Why Vinyl Flooring Is Quickly Growing In Popularity

For a good reason, vinyl plank and tiles are among the most popular flooring options in homes and commercial spaces today. They are visually pleasing, mimicking the look of virtually any type of material, from hardwood to porcelain tiles, at a fraction of the cost. Vinyl flooring is easy to maintain and comes in endless design options to match the aesthetics of your space.

If you’re looking for one of the most durable and versatile options at flooring stores in Calgary, here are five reasons why you should choose vinyl flooring.

1. Very Affordable

When it comes to cost-effective materials available at flooring stores in Calgary, vinyl plank and tiles have an edge. While prices vary depending on thickness, pattern, and brand, you’ll find an option matching your budget.

Luxury vinyl flooring is an excellent option if you’re trying to match the look of more expensive materials such as solid hardwood, designer ceramic tiles, and natural stone flooring. The digitally printed layer on vinyl flooring can simulate other materials’ look, grooves, and texture without the high price tag. This brings us to our next point.

2. Endless options of patterns, colours, and finishes

The design layer allows for achieving the look of virtually any material and style, such as:

  • Simulated stone
  • Wood grain patterns
  • Mosaic tile and hundreds of other designs.

Luxury vinyl flooring is one of the most versatile products that can closely resemble the natural material it’s replicating. The most significant advantage is that you can transform any space and add a touch of luxury and sophistication without the high cost or the extensive installation.

3. Made of durable and water-resistant material

You’ll find engineered vinyl flooring at Calgary flooring stores made of a wood-plastic composite. These have thin layers of material, including a backing layer, a dense and moisture-resistant solid vinyl core, a printed vinyl layer that’s resistant to chips and dents, and a protective wear layer.

The water-resistant property makes vinyl flooring ideal for areas that experience a lot of moisture, such as a bathroom or kitchen. Furthermore, vinyl flooring can withstand high-traffic households and commercial spaces.

4. Easy to maintain

Unlike natural stone, prone to stains or hardwood flooring that can easily be scratched and requires polishing and waxing occasionally, vinyl flooring is much easier to maintain. Simply vacuum or sweep and use a mop with a gentle cleanser occasionally.

Additionally, vinyl flooring is resistant to stains, scratches, and dents. However, they can still be damaged, so it’s essential to follow proper care instructions to help your vinyl flooring last for decades to come.

5. Simple Installation

In the last few decades, vinyl flooring in Calgary has come a long way, evolving from bulky rolls to today’s engineered planks and tiles that are simple to install. Unlike other flooring types, installing vinyl planks and tiles can be a DIY project requiring only a few simple tools. If one of the planks or tiles becomes damaged, replacing one or just a few at a time is more straightforward than redoing the whole floor.
