real hardwood, offering the
homeowner a product that can be installed in areas unsuitable to real hardwood
floors, such as kitchens and bathrooms.
