In day to day life, vinyl flooring is often much more practical than its real wood or natural stone counterparts. For one, it’s 100% waterproof, meaning it can be used even on bathroom floors, but is softer and warmer to walk on than marble or granite. Unlike wooden flooring, it’s also designed to be compatible with underfloor heating. Finally, vinyl is much easier to maintain that real wood or natural stone and simply needs wiping over with a mop to stay looking its best.
While vinyl flooring is by no means indestructible, it’s often more durable than real wood flooring. Unlike wooden flooring, it’s tough top layer is resistant to scratches and dents, making it suitable for high traffic areas in the home. What’s more, as wooden floors occasionally need sanding down to remove imperfections and signs of wear, their lifespan is limited. However, as vinyl flooring is made from synthetic materials, it can stay looking perfect for years.
If you opt to have real wood or natural stone flooring installed in your home, you will find yourself paying a premium for materials. As vinyl is synthetic, as opposed to a natural product, it’s much more cost effective to buy. The innovative click and lock design of vinyl is also easy to install, saving you time and money on fitting.
