Flooring is something that is mostly ignored during a home redesign or in new construction. We tend to forget that a great floor can elevate your overall living experience. Without a great floor, any amount spent on the interiors would end up on the dull side.
Luxury vinyl flooring is one of the most sought and resilient forms of flooring solution. The flooring industry likes it because it is low maintenance, water-resistant, durable, and economical. However, like everything else, even luxury vinyl flooring has some pros and cons.
In this post, we will help you understand the pros and cons.
Pros of Luxury Vinyl Flooring
Vinyl Floors Can Be Easily Installed
Vinyl flooring is slowly progressing towards being more DIY friendly. Tiles and planks do not need any sawing or hammering unlike the vinyl sheets of the past. Most brands offer vinyl floors with the self-adhesive option that can be installed by just removing the back layer. There are vinyl tiles and vinyl planks that come with the click n lock technology (exclusively for Welspun tiles) which does not require any sort of gluing as well.
Luxury Vinyl Flooring is Affordable
Installing luxury vinyl flooring is much more economical when you compare it with traditional wooden floors or marble and granite floors. There are additional savings when you consider the low maintenance requirements, unlike the traditional floors.
Vinyl Floors Are Beautiful
You will find quite unusual patterns and textures with luxury vinyl flooring today. Another added advantage is that you will get the wooden finish, marble finish, and granite finish without the hassle of installing them or their heavy maintenance.
Vinyl Flooring is Easy to Maintain
Luxury vinyl flooring has a protective wear layer that does not require any waxing and polishing unlike marble or granite floors. Simple sweeping and mopping can do the work for you.
Cons of Luxury Vinyl Flooring
Vinyl Can Be Of Inconsistent Quality
Even though we are talking about luxury vinyl floors, the quality does vary across brands. With so many varieties available in the market, it’s important to choose the right kind in terms of thickness, quality of material used & most importantly the requirement to achieve a perfect finish.
Some Types of Luxury Vinyl Flooring May Be Difficult to Remove
The no-adhesive vinyl floors are fairly easy to remove as compared to the ones that are glued to the floor. A good strategy to remove such floors would be to cut them down into strips before you start removing them.
Welspun Has A Better Solution
