The Advantages Of Vinyl Floors

Durability Of Vinyl Flooring

The synthetic composition of vinyl flooring makes such floors resistant to water and moisture. Vinyl flooring is relatively easy for you to clean and maintain as it is resistant to the most possible stains from your household. In addition, vinyl-only needs a bit of sweeping and mopping when it comes to cleaning floors.


Let us look at vinyl flooring’s efficiency in two ways: the cost of the amount of work and time to set it up in your spaces, and its cost compared to other types of flooring.

An owner with little experience with construction can easily install vinyl flooring in their homes. Some vinyl floors can be locked together, while others make use of adhesives. Seems easy for those looking to DIY vinyl flooring, as it saves you expenses from hiring professionals. (However, for a job that is done well and correctly, it is best to have the experts do it. And service providers such as Flooring HQ offer these services at an unbeatable price!)

Compared to ceramic, wooden, or other types of flooring, vinyl is more affordable in its price and installation.

Complimenting Looks

With its wide variety of designs, vinyl flooring brings versatility when it comes to the visuals of your spaces. If you are looking for warmth and a natural look for your home, wooden vinyl is a good option.

For those who desire that “industrial” look, there are stone tile patterns for vinyl as well. You can select from a lot of designs and patterns for your vinyl flooring that will fit in with the overall aesthetic of your homes.

Cons of Vinyl Flooring

Lifespan Of Vinyl Flooring

Although vinyl flooring is considered to be more cost-efficient compared to other types of flooring, vinyl lasts for around 10 to 20 years compared to the decades wooden flooring can give you.

Those who choose vinyl flooring should be aware of its limits as vinyl creases under tremendous weight. Apart from that, vinyl floors are prone to punctures, so it is best to be mindful of anything that can cause damage to it.

Installation Of Vinyl Flooring

Despite vinyl flooring’s DIY nature when it comes to installation, it takes caution and precision in placing it in your homes. Spaces between vinyl sheets or tiles can be easily spotted, which can cause dust accumulation and a ruined aesthetic. Vinyl also needs to be placed on smooth surfaces like bumps and holes under it can be visible or felt.

So it is still highly recommended that you contract the services of a professional like Flooring HQ.


Should you like to switch from vinyl flooring, its synthetic material makes it hard to recycle. One would have to be strategic in his or her choice of its placement in their homes.
