About Vinyl Plank Flooring
Vinyl is a synthetic material that commonly comes in sheets or tiles. Luxury vinyl tile, which is often synonymous with vinyl plank, has grown as a trend over the years. It has the utility benefits of vinyl while providing improved aesthetic by mimicking natural hardwood and stone. Vinyl planks can be installed like hardwood or laminate and are interlocking, so they do not need grout.
Benefits of Vinyl Plank Flooring
As with all vinyl products, vinyl plank has the advantage of resiliency and water resistance. Vinyl’s resiliency means it is resistant to scratching and dents and that it’s even comfortable under foot. Objects are less likely to break when dropped on its surface, which could save a few dishes in the event of a kitchen accident. Vinyl plank is also a great choice for kitchens and bathrooms because it is incredibly water resistant – much more so than hardwood or laminate.
Vinyl plank can be easily installed on top of an existing subfloor, and the ease of installation means that you’ll save money during the process. Once installed, vinyl is easy to maintain with an occasional mopping, and can last up to 20 years. It is also a recyclable material, so it’s a friendly addition to households trying to be eco-conscious.
Vinyl plank is commonly sought after for its ability to resemble natural hardwood or stone, but it can come in a variety of colors and designs to suit any aesthetic needs you may have. When choosing a room for your vinyl plank, it is important to keep in mind that that vinyl can be susceptible to fading from too much sunlight exposure, and it can be scuffed by heavy objects.
