Many homeowners improve their homes in the new year so that they can start the year with a space that better meets their needs while raising its financial value. For many homeowners, it becomes a matter of finding a solution that offers both, such as improving your flooring. Vinyl flooring is a popular option in kitchens, bathrooms and bedrooms, thanks to its water-and-stain-resistance, durability, attractiveness and affordability. Here’s why you should consider joining dozens of Gold Coast and Tweed Head homeowners by selecting vinyl flooring.
- Types of Vinyl Flooring
There are generally two types of vinyl flooring; sheet flooring (which consists of flooring material laid down in 6 or 12 feet wide sheets) and tile flooring (which uses 9”x9” or 12”x12” tiles). The difference between the two is that sheet flooring is more water resistant and easier to install, whereas vinyl tiles are replicated ceramic tiles, but more affordable.
- Vinyl Tiles
Most commercial buildings choose vinyl tiles due to the amount of foot traffic their rooms receive as well as for areas that require a clean or static-free environment. As a versatile and affordable option, one can understand why commercial properties opt for its installation. In residential homes, vinyl flooring is often used in areas that are expected to be moister like the bathroom or kitchen. They’re also used to replace high maintenance flooring such as carpets.
- Advantages of Vinyl Flooring
Vinyl plank flooring for one is one of the most popular vinyl flooring applications across homes, offices and public spaces. Most people choose it for its 100% moisture resistance.
