The Benefits of Vinyl Flooring

The versatility of vinyl - Vinyl flooring is available in just about any colour and pattern that you can think of. It is the ideal solution for any room in the home.

Floorworld’s Vinyl Design Options

One of the biggest benefits of vinyl flooring is the sheer amount of options you have with design. You can choose from solid colours or from a range of patterns including those that mimic other flooring types including natural stone, wood and tiles. Vinyl comes in different textures – completely smooth to attractive pebbled textures.

Vinyl flooring can also be laid in sheets, tiles or planks either glued, loose laid and clicked together giving you even more choice in how your flooring looks, as you decide how it is actually laid. You can also have non slip finishes applied for safety.

Vinyl Flooring is Economical

A real benefit of vinyl flooring is how economical it is. Per square metre, it is much cheaper to buy and install than many other types of flooring, and if you are handy, you can even install your vinyl floor yourself.

As vinyl flooring is capable of convincingly emulating the look of other flooring such as stone or wood, you can get the look of a natural stone or wood floor without the cost or the maintenance!

Because vinyl flooring is so long lasting, you will not have to replace it for a number of years, which will also save you money. There is also very little in the way of maintenance costs.
Vinyl is Hygienic and Easy to Clean

One of the most popular reasons for choosing vinyl is how hygienic it is and how easy it is to clean. Vinyl flooring is incredibly water resistant and has very few seams, limiting places for bacteria to hide and grow.

Seams are sealed so that bacteria cannot get in. Disinfectants and other sanitising chemicals can be used on the flooring without risking damage.

Your floors are not only clean aesthetically – they are very hygienic making them great for asthma or allergy sufferers.

Vinyl is Durable and Resilient

Another benefit of vinyl flooring is its durability. When laid correctly, it will last for many years with very little maintenance.

Vinyl is a resilient form of flooring handling heavy foot traffic excellently, without wearing and resists stains.

Being very resilient, vinyl is softer underfoot, has more give, so is more comfortable to stand on. This also means that it is quieter than many other hard floor surfaces.
