Top 5 Reasons to Choose Vinyl for Your Home or Office

The floors you use on a regular basis have a larger impact on your life than you might realize. Different floor types yield different levels of comfort, cleanliness, convenience, and safety. So, it’s important to choose the right flooring for your wants and needs. With so many options out there, you might not know where to start. Here are five great reasons to consider going with vinyl flooring for your home or workplace. 

Why You Need Vinyl Floors

1. More Comfortable than Hardwood

Flooring companies that have been around a while can tell you there’s stiff competition between hardwood and vinyl floors. This rivalry is warranted, too, as both floors can provide similar aesthetic and functional qualities. While hardwood floors have been around longer than vinyl floors, vinyl has its share of advantages over its wooden counterpart, especially in terms of comfort. Indeed, despite their visual similarities, vinyl floors are softer than hardwood floors, offering some “give” when walked upon. If you’re frequently on your feet in your home or office, vinyl is a great choice for your floors.

2. Relatively Easy to Install

Gearing up for a flooring project can be stress-inducing, to say the least. Finding what you’re looking for is challenging enough. You have to set aside time to schedule flooring professionals to get it done. The less time it takes to install your floors, the better. Fortunately, vinyl flooring installation is relatively quick and painless. In fact, DIY-ers can take a crack at this project themselves if they’re willing. Of course, professionals can work even faster, potentially completing the project in as little as one day.

3. Highly Cleanable and Durable

Not many people enjoy cleaning their floors, but it’s an important task nonetheless. The good news about vinyl flooring is that it’s remarkably easy to clean and keep it that way. The smooth surface afforded by vinyl flooring makes vacuuming, mopping, and sweeping a breeze. Moreover, vinyl is an inherently durable material, able to put up with significant foot traffic, impact, temperature changes, spills, and more — its flexible structure also means it won’t easily crack under pressure and will bend instead when necessary.

4. Versatile in More Ways than One

You might like the look of carpeting or hardwood flooring, but these styles might not suit your office or a given room in your home. If you have something more specific in mind, vinyl flooring can usually deliver. The category of vinyl flooring covers a large range of styles, colors, and subsets. Luxury vinyl tile can replicate the look of wood, porcelain, and more. And vinyl laminate flooring comes in an endless array of colors and visual textures. No matter how you plan on designing your room, vinyl flooring will help you achieve your vision.

5. More Affordable than Many Other Floor Types

Lastly, it all comes down to cost. Even smaller flooring projects can be expensive, and cutting corners will likely result in poor outcomes that don’t stand the test of time. Ideally, you want to invest in quality flooring at an affordable price — vinyl delivers on this front, too. Sheet vinyl is often the cheapest vinyl option available, but even higher-priced vinyl floors will save you money in the long run due to superior durability and extended longevity.
