One of the biggest decisions when refurbishing your home, or decorating a new home, is what flooring to choose. Flooring needs to be practical and meet your family’s needs. It has to be hardwearing yet attractive and blend in with the style of your home decor. This is why many homeowners opt for luxury vinyl. Below we discuss the benefits of luxury vinyl and how you will know if it is the right flooring choice for you.
Range of styles
The most important thing to know is that luxury vinyl is very different to the vinyl flooring of fifty years ago. Today’s luxury vinyl flooring market is full of varying styles and patterns to suit any room in your home. Finishes include those that resemble stone, wood, concrete and natural tiles.
Ideal for kitchens and bathrooms
The two rooms that need careful consideration when it comes to flooring options are the bathroom and kitchen. So why is luxury vinyl a good option? Well it is scratch and water-resistant, making it the perfect solution for wet and high moisture environments. Luxury vinyl is also more flexible than laminate flooring.
The low maintenance option
If you have a young family and work long hours, the last thing you need is to spend hours cleaning and maintaining your floors. Luxury vinyl flooring, such as the range from Amtico or Moduleo, is incredibly low maintenance. It will not mark, scratch or bleach in direct sunlight. All it needs is a quick sweep and a damp mop to keep it looking like new.
A wonderful alternative to wood floors
If you love the look and feel of real wood, but don’t want a real wood floor in your kitchen or hallway, then luxury vinyl flooring is a wonderful alternative. The vinyl flooring can be laid in planks, resembling planks of wood, but instead of having to use nails, the flooring simply clicks together. This flooring not only looks like natural wood, but it can be made with the grain indented into the surface so that it feels like natural wood.
