At Floor Coverings International – serving the greater Flagstaff and Sedona, Arizona areas – we offer a wide variety of flooring options with great customer service. Sometimes we are asked to go into more details about certain flooring materials, and vinyl or even luxury vinyl tiles are just one example. To give you a more in-depth look we’re here to share three areas that could benefit from the use of vinyl flooring.
Mudroom & Laundry Room
Vinyl and luxury vinyl tiles are extremely water resistant so they are a good option in moisture prone areas such as a mudroom or laundry room. If the washer overflows or mud is brought in from dirty shoes, you won’t have to worry that you’ll have to replace your vinyl. Simply mopping up the excess water and dirt should do the trick. If your floor does end up becoming damaged, having vinyl tiles or planks can help as you can simply replace the damaged areas rather than your whole floor.
Basements often have different needs because this area tends to be more humid and have more moisture. This is why it is often not recommended to install solid hardwood in areas below-ground. Vinyl is a good option if you want the look of natural stone or wood, which would otherwise be unfeasible in the basement. In addition, it is very forgiving if you have an uneven underlayment or sub-floor. Vinyl can also act as an insulator to help keep your basement warm in the winter.
The kitchen is another ideal area to install vinyl. Vinyl and their luxury vinyl plank counterparts are coated with a tough finish and protective layer to help protect against scuffs and stains. This makes vinyl floors ideal in the kitchen or even other areas of high traffic. If food is spilled on floors, simply wipe up the area with a mop or rag. Luxury vinyl tile can be vacuumed, swept, or mopped, making it an ideal flooring material for busy homes and families. Advancements in the production of luxury vinyl make the materials even more realistic to the look and feel of other flooring materials such as hardwood or tile.
Vinyl and luxury vinyl tile are a great option to consider for your home remodel.
