Vinyl Flooring – Everything You Need to Know

Everything You Need to Know About Vinyl Flooring

Vinyl flooring is becoming more popular because you have options beyond sheet vinyl and tile vinyl floors. Vinyl flooring is inexpensive, versatile and easy to clean and maintain. There is an excellent variety of choices with vinyl flooring imitating tile, stone and hardwood floors. For example, you can purchase vinyl plank flooring that replicates hardwood without the hardwood maintenance.

Not only are there quite a few diverse vinyl floor styles to select from, but there are several thicknesses and wear layer types. Not sure what type is most practical in what room of your home? Vinyl is an excellent choice in just about every room of your home because of its water resistance, simple upkeep and versatility.


Vinyl's versatility can be used to create a cozy look, such as hardwood planks. The bedroom is also a room you will frequently be barefoot in, so you want it to be comfortable.

Living Room

Vinyl is a reasonably priced way to achieve a sophisticated look with your décor. The vinyl flooring you select can resemble more expensive flooring like hardwood or stone.


Vinyl flooring is most popular in the kitchen because of its durability, moisture resistance, easy maintenance and comfort while standing. The holidays won't conclude with aching feet and joints or a dirty floor that's difficult to clean.


Vinyl is an excellent choice in the bathroom for the same reasons; it's fantastic in the kitchen. Water is an easy clean up without the worry of a dammaged floor.

Laundry & Utility Rooms

Vinyl makes an excellent choice for laundry and utility rooms because of its ability to stand up to just about anything.

Pay attention if it says 100% waterproof versus water-resistant. Flooring that is waterproof means that it can withstand humidity, flooding or any amount of water without damaging the floor. Water-resistant means it can resist the penetration of water to some degree, but not entirely. Many luxury vinyl flooring choices, like Shaw Floorte, CORETec and Karndean DesignFlooring are waterproof.
