Vinyl Flooring

Why Choose Vinyl Flooring?

Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT), the fastest growing category in flooring, is possibly the most eco-friendly flooring in the world. It can be endlessly recycled. It has no heavy metals, no solvent based inks, no formaldehydes, and no PCP and components considered carcinogenic in it at all. It’s fire resistant and doesn’t release toxic gases. And importantly, it looks good.

Vinyl flooring and vinyl tiles are trendy, easy to maintain and perfect for nearly every room in your home. Interior designers have worked to provide ranges with some of the best colours and flooring designs in the world. Stone, slate, wood, and tile; vinyl tiles come in all of these clean and modern looks. If your home has real wood floors in some areas and you want to continue the theme throughout, then vinyl in a wood finish is a good option for the wet or high traffic areas where real wood would stain easily and possibly warp.

The reason most people go for carpet is that it’s got warmth, comfort and it’s quiet. It makes your toes feel nice. You want all that – but you don’t want carpet. Thankfully today’s sophisticated vinyl floors can give you all the warmth, comfort and quiet you require. The soft, absorbent backing reduces noise and provides insulation against the cold. And it’s easy to maintain.

Scuff, scratch and stain resistant, the vinyl is finished with a protective coating and only basic maintenance (like sweeping or mopping down with lukewarm water and Universal Cleaner), is needed. What makes our vinyl products perfect for those wet areas is the fact that its Sansol backing is a waterproof membrane that’s resistant to mould, bacteria, mildew and rising moisture.

Buying Tips

A popular alternative to timber, vinyl flooring comes in a range of modern styles. One of the major benefits is its stain-resistant protective coating, which keeps maintenance to a minimum.

To make sure the vinyl you’re choosing will be the perfect colour match for your home, make sure you buy it in your home. The reason we say this that the lighting in the showroom will vary to the lighting in your home. The colour of the walls, especially if painted in a gloss finish, will impact the look of the flooring as well because it reflects in the vinyl. Even the natural light from changing seasons will have an effect on the flooring.

If you’d like to see how much lighting can affect your flooring pop into one of our showrooms for a demonstration, but make sure you’ve seen a sample in the room where you plan to have it installed before you buy it. We can’t advise this strongly enough. Our personnel can give you the best advice after seeing the rooms in which you plan to install the flooring, measuring the rooms and discussing installation needs at the same time.
