If you are looking to decorate your home and also going to change the flooring at the same time, you may wish to consider vinyl flooring for specific rooms in your house. Vinyl floors are easy to maintain and are perfect for areas of your home which receive a high amount of foot traffic. You can get some excellent tips on keeping vinyl floors and also see how easy they are to clean on various websites online, and below are some of the pros and cons of installing vinyl flooring in your home. 

The Advantages Of Vinyl Flooring
There are many advantages to vinyl flooring that you will want to consider before making your choice of which material to use in your home. 

-Super Low Maintenance – Vinyl floors are very easy to keep clean and tidy, and a quick sweep of the floor when they are dry followed by cleaning with a mop will have your floors sparkling in no time at all. 

-Hard Wearing – When you install this type of flooring material you have the benefit of one of the most durable floor coverings available other than stone. As with many other things the quality can vary, so it is worth investing a little extra and making sure you get a material that is of the best quality and Market Timbers offer high-quality vinyl flooring in Melbourne and surrounding areas.

-Water & Stain Resistant – One of the most favourite features of this type of floor covering is that it is resistant to both water, and also stains. With the correct maintenance, your floor will remain looking as good as it did the day it was laid. If you do get some wear and tear and have installed vinyl tiles, you can easily replace these without having to replace the entire floor. 

-Cheap And Readily Available – You can find vinyl flooring available from many retailers, and the quality can vary. However, good quality vinyl flooring is still relatively cheap when compared to other options such as engineered wooden floors.

The Disadvantages Of Vinyl Flooring
There are also some disadvantages to installing vinyl floors in your home such as; 
-Uneven Floor Surfaces – You cannot install this type of flooring on an uneven surface as pockets of air will show and over time you will get uneven wear. It would be best if you can hire a professional to have it installed rather than doing it on your own. 

-Yellows With Age – You can find that vinyl flooring over time will discolour with age and can often turn a yellowish colour, which is due to the chemicals used in their production. This would usually happen when the vinyl flooring lacked proper maintenance. 

These are just a few of the pros and cons of vinyl flooring, and you can find others when you look on the internet. If you are looking for a good quality but an affordable option for your home, then vinyl flooring may just be what you have been looking for!
