Luxury vinyl is designed to look just like more expensive flooring – think hardwood, marble, or slate – only that it is very comfortable. Vinyl sheets can mimic the appearance of stone flooring, tweeds and metals, not to mention leather. Vinyl tiles are great for creating patterns using blocks.
Regular sweeping and the occasional mopping are all it takes to keep your vinyl floor looking immaculately clean. This is a low maintenance floor as far as cleaning is concerned. Any dirt that spills on a vinyl floor is not that difficult to wipe away. Use normal cleaning products for this purpose. There is no need to go through the trouble of waxing.
Vinyl offers quality at an affordable price. Even luxury vinyl is relatively cheap compared to other types of flooring.
Vinyl floors are not that hard to install. If you are generally handy around the house, there is a good chance you can install your own vinyl floor without any problems.
Unlike wood, vinyl is very good at resisting water damage. It actually does very well in the bathroom, unlike wood. Besides bathrooms, vinyl is also perfect for kitchens and laundry rooms.
Vinyl flooring lasts at least a decade before it starts to show some signs of wear and tear. This means that you will definitely get value for your money. The warranties offered for vinyl floors can be as long as 20 years depending on the manufacturer.
These floors are comfortable in cold weather. They do not get too cold because they are poor conductors of heat. They remain reasonably warm even in winter.
