Vinyl offers a good quality, versatile and cost-effective choice for many rooms in your home.
With a wide variety of designs and colours and a choice of qualities from budget-busting to luxurious, it’s no surprise that vinyl remains a popular choice for flooring.
Vinyl flooring is water-resistant, provides good insulation, and is available in a wide range of designs and patterns — from natural wood- and stone-effect finishes to unusual and innovative designs that complement almost any décor scheme.
Its water-resistant qualities and ease of cleaning make vinyl flooring an ideal choice for bathrooms, kitchens, utility rooms and conservatories. Vinyl flooring is not completely waterproof so isn’t appropriate for wet rooms.
Keep it looking good
Vinyl flooring is easy to keep clean — brushing with a soft broom or vacuuming regularly should be complemented with mopping using non-bleaching floor cleaner when required. You can also prevent the build-up of dirt by using barrier mats at doorways, which will help keep out the vast majority of dirt and dust.
Vinyl flooring is a soft surface which can be damaged by sharp objects, so it would be a good idea to remove stiletto heels before walking on it! Heavy furniture could benefit from castors if the legs are narrow to alleviate some of the pressure on the floor. You should also avoid dragging furniture over the floor as this could not only mark the vinyl but also cause it to lift or rip.
