There’s a wide range of options out there when it comes to choosing flooring for your home, including staples like carpet or hardwood floors. Vinyl flooring is another option that’s seen a resurgence in recent years and it has many benefits for your home. This type of flooring has been around since the 1930s, but recent advancements have seen an increase in quality.

If you’re thinking about updating your flooring and aren’t sure which option to choose, see below for just four great reasons to choose vinyl flooring for your home.

It’s versatile

Vinyl flooring is available in a huge range of pattern and colour options, making it highly versatile. Vinyl tiles can also mimic hardwood or stone flooring, so you can enjoy a certain aesthetic look with the benefits of a vinyl finish. It’s also a great option if you’re on a budget and can’t afford a solid wood or stone floor.

Easy to clean

Vinyl flooring is waterproof, hygienic and stain-resistant, making it very easy to clean. Sweep regularly to remove buildups of dirt and debris and then mop with a specialist vinyl cleaner to keep your floors looking their best. Vinyl flooring also has non-allergenic properties, so it’s a great alternative to carpet for anyone with asthma or pet allergies.


Vinyl flooring is incredibly durable, so it’s a smart choice for high traffic areas like the hall or kitchen. Most vinyl flooring comes with a protective top layer to help it last longer and it also improves its resistance to scratches and dents. Vinyl flooring can also contract and expand which helps its longevity and makes it more resistant to general wear and tear.

Easy to install

This type of flooring comes in sheets, tiles or planks and is very quick and easy to install. In some cases, the flooring needs to be glued down, or the sheets can simply be clicked together into place. Either method is very low maintenance and much easier to install than alternatives like carpet or hardwood flooring.
