The complete guide to Vinyl Flooring: Is Vinyl Flooring a Good Fit for Your Home?

For the second part of our series, we will discuss answer this one simple question: Is vinyl flooring good for your home? If you missed part one, catch up here!

Before you can purchase vinyl flooring, it is important that you make sure it is the right choice for you. Vinyl is a suitable option for any home, but it comes with numerous benefits that make it worth its installation time.

Vinyl flooring is great for pets

Pets can make a mess. Therefore, the durability vinyl has to offer is truly beneficial. It can handle the wear and tear that comes from claws, ensuring your flooring will continue to look new over the years. It is also easy to keep clean, meaning muddy paws or other accidents will be the least of your worries.

A final benefit for your pets is that it will be comfortable for little paws. This makes it a much better option than real wood or stone flooring!

Great for homes with children

Again, the durability and easy maintenance of vinyl flooring makes it the perfect option if you have children. Your first thought might be to install carpets in your child’s playroom or bedroom, but vinyl flooring will actually make things easier, especially when it comes to sticky fingers and spills!

Can you install vinyl flooring on stairs?

Unfortunately, not every style can be used on stairs. However, this doesn’t mean you have to look for an alternative flooring type. There are plenty of alternative vinyl flooring styles available that can be installed on stairs while still matching your theme and design.

In what rooms should you lay your vinyl flooring?

Thanks to vinyl flooring being so versatile and available in a wide range of finishes, any room in your home will benefit. With easy maintenance and high durability, vinyl flooring is commonly used in busy rooms such as hallways, kitchens and playrooms.

Vinyl is also a great way to waterproof your kitchen, bathroom and laundry room. You can use these spaces without the dear that spills and splashes will not have a negative impact on the quality of your flooring.

Of course, vinyl isn’t limited to just these spaces. With so many beautiful flooring designs for you to choose from, you can install it in bedrooms, living rooms, and more!
