Vinyl flooring has long been the go-to option when budgets are squeezed, and it is most in demand for areas where moisture is a problem. Vinyl is practical, cheap flooring option, hard-wearing, easy-to-clean and surprisingly stylish.
Perhaps the biggest change in terms of hard-floor finishes in the last decade or so has been the huge advancement in printing technology. The improved reproduction of images and designs is what makes the latest styles of vinyl timber flooring and cheap vinyl flooring so much better than the budget options of the past.
Commercial Vinyl Floors
Commercial premises will often find vinyl flooring a smart and sensible option, particularly in businesses where regular cleaning is essential. From hairdressers to shops and kitchens, vinyl flooring feels secure underfoot, offers cushioning and insulation, but is quick and easy to clean.
The clear protective upper layer of vinyl flooring products helps to prevent the vinyl becoming brittle and chipping over time, while also creating a barrier to stains and dirt. It’s also quick and simple to install with very little wastage and is an affordable choice if you regularly update your commercial premises.
It’s even possible to get vinyl flooring with built in bacterial resistance and, unlike traditional hard floors, it won’t dent, scratch or chip over time. This makes it a solid choice for health-care settings, fitness areas and gyms or anywhere that needs to be kept clean as well as comfortable.
Vinyl In Your Home
Tough, durable, water and slip resistant, polyvinyl chloride flooring is also a great choice for high-traffic areas in busy homes. Easy to clean and resistant to fading, PVC or vinyl flooring is also a good option if you don’t want the hassle of maintaining carpets, solid timber or tiled floors.
Vinyl is incredibly flexible, as it can be purchased in different forms: on a roll like carpet, as tiles such as those offered by brands like Karndean, or as planks similar to laminate flooring. This means you can keep wastage to a minimum. At CCC, we recommend using a professional installer to achieve the best possible finish in your home, particularly if you are installing your vinyl in bathrooms or kitchens where fixtures and fittings are already in place.
Vinyl flooring has largely replaced linoleum, as it is easier to clean and cheaper to produce. It also comes in a huge range of realistic finishes, with stone and wood effects that are almost indistinguishable visually from the real thing.
