Vinyl flooring: Is it the right choice for me?

If you’ve been looking to install new flooring in your property, the chances are you’ve come across vinyl. Vinyl flooring is a hugely popular option for homes as well as commercial properties. It is a versatile flooring that can suit many different interiors. However, knowing if vinyl flooring is the right choice for your property can be tricky.

Here at Tech Flooring, we want to help you pick the perfect floor. To guide you, we’ve created some questions to ask yourself before choosing vinyl flooring.

Vinyl flooring: Is it the right choice for me?

Partway through our recent installation

What room is it for?

This is definitely the first thing to think about before installing vinyl flooring. Vinyl is durable, waterproof and stain resistant. Because of this, it works well in ‘messy’ environments such as kitchens and bathrooms. If you have a busy home (perhaps with pets and young children) then vinyl is a good choice for the whole house. The bedroom, however, might be more cosy with carpets. Get in touch today to find out more about vinyl, carpet and more!

Can it be used in commercial properties?

Yes! Vinyl is a popular choice for commercial properties because it is so low maintenance. Vinyl flooring works brilliantly in places like hair salons or cafes. This is because it can be cleaned very easily and is waterproof. Any spills or splashes will not damage or stain the vinyl floor.

What thickness will work best?

This is important to think about before choosing vinyl flooring. A thinner vinyl floor will be more cost effective- a good choice if you’re on a budget. However, a thicker vinyl floor will feel more comfortable. Thicker vinyl floors can help muffle noise/echo- so are good if you are in a busy household or property.

What style of vinyl flooring do I want?

This is entirely dependent on the interior design style of your property. Lighter coloured floors will help obscure dust and dirt. This means you won’t have to be vacuuming all the time. Darker floor styles (like grey slate) give a clean and modern look. Our vinyl floors also come in a range of tile styles. These give a classic, timeless look. Think about what room you want the vinyl in. Wood style vinyl looks great in kitchens and living rooms. Whilst tile style vinyl floors look great in bathrooms.

What is my budget?

This is an important factor to consider. With vinyl flooring, however, you’re in luck! Vinyl flooring is very cost effective, coming in sheets tailored to your floor size. It is a great option if you are on a budget. If you have a higher budget, consider looking into luxury vinyl tiling.

Hopefully, this helps give you a jumping off point for deciding whether vinyl is the right choice for you. At Tech Flooring, we want to help you make the best choice possible for your home.
