Why choose contemporary vinyl flooring?

If the kitchen is the heart of any home, then it’s fair to say that flooring serves as the veins that allow the heart to function so effectively.

One should never underestimate the power of having a good-quality floor to work from – it’s the key feature of any kitchen, setting the tone for the entire room. Even the best appliances and bench-tops can be dragged down by a raggedy floor.

Vinyl flooring is the answer to this, and it’s more affordable than many other flooring options.

What exactly is vinyl?

Vinyl is a synthetic substance that was invented in 1920 by scientists who wanted to develop a durable material that’s also affordable. Not only is vinyl strong, it’s also resistant to humidity and moisture. This is an environmentally friendly choice, since vinyl is made from a recyclable plastic material that uses less energy and natural resources to manufacture.

What’s so good about it?

High quality, affordable with many versatile options

You’ll feel like a kid in a candy shop when selecting your vinyl flooring options, since there’s a dazzling array of colours, designs, styles and textures to choose from. You can even get it in rolls, tiles or planks, and strategically choose your material to replicate the look of more expensive options, such as wood, tiles and real stone. No one will be able to tell the difference and you can easily match the vinyl to the rest of your home.

As affordable as vinyl flooring is, don’t be fooled, it’s still a high-quality material that comes with many benefits, such as being able to withstand changing temperatures, as well as heavy foot traffic.

Not only is vinyl kind to your wallet, it also provides one of the softest flooring solutions and it’s scratch-resistant.

Low maintenance

Home-owners will breathe a sigh of relief to discover that vinyl is a quick-cleaning product, featuring stain and water-proof characteristics. This allows you to focus on what really matters – cooking up a feast and baking all types of goodies, like the master of the kitchen that you are. Cleaning the floor will no longer feel like a chore, since a quick sweep and mop is all that’s required, and you can also use diluted bleach or disinfectant.

Seek the services of a professional

Vinyl flooring is the perfect option for many homes, but installation may pose a few challenges if your kitchen design comes with a wider-space area. It’s a good idea to get a professional to install your vinyl flooring, since kitchen areas can be complicated spaces to work with.
