If you’ve decided to replace the floors in any of the rooms in your home, you might be wondering which flooring is best for your space. While you might be tempted to splurge a little more on hardwood, the best flooring for any space is actually vinyl! Fear not, though – the vinyl flooring of today is much different than the vinyl floors of the 1970s. Our luxury vinyl flooring is perfect for your home. Here are some things to keep in mind when buying vinyl flooring.

  1. You’ll save money. Vinyl flooring is typically much less expensive than other flooring types. For many homeowners, renovation can be costly – and for those who want to stick to a budget, vinyl flooring is the perfect option. But, you don’t have to sacrifice quality over budget. Vinyl flooring is a great deal for the price!
  2. Vinyl is durable. If you’re looking for a flooring that’s durable, look no further than vinyl. No matter if you have kids, pets or both, vinyl flooring will retain its strength and is great in any room of your home. Quality vinyl flooring is scratch-resistant and also doesn’t crack or tear. 
  3. Do you need something water-resistant? Yes, even your bathroom can use vinyl flooring! Our FirmFit flooring is 100 percent waterproof, which makes it perfect for bathrooms and kitchens! Avoid floors that get moldy and have mildew build-up by installing vinyl flooring. Because they’re water-resistant, you can easily clean up any messes the kids or the pets leave behind.

  1. Installation is a breeze. Leave behind any worries you have about installing floors with vinyl flooring. Installing vinyl is a breeze due to the way vinyl is created. Most vinyl floors interlock in pieces, which will make your installation take less than a day in some cases. Of course, if you’re reflooring your entire home, then it might take you a bit longer. However, installing vinyl floors is still much less of a hassle than any other flooring type.

  1. Vinyl is comfortable to walk on. Wood floors can get really cold or hot depending on the temperature outside, and carpet can easily start pilling or matting depending on how many stains it absorbs. Vinyl, on the other hand, stays relatively comfortable to walk on year-round. You will find that vinyl is a great alternative to many other types of flooring because it’s comfortable, durable and stylish. 
  2. Vinyl comes in a variety of styles. Dreaming of hardwood floors but don’t want the maintenance or have the budget? Choose vinyl! Vinyl floors come in practically all shapes, designs and colors these days. Choose vinyl to have all throughout your home, or use it in every room except for your bathrooms and bedrooms. Regardless of your choice, consider vinyl for your next flooring option. 
  1. Cleaning vinyl floors is easy. Unlike other floors that require constant upkeep, vinyl floors are easily maintained. Simply use a Swiffer, broom or even a mop to clean up spills and remove any dust. However, just because the maintenance is easy doesn’t mean that you should avoid cleaning them. Built up dirt, grime and even stains can cause damage to your floors. Despite their durability, vinyl floors have grooves that messes can get into, causing your floors to degrade over time if not taken care of. 
  2. Lay down a rug or two for soundproofing. Even though vinyl flooring has layers, you’ll still want to lay down a rug or two for soundproofing. And, before you ask, yes, adding overstuffed furniture and rugs to your living spaces does decrease the noise level in your home. So, if you live in the city or have a home that’s older, consider adding some additional rugs and plush furniture to get that noise level down some.
  3. Use curtains to keep your vinyl fresh. While vinyl flooring is highly durable, it’s made of materials that are sensitive to sunlight. When exposed to too much direct sunlight, the color of vinyl floors can fade. Keep your vinyl in tip-top shape by using curtains to keep the sunlight exposure to a minimum. If you’re a big fan of natural light, using sheer curtains during the day can help to cut back on how much sunlight your floors receive. You can also set a timer throughout the day to close the curtains and open them back up again. Additionally, if you know you’ll be gone all day, keep the curtains closed and open them up when you’re in the home.
