Summer is a busy time for us here at our Port Saint Lucie flooring store, and we use that busy time to put our ear to the ground to get an idea of what our customers are into for the season. This year, we noticed a lot of people asking about vinyl flooring in the store. This gave us the idea to put out a bit of info on this popular flooring material, to better help our customers make their best flooring decisions.
Here's everything you need to know about vinyl flooring!
It's an inexpensive alternative to pricier materials
Vinyl flooring has come a long way in the last few decades. Once considered a sort of consolation prize for people who couldn't afford better flooring materials, vinyl has experienced a sort of renaissance, with the advent of new materials and imaging technologies.|
Nowadays, vinyl is a staple of the flooring industry, and popular with consumers for its ability to perfectly mimic costlier flooring materials so well, that even experts have a hard time telling the difference.
Many people want to install wood floor in rooms like the bathroom or kitchen, but are afraid, rightfully so, of the damage that could result from their exposure to water. The best way to get the look of wood flooring without the attendant risks, is to opt for faux wood vinyl flooring. It's pretty much the only way to have your cake and eat it too when it comes to having the look of wood, in danger zones like the laundry room, bathroom, or kitchen.
One of the biggest draws of vinyl flooring is the sheer durability of the material. We mentioned advances in material technology earlier, and how they have affected the quality of vinyl floors. Well, this is most obvious when you look at the wear layers that coat the image layer. The wear layer and UV protection layer act together to keep your floor from fading, and make it almost impervious to everyday impacts. This means your floor will last longer, and save you money in the long run!
