Why go with vinyl flooring?
Categories: Vinyl Flooring | July 22, 2016
Flooring in general has come a long way over the years in both variety of style and material. Long gone are the days of limited options and poor quality choices. Although some vintage styles are making a come back, it is not likely that we will see burnt orange and brown patterned carpet being installed into a kitchen any time soon. Today’s standards of fashion and design are continuously changing with the latest trends. You can keep up with this by painting your walls every few years, replacing furniture, changing your lighting and swapping out décor around your home. With this constant updating you are going to want to choose the right flooring that offers flexibility, classic style and long lasting performance. Here are a few reasons why vinyl flooring may be the right choice for you.
Vinyl Flooring Styles & Types
Vinyl flooring makes for a “great imposter” as we like to say. There are many options and styles that look so good it is hard to notice they are not actual tile or hardwood! There are two different types of vinyl with equally beneficial qualities. First is a roll or sheet of vinyl. This type of vinyl has a repeating pattern, great for providing the look of hardwood floors. This style offers easy clean up because it is completely sealed which ideal for kitchens and bathrooms. Alternatively you can go with tiled vinyl which provides the look of tile flooring. With so many textures and styles to choose from we encourage you to visit our Abbotsford showroom for an up close look of all our samples. Or view our gallery for inspiration.
