Why Vinyl Flooring Is Quickly Growing In Popularity

Vinyl plank and tiles are some of the most popular flooring options in homes and commercial spaces today – and for good reason. They are aesthetically 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 flooring options in the market, you’ve come to the right place. Here are five reasons to choose vinyl flooring for your home or office in Calgary.

1. One of the most affordable flooring materials

When it comes to cost-effective flooring, vinyl plank and tiles have an edge over other materials. Prices vary depending on thickness, pattern, and brand, but you are sure to find an option that matches your budget.

Luxury vinyl flooring is a great 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 the look, grooves, and texture of other materials 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 real material it’s replicating. The biggest advantage of this 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

Engineered vinyl flooring is made of a wood plastic composite with thin layers of material including a backing layer, a dense and moisture-resistant solid vinyl core, a printed vinyl layer that is resistant to chips and dent, 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 real stone which is prone to stains or hardwood flooring that can easily be scratched and requires polishing and waxing every so often, 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 important to follow proper care instructions to help your vinyl flooring last for decades to come.

5. Installation is simple

Vinyl flooring has come a long way in the last few decades, 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 that only requires a few simple tools. If one of the planks or tile becomes damaged, it’s easy to replace one or just a few at a time rather than having to redo the whole floor.

All of the above is what makes vinyl flooring the preferred choice for homes and commercial spaces. Cost-effective, moisture-resistant, durable, versatile, easy to maintain, simple to install – the list of advantages is endless.
