ALL ABOUT VINYL FLOORING

Vinyl flooring is one of the most durable and resilient flooring products in the market. Vinyl flooring offers cost effective solution and can be installed anywhere throughout your home from high-moisture spaces like bathrooms to cosy family rooms.

Vinyl flooring has long been a family favourite – especially in high traffic areas and wet areas such as kitchens. This is due to its ability to resist moisture along with its durability. Vinyl flooring is actually PVC plastic produced as flooring.

Vinyl flooring gives you the ability to select from an exciting range of designs, pattern, colours, textures and qualities, that makes vinyl’s more applicable to a far wider range of application. The innovative cutting edge technologies create natural looking textures and greater visual depth that closely resemble wood, tile and even stone.

ADVANTAGES OF VINYL FLOORING

 

Waterproof – Vinyl is a water resistant material that is impervious to penetration from moisture.

Cleaning – Maintenance is key in a kitchen where spills and splashes of various food stuff, are going to occur on a regular basis. Vinyl tends to be relatively stain proof and easy to care for, but some regular cleaning is required.

Comfort – Prolonged standing on hard surface floors can be fatiguing and painful to legs and feet. With vinyl, you have the option of placing a sheet of padding beneath the surface covering in order to soften the impact of foot falls. The thickness of the padding will determine how soft the floor is, but thicker material will be more expensive.

Dropped Objects – Cooking is kind of a juggling act and whenever you drop something; your floor will be there to catch it. With vinyl the surface that a dropped dish or glass hits will be relatively soft, making it less likely those accidents will turn into dangerously shattering housewares.

Design – This is where vinyl really shines. Modern manufacturing processes have led to the creation of vinyl flooring which can simulate nearly any other material, whether its tile, natural stone, or hardwood. It is even possible to get textured elements in the surface structure of the sheet or tiles in order to simulate the natural feel of the material..
