At Bigelow, we love vinyl flooring! No matter what kind of style of floor you’re looking for, vinyl is almost always the perfect option. And if you’re feeling a little overwhelmed by the choices out there, here are a couple of reasons why you might want to choose vinyl for your next flooring renovation.
Your options are (almost) endless
There are three main types of vinyl flooring: sheet vinyl, plank and vinyl tile. Sheets are more water resistant because there are fewer gaps for water to get through, and tend to be more durable. Vinyl tiles and planks are still a durable flooring option, however. Outside of these three choices, the options for style, colour and use are far-reaching. Vinyl tile can mimic more expensive flooring options like ceramic and hardwood, while providing more durability.
You can use it almost anywhere
Need a new kitchen floor? How about a new floor in your bathroom, or even your living room? Because of vinyl flooring’s versatility, it has a ton of applications. It’s an excellent choice for high traffic areas like hallways and stairs because it’s so durable. It’s also comfortable on your feet and easy to clean, making it ideal for kitchens, and can even help with noise reduction in busy homes.
Installation is quick and easy
After you’ve chosen your new floor, the last thing you want to do is to wait weeks in a home mid-renovation while your floor is installed. Vinyl is easy to install – both in sheets and in tiles. While it’s easy to install by yourself, having a flooring professional do the installation means you can be sure that the underlayers are right for your new floor. Vinyl floors need to be installed on a smooth surface, or imperfections in the subfloor can show through once it’s installed.
Vinyl flooring is ideal for both commercial and residential flooring applications. Browse our selection online!
