Change the look of your home

Every once in a while we want to change the look of your home. The problem with re-decorating your home is that you are faced with expensive decisions that need to be made – from paint to flooring. The biggest concern is making sure that you have the right flooring in your home. The flooring must look good but be practical. The most obvious answer to flooring is tiles – easy to clean and maintain. Have you ever given a thought to vinyl planks? After all, retro is in!

So what are the pros and cons of having vinyl planks installed? Most of us equate the word vinyl with tacky and old. This is not an uncommon response, the fact of the matter is vinyl planks have a bit of a stigma attached to them. The question is does their reputation really proceed them? In most cases it does, but this is not necessarily because they are a bad choice. There are many great advantages to having vinyl planks installed at your home but first you should be made aware of the disadvantages:

They are not ecological
They are difficult to repair
Low quality vinyl tends to yellow over time

These disadvantages although annoying are not necessarily a good enough reason to completely discard the idea of getting vinyl planks. There are a number of advantages to having them installed in your home, that need to be considered too before you can make your final decision.
How has vinyl flooring changed over time?

Inexpensive: even if you choose to get the highest quality vinyl flooring it is still cheaper than getting wood or stone tiles installed. If you are in the middle of an entire home make over than saving money wherever possible is important. 

Design: there are many different designs that can be created with these tiles. There are a number of different pattern and colour options. This will certainly help to make sure you have a unique floor in your home.

Low maintenance: there is nothing more frustrating than having to spend hours cleaning the home. With the addition of vinyl planks your cleaning time will be cut in half as they are easy to maintain. A quick sweep and mop is all they need.

Water resistant: damp is often a huge problem within the home. High quality vinyl planks are impervious to water penetration when installed properly. Which is important to remember when re-tiling your kitchen or bathroom.

If you are still not convinced that vinyl planks are the right solution for your home than you may need to go into a show room and see what your different options are.
