For decades, vinyl has been a popular flooring choice. However, it’s not your typical kitchen flooring option. With the latest technological advancements, the shiny and plastic looking vinyl has undergone a metamorphosis, becoming more matte, durable and wear-resistant than before. There are more reasons why you should make vinyl flooring your top pick.
Before you make your purchase, there are a few important things you need to determine.
Determine the thickness needed: A thick wear layer is more necessary than thick flooring. The top layer of the floor needs to be thick and sturdy because that’s what will determine its longevity. The topmost layer will be responsible for resisting wear, tear, rips, gouges and traffic.
Review the warranty: An adage that’s always true is that ‘premium products come with the best warranties’, flooring is no different. It’s essential that you review the warranty, features and performance aspects of the flooring. These three aspects will determine if what you are buying is a good deal or not.
Know the price: There are varieties of design and various quality grades of vinyl flooring. With respect to the quality and design you chose, the price is decided accordingly. While vinyl flooring is affordable compared to other options, the total cost can fluctuate depending on the amount and quality needed.
Vinyl flooring has several advantages over other types of flooring. Its unique composition makes it amongst the best for rooms with a lot of moisture and its cost make it ideal for a renovation on a budget. Just remember to shop smart if you decide to invest in this flooring option, and consult a professional if you need help.
