Choosing Vinyl Flooring

Carpet and hardwood flooring is not the only viable option for your home flooring decoration, though they equally can be the most expensive. In a point of time where cost is the most deciding factor, no one wants to break the bank when looking to spruce up their home. In truth, they don’t need to either. Choosing vinyl flooring for your home has become an option that has seen a significant resurgence in the 2020s due to relatively cheaper costs and the benefits they provide.

Although it has been around since the 1930s, the quality has seen huge advancements in 90+ years to present it as a true alternative that is better in areas than carpet and hardwood.

If you are currently in the market for a flooring update and stuck between your options due to costs, here are some reasons why LVT – such as Karndean Click vinyl flooring – is the better option.


The main advantage that vinyl tiles and planks have over other floorings is that they can come in a wide range of patterns and colour options, providing a much more versatile product.

Vinyl has progressed so far that it can perfectly replicate hardwoods, stone and porcelain. That gives you a certain aesthetic look with the benefits of vinyl’s fabulous finish. These traits can prove even more expensive in the genuine products themselves, giving you a more cost-effective option when you cannot afford wood or stone options.

Maintenance and Durability

Today’s vinyl flooring products – such as Quick-Step vinyl flooring – are all designed to be 100% waterproof, hygienic and resistant to stains. That makes it one of the easiest products to care for and keep clean.

A simple sweep rids dirt and debris whilst a mop with specialist cleaners keeps it looking its best. Vinyl tiles are filled with non-allergic properties that protect those with asthma or pet allergies. Underneath the design are layers that make the product one of the most durable in the market – designed for high-traffic areas such as hallways and kitchens.

The protective top layer improves the resistance to scratches and denting, contracting and expanding to aid longevity and be resistant to wear and tear.

Choosing Vinyl Flooring – Easy Installation 

Vinyl flooring is provided in different forms – such as sheets, planks and tiles. The one thing that ties them all is the ability to install them easily and quickly.

There are glue-down options and click-together options that are easier than laying a carpet or hardwood. One of the deciding factors is that vinyl can be self-installed instead of hiring a professional fitter to do the job, creating further savings on the home design budget.
