• Vinyl Flooring in Your Kitchen - Pros and Cons

    The one area of your home that has more traffic going through it than anywhere else is the kitchen. A kitchen needs extra-sturdy floors to take on lots of foot traffic. Vinyl flooring has been trending recently and is a great option for your kitchen floor.

    Vinyl tiles, which are made up of synthetic plastic, are an amazing option for floors in your kitchen because they are durable, easy to install, and cheaper compared to other flooring options. Vinyl floors come in sheets or tiles, making it easy to install and remove, if necessary. There are also some vinyl tiles that come with self-adhesive options. Vinyl floors come in different designs and textures, including myriad effects that mimic the look of stone or wood. Vinyl floors are easy to clean and do not collect dust or allergens, making it a great option if you have kids and pets. Vinyl tiles feel softer on your feet than traditional tiles. Glass and other fragile items may not break upon falling on vinyl tiles. Vinyl floors can last up to 15 or 20 years.

    The sub-floor below needs to be plain and polished so that the vinyl tiles or sheets on top sit perfectly. Also, while vinyl floors can take a lot of foot traffic in the kitchen, dropping and moving sharp or heavy objects can ruin it. Some vinyl floors may emit volatile compounds that your kids could be allergic to. Durability may also be a downside for you as you might need to stick with the same design for years which can be boring for some.

    All in all, vinyl tiles are an outstanding option for your kitchen because of the durability, easy cleanup and the variety of faux-looking options, colors and textures. Vinyl floors are admired by not only homemakers but interior designers as well.
