Is Vinyl Plank Flooring Really as Good as People Say it is?


Are you looking to transform your house to put it on the market, or maybe you’re renovating it to enhance the aesthetic of the space you spend most of your time? Whatever the case, renovating your floor with vinyl plank flooring is one of the easiest home improvements that make a great deal of difference.

By now, you’ve probably heard praise being showered on vinyl plank flooring, but is this type of flooring really as good as people say it is? Well, the following are the features that make vinyl plank flooring a preferred choice amongst homeowners and renovators alike:

Endless Variety

It’s simply amazing how much variety there is out there in the world of vinyl plank flooring. While choices are vast, types of vinyl plank flooring can be categorized into three main categories: Luxury vinyl, waterproof vinyl, and rigid core vinyl. With so many different options to choose from, it’s easy to find vinyl that matches the rest of the room.

Easy to Clean and Maintain

With many other available flooring options, you have to seal, wax, or refinish them to keep them looking as good as new. With vinyl plank flooring, you don’t need to carry out intense maintenance to keep it in pristine condition. Other than sweeping, vacuuming, or washing your vinyl flooring with soap and water, there’s absolutely no other maintenance required.

Versatile and Durable

Unlike wood that cannot be laid in areas with moisture, vinyl plank can be laid in water-prone areas like the kitchen, bathroom, or even mudroom. If you have kids and pets that cause a ruckus in the house, you can opt for rigid core vinyl planks as they are scratch-proof and can’t suffer any kind of damage that’s going to make it unattractive. The versatility and durability of vinyl plank flooring makes it a long-term investment that’ll enable you to enjoy incredible savings in the long-run.

Warm and Comfortable

Another area in which vinyl plank doesn’t get the credit it deserves is how it’s capable of staying at room temperature. Once you install it, you will no longer have to worry about your floor sending chills throughout your body when you step on the floor.
