Today, vinyl flooring is more popular than ever. It used to be that vinyl was just the cheap way to cover a kitchen or bathroom floor, but with many modern day advancements in technology, more people are installing the new generation vinyl flooring in many high end homes and commercial settings. Old cheap vinyl floors were known to seperate, crack, and wear out in just a few short years. Often you would see old vinyl floors peel back from the wall and curl up around the edges. Vinyl flooring is now made to look more realistic and is constructed with durable materials, which allow it to remain beautiful and withstand years of heavy traffic. There are hundreds of different colors, patterns, and styles of vinyl flooring today. Some are made to look like natural stone or slate tile, but because the floor is made of vinyl, you do not have to worry about it chipping or cracking if a dish falls on it. Vinyl is also now made to look like beautiful hardwood flooring, but since it is vinyl and not real hardwood, you will never need to refinish it to keep in looking pretty and luxurious. In addition, it costs far less money and will never discolor, fade, or splinter like hardwood floors may tend to do over the years. Vinyl is also much more water resistant than hardwood or laminate flooring when used in a kitchen, bathroom, or finished basement.
No other floor covering category offers the variety of colors and pattern styles as vinyl flooring! Thanks to so many great advancements in styling and technology, today's vinyl flooring is greatly improved. The unique manufacturing processes used today can replicate the look and textures of real ceramic tile, stone and wood grains. These processes create a resilient vinyl floor that is more tear and stain resistant. This new generation of vinyl floors has changed forever the way we think of vinyl flooring.
