If you’re planning on giving your home a revamp, one of the best places to start is with the floor. Most people are reluctant to install new floors as we see them as money and time-consuming. Luckily, there are more and more alternatives that are kinder to your bank account without sacrificing style. This post brings you one of these alternatives, vinyl click flooring, and we will tell you why we think it is a great choice.
As with any vinyl floor, click vinyl is very durable. It is because of the combination of different synthetic material such as PVC, a vinyl sheet, a foam core and a felt backing. So, if you have pets you won’t need to worry about potential scratches ruining the surface look of the floor. Similarly, this makes them ideal for rooms that experience high traffic, like kitchens or hallways. Another great practical advantage is that vinyl floors are totally waterproof. Some floors are only water resistant, meaning they can’t be used in rooms like bathrooms. With a click vinyl floor, however, you can rest easily in the knowledge that the floor won’t perish with exposure to moisture and liquid.
Not only is this floor budget friendly and durable, it is also very easy to maintain. The only upkeep it needs is a regular sweep and or hoover and the odd mop with warm soapy water. This eliminates the need for any expensive, special cleaning products that will set you back long-term. Regular maintenance can see these floors give you a long 20 years of use before needing to be altered or replaced.

You can find lots of lovely designs and vinyl floors that imitate different species of woods and tiles. Not only does vinyl look stunning, it feels too. Thanks to the felt backing we previously mentioned, vinyl flooring has a very soft feel underfoot which makes it a very comfy surface to walk on.
