There are many types of flooring that can make house look beautiful, but in order to make a real design statement you need to make sure that the flooring also has a good design elements and is not just a bland covering. One type of flooring that has become popular in recent years is vinyl planks flooring, mainly because there are so many different types of designs that are available in this type of flooring and it is therefore suitable for many areas of the house, including the kitchen, the bathroom, and a lounge. This article will take a look at the various types of vinyl planks flooring and discuss some considerations that need to be borne in mind before choosing.
The first thing that needs to be thought about is what type of design you need for the room in question. For instance, if you are redesigning a bathroom you may want to go for something that is quite bright, and there are many different bright vinyl patterns available, and using just one of these can make a real difference to the design of the room. You want to make sure that the floor does not make it easy to skid, because this can be dangerous. However, many types of vinyl flooring are now available in nonskid versions, or nonslip versions.
Fitting vinyl planks flooring can also be a great protector of flooring that is beneath the vinyl itself. For instance perhaps you have a really old-fashioned oak flooring and you want to keep it in good condition. In this case you could fix some vinyl flooring above it simply to protect the surface of the floor beneath.
But the real reason for fitting this type of flooring is simply the wide range of patterns that are available. You can get patterns that range from old-fashioned laminate, right through to stone patterns such as granite and marble. If you’re looking for something to really make a difference to a room than this can be a really great choice. The great thing about it is that it is also much more expensive than many other types of flooring and can be easily installed.
