What is Vinyl Flooring?

Vinyl flooring has come a long way since it was first developed decades ago. It is a fantastic flooring option that can be installed easily in your domestic or commercial property. Vinyl flooring installation is simple, as it is glued to your concrete floor, but may require an underlay or other ground preparation depending on what you are replacing. ​Whether you’re looking to install vinyl flooring yourself or have one of our experts complete your install, our products are an economical and stylish choice. Vinyl flooring is perfect for wet areas like bathrooms or open porticos and our vinyl flooring comes in a range of styles and colours to suit your home or workspace.

What are the benefits of vinyl flooring?

How do you decide if vinyl flooring is the perfect choice for you? Vinyl flooring is versatile, affordable and has a range of benefits that are not available in other flooring options such as timber, laminate or tiles. Check out the advantages of vinyl flooring below.

Simple installation: The key to successfully installing vinyl flooring is to ensure the surface underneath is smooth and without any imperfections. Vinyl planks are either click-together or glue down, allowing you to install them yourself or have one of our expert Floorworld installers can assist you with your installation. Either way, installing vinyl plank flooring is a lot easier than installing most types of wood flooring.

Extensive design options: Our vinyl flooring ranges come in a wide range of colours, patterns and imitation wood grains. If you have a particular style in your domestic or commercial property, we will have a vinyl flooring design to suit you at a fraction of the cost of traditional hardwood flooring. Vinyl flooring often looks identical to solid timber flooring and it can be difficult to distinguish between the two. Vinyl flooring can also replicate natural stone and ceramic tiles.

Low maintenance: Vinyl flooring requires the least amount of maintenance out of all flooring types. It should be regularly cleaned but you don’t need to stick to a strict schedule or use any expensive speciality products. Vinyl is water-resistant so can be mopped without fear of warping and can be cleaned with detergents and disinfectants without fear of damaging the floor. An added bonus is that vinyl floors are beneficial for asthma and allergy sufferers, as vinyl doesn’t collect dust or particles like carpet and some timbers do.

DurabilityVinyl flooring is durable and resilient due to its structure. It is perfect for families with children, pets and high traffic areas as it can’t easily be scratched or damaged. If there will be a lot of movement in your domestic or commercial property, vinyl may be the perfect choice for you.

Versatility: Vinyl flooring is not affected by heat or humidity so it stands up to the temperature changes of the hot Australian summer and cold winter. Vinyl flooring has water-resistant and waterproof options so it can be used in any room of your property, including your laundry or bathrooms. Vinyl plank is also impenetrable by termites, so you can even put it outside.
