4 reasons why we love vinyl flooring

Flexible, attractive and inexpensive, vinyl flooring is a fantastic flooring option for any home or business. Read on to find out why this simple flooring material is proving to be so popular among our customers at Carpet Barn, the South’s leading flooring experts.

Vinyl is easy to care for

Vinyl flooring is very easy to maintain and keep looking its best. All you need to do is sweep any dirt and debris off the surface and run a damp mop or cloth over it to remove more stubborn grime. What’s more, thanks to its smooth surface, vinyl is waterproof and stain resistant, perfect for use in bathrooms and kitchens.

You can choose from a range of finishes

Possibly one of the most surprising things about vinyl is the sheer range of patterns and finishes available. From wooden floorboards and marble to granite stone and patterned tiles, at Carpet Barn we have hundreds of different vinyl effects available to ensure that no matter what vision you had for the look and style of your home, you’ll find the perfect match with our vinyl flooring options.

Excellent usability all year round

Vinyl tends to be fairly soft underfoot, especially if you choose a padded underlay, and, unlike real ceramic tiles, stone and wood floors, doesn’t get cold in winter. Having said this, it does provide a cool alternative to carpet in the warmer summer months as it doesn’t trap heat like carpet can.

It’s an affordable flooring option

Even the highest quality vinyl flooring is often much more economical than the traditionally premium flooring options such as stone and solid wood. This means that you can still achieve a high end look for your home or office without having to pay through the roof for it.

Vinyl can last for decades

One of the main reasons so many people choose vinyl flooring is the sheer longevity of the material. When properly installed and maintained (which, as already mentioned, is easy to do), it can last decades, providing you with more savings long-term as it won’t need to be replaced as often as other types of flooring.
