The Pros and Cons of Vinyl Flooring

Vinyl flooring is a popular choice for busy homes, offices and commercial spaces for a number of reasons. Here is a comprehensive list of pros and cons when it comes to vinyl flooring and vinyl flooring installation.

The Pros of Vinyl Flooring

The pros far outweigh the cons when it comes to vinyl flooring and its installation. Here is a list some of the reasons you should consider vinyl flooring installation in your home or office space.

Low Maintenance

Vinyl floors are exceedingly low maintenance because they take virtually no time and minimal effort to clean.

Water Proof

If properly installed by professional vinyl flooring installers your vinyl floor will be waterproof. Vinyl flooring is impervious to water penetration as vinyl flooring tiles are 100% plastic. This makes it the perfect flooring solution for bathrooms, laundries and kitchens.

Stain Resistant

Vinyl flooring tiles sport a clear wear layer on the surface which acts as a barrier against spill and stains.

Wide Range of Styles Available

Vinyl flooring tiles are available in a variety of textures and colours to suit any space’s interior decorating.


Vinyl flooring is exceedingly comfortable underfoot as it is generally softer than wood or tiles. Vinyl also doesn’t get as cold as other flooring options in the winter time.


Generally speaking, vinyl flooring tiles don’t exceed moderate cost levels. Even the most expensive vinyl options tally below other flooring options.


Vinyl flooring has unprecedented durability. When well maintained, vinyl flooring has been known to last up to twenty years. Because colour runs all the way through, vinyl tiles are less susceptible to scratches and scuffs that leave visible marks – thus making them looker new for longer.

Ease of Installation

With a dry and level subfloor vinyl flooring can be installed with little fuss and in little time.  Vinyl flooring installers from FLOORIN make this even more seamless.
