What is vinyl flooring?
Enjoying a new lease on life, today’s luxury vinyl flooring is made from 100 percent synthetic material which is water and stain resistant. The range of vinyl flooring products are a popular choice for use in kitchens and bathrooms due to being impervious to water and highly durable.
While flexible vinyl sheeting and vinyl tiles were in vogue for many years and are also contemporary options in a range of fabulous natural looks, vinyl plank flooring is quickly becoming the go-to product for use throughout the home due to its affordability and realistic timber-look finish.
What are the pros and cons of vinyl flooring?
Today’s interior style trends mean that vinyl planks are a popular flooring option offering the visual appeal of trending timber floating floors for a fraction of the cost. The photographic finishes on vinyl planks are realistic and the construction is highly durable. The result is a stylish, stain resistant and easily cleaned floor which is extremely affordable to the budget-conscious family.
Luxury vinyl sheets also offer a seamless stone-effect design as an alternative to the timber-look finish as well as the look of a tiled floor. This versatile flooring product has wide appeal for being easy to install and its ability to deliver a range of designer looks while also being super budget-friendly.
While the pros far outweigh the cons, vinyl flooring isn’t the most environmentally-friendly flooring option on the market. Constructed from 100 percent synthetic materials, vinyl is not a biodegradable product. In addition, some vinyls may not have a surface layer tough enough to withstand very heavy or sharp objects.

Your local Carpet Court store will advise you whether underlay is needed for the luxury vinyl floor you choose. It is important to lay your vinyl flooring product in strict accordance with the manufacturer’s installation guidelines.
