Popularized in the mid 20th century, vinyl flooring has become a popular option for homeowners wanting the look of wood, stone, or ceramic floors, but don’t want to pay the high cost in obtaining them. Vinyl flooring is a durable option that can mimic the look of wood, stone, and ceramic, but for a fraction of the cost. This surface provides a slip-resistant and easy to clean surface that is also comfortable to walk on. The main reason why vinyl is a preferred option is that it is easy to clean, which provides great health benefits.
Vinyl flooring is created in layers.
- The base layer supports all the layers above it.
- Next is a layer of fiberglass which keeps the sheet flat.
- A cushion layer is next and it adds bounce and texture.
- The pattern layer supplies the sheet’s color and its looks
- The Wear layer protects the pattern layer
- Lastly, the top coat adds sheen and protects the wear layer.
With a variety of patterns and textures available, there are vinyl options for those who want the traditional look of hardwood or for those who want to go in a more modern direction. Plus, your vinyl floor will be water and stain-resistant, versatile and provide good durability for the cost. This makes vinyl the go to flooring option for kitchens, bathrooms, kids rooms, utility rooms and basements.
