Whether you are looking for a beautiful kitchen floor or something new for your bathroom, vinyl flooring is one of the options for your flooring. Vinyl flooring has been growing in popularity over the past few years. But before going with popular opinion, let’s take a look at why this flooring is so popular.
Many Different Types of Vinyl Flooring
Vinyl flooring actually comes in two different types including sheet, tile, and plank flooring. Sheet vinyl flooring is laid down in sheets that are either six or 12-feet wide. Tile vinyl flooring comes in nine or 12-inch squares that mimic the look of tile. Plank vinyl flooring simulates stone and wood and comes in plank shapes, which are often 7 inches wide by 48 inches long. There are also three different types of finishes for vinyl flooring. No-wax finishes are great for areas with light foot traffic and minimal exposure to dirt and moisture. Urethane finishes a heavier finish than the no-wax finish. It stands up to moderate foot traffic and is resistant to scuffing. Enhanced urethane finishes are the toughest finishes available. They are accommodating to heavy foot traffic and is resistant to scratches and stains. Vinyl flooring in all its forms has many different benefits to the flooring.
Vinyl flooring is known for its durability. When this flooring is installed and maintained properly, vinyl flooring can last up to 20 years. This flooring is a great choice for the rooms that see a lot of foot traffic. Vinyl flooring also has a wear layer on its surface that helps it resist the scratches and stains many floors attract. Some vinyl products even offer warranties up to 15 years on the wear layer.
Beauty in the Design
Many homeowners love the design of vinyl flooring. This flooring comes in many different colors and patterns that make this flooring versatile. Combine a solid and a composite vinyl flooring to create a unique pattern or choose either a printed or solid vinyl. You can create the look of stone or hardwood flooring without the expense of natural material.
