Typically, when you’re deciding which flooring to purchase for your home or property, your first point of call is researching its advantages and disadvantages.

Weighing up the pros and cons to any purchase for your home is extremely important but when it comes to flooring, something that will be prone to wear and tear over time, its essential you pick the right one.

Vinyl flooring comes with many benefits making it an easy choice when it comes to picking the perfect floor for your home. Although best suited in bathrooms and kitchens, Vinyl flooring adds the perfect finishing touch to any room.

So, what makes it so good?


The durability of Vinyl floor makes it a top pick for homeowners, compared to much more fragile materials, Vinyl has high resistance to cracks, breaks and dents, making it an excellent choice for rooms with heavy foot traffic.

If installed and maintained correctly, vinyl flooring has the ability to last upwards of 20 years. Keep in mind the quality of the flooring you purchase will directly reflect its durability.

Vinyl also has the ability to withstand moisture and humidity making it a number one choice for bathrooms.


Although we always recommend having your flooring installed by a professional, Vinyl flooring is probably the most user friendly if you are on a budget or want to get the job done yourself.

It is one of, if not the simplest of floors to install as it requires no bonding or gluing, no grouting, very minimal cutting and just snaps together itself. Our number one tip is ensuring the floor beneath your Vinyl is completely flat, if you begin to lay your flooring down on an uneven surface, you’ll run into problems further down the line.


The beauty of Vinyl flooring is that it can simulate the look of almost any material. Whether you’re looking to achieve the look of real stone floors or natural wooden floors, Vinyl can mimic its design and textures to look like the real deal except at a fraction of the price.

Of course, pricing depends on the quality of the material and how much of it you’ll need to fill your space, but as far as beautiful flooring on a budget, Vinyl is the one to consider.


Whether you’re cleaning up after children or four legged friends, Vinyl is a super easy material to clean and keeping up with the maintenance of it tends to be a breeze.

A quick sweep and a mop should have your floors shining like they are brand new. We always advise that you make sure you are using an approved Vinyl floor cleaner and a damp mop to lift dirt and stains as this will give you the best results. As easy as it is to maintain, ensure you aren’t neglecting it, any heavy grit or debris on your floor could lead to damage, so keeping on top of it is your best bet.
