Matt’s Introduction To Vinyl
Vinyl flooring is packed with a variety of different options, from funky and colourful to understated. Whatever you’re looking for, chances are, there will be a vinyl in that style!
Vinyl is the perfect flooring choice for rooms where water is present. From wet rooms and bathrooms through to kitchens and utility rooms, it provides a waterproof and protective layer for your floor.
Additionally, it is easy to clean and wipeable, making it ideal for areas where there are likely to be spillages or muddy footprints. This also makes it durable and it works well in high traffic areas.
Vinyl floors are also warm and cushioning under foot and can reduce noise; removing the coldness usually associated with tiled floors, whilst still delivering a similar look.
Although vinyl is durable, it does not stand up well under heavy loads and can be damaged by sharp objects. Extreme temperatures and a lot of direct sunlight can also damage it. As a result, we wouldn’t recommend installing a vinyl floor in an area that has a mixed indoor/outdoor use. Additionally, the sub-floor beneath any vinyl should be as dry and flat as possible in order to avoid any lumps and bumps on the surface.
