Vinyl has made something of a comeback in recent years, with more and more homeowners and rental property pros choosing vinyl flooring for their homes. If you grew up in the 1960s or 70s, the words ‘vinyl’ and ‘luxury’ probably don’t conjure similar images in your mind, but times have changed, and vinyl flooring is now enjoying its heyday, minus the tacky designs and with higher overall quality than in the past. To find out if vinyl wood flooring is right for your home, read on and discover what Bargain Carpets can provide for property owners in the Melbourne and Adelaide metropolitan areas.
Know Your Plank Flooring Options
Vinyl flooring was invented in the 1930s and made a massive impact in the post-World War II architectural world, eventually replacing the prominent position that linoleum had held in the home up until that time. The reasons behind vinyl’s rise are easy to understand. The material was (and still is) exceptionally water-resistant, and it made for an inexpensive and low-maintenance floor covering.
Vinyl is still an attractive option for homeowners for these same reasons and is now available in a vast array of options. While the vinyl of yesteryear gained something of a bad reputation for looking ‘cheap’, today’s vinyl flooring is a far different story, as it is increasingly being used in new and upscale home construction worldwide.
Vinyl plank flooring is a popular choice instead of wood and laminates due to its higher resistance to wear and tear than either of these other options. It is also less likely to get damaged by water, even if you experience a plumbing leak in the home. Vinyl planks are available in a variety of shades and grain types, mimicking the look of hardwood without the drawbacks or added costs that come with natural wood planks.
