With its endless color and pattern options, vinyl flooring has made a comeback in more recent years as a popular flooring option. Vinyl is considered to be one of the least expensive flooring materials, as well as one of the easiest to install, requiring less time and prior experience than tile or laminate flooring. Like laminate, vinyl can imitate the look of high-end flooring, such as hardwood or tile, at a much lower price point. Although not quite as long-lasting as other flooring materials, vinyl is relatively easy to care for. And since vinyl is nearly impervious to moisture, it is an excellent, cost-effective option for use in moisture-prone spaces in the home.
Ultimately, the final selection of your flooring should be largely dependent on a combination of factors including personal taste, your family’s lifestyle, room use and budget. The floor is a key design element for any room in your home, and with a clear understanding of your options, you can ensure you choose the most suitable material and increase your long-term satisfaction with your new floor.
