These days vinyl is really gaining speed in the race as a popular flooring, and we can thank modern technology for that. A homeowner can now get anything from big, bold hues like reds and oranges, as well as a neutral gray.
Best of all, the color availability of vinyl is completely in line with some of the latest trends in flooring.
For example, one of the hottest trends right now is gray wood, and that’s not expected to end anytime soon. Vinyl flooring can be cut into planks (or tiles) for a remarkable similarity of the real deal, at a fraction of the cost. Get it in wide plank, another hot trend, and in the color gray. Voila! You have a farmhouse or rustic style.
Another hot trend is retro chic. If it’s too much color for you, just add a few pops of red, orange, purple, or some vibrant hues on the floor. Then coordinate it with some colorful stools, knick-knacks, or even toys.
Contrast is also big so think about mixing and matching; for instance, you might use light tiles such as gray or white, combined with a few dark vinyl tiles. Also consider high variation color: Different shades of the same basic one, such as mixes of light, dark and medium gray.
Other reasons homeowners love this flooring
●Style. We alluded to it earlier when we spoke about vinyl planks and tiles. There are so many species, designs, and patterns; it’s easy to create something unique to you. Textures can give it a distressed, wire-brushed, or antique look, no more flat image!
●Durability. As you undoubtedly know by now, it is a layered product. At the top is a highly protective clear plastic wear surface that makes the flooring 100% waterproof. It is also scratch and stain-resistant; you can’t “walk-off” the image and spots, such as lipstick or nail polish, can wipe right off. It’s so tough; it’s one of the most recommended products for kids’ bedrooms or the playroom.
●Budget-friendly. You can get the look of hardwood, tile, or stone at a fraction of the cost.
●Easy-care. Sweep daily and mop with a manufacturer-approved detergent.
