What Is Synthetic Flooring?

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Flooring

If you are in the market for new flooring, you have likely come across the term “synthetic floors.” Synthetic floor products are a combination of man-made substances and natural materials that produce a number of floor covering options. If you are working within a tight budget, and you do not want to sacrifice quality, synthetic flooring may be an ideal choice for you. Plus, you can purchase synthetic floors in a variety of styles, finishes, and forms, including planks, tiles, and sheets.

Benefits of Synthetic Floor Products

Often, synthetic floors are the last option considered by homeowners. However, there are many benefits to using this type of flooring as opposed to more expensive materials. Synthetic floors are easy to maintain because they usually do not require exclusive or expensive maintenance productions. In addition, quality products are both scratch- and stain-resistant. Plus, since they are super durable, they are practical for areas of the home that receive a lot of foot traffic.

Types of Synthetic Floors

Laminate

Laminate floors are one of the most popular types of synthetic floors. Laminate can simulate the look of natural stone and hardwood by using images of flooring types that are applied over a layer that derives from fiberboard and resin.

Vinyl

Vinyl is a less expensive and more flexible flooring option. It can be installed on any level of the home and is also ideal for high traffic areas and rooms such as the bathroom or kitchen since it is durable in wet areas. Plus, vinyl products have come a long way over the years. Many vinyl products closely resemble wood, cork, and mosaic tiles.

Linoleum

Linoleum is very similar to vinyl flooring. Like vinyl floors, it is affordable, durable, and easy to maintain. However, what makes linoleum flooring different from vinyl is that color is infused deep into a material, making it more resistant to scratches and dents.

Warranties

Much like more expensive flooring options, homeowners can also obtain warranties with synthetic flooring products. Reputable manufacturers cover their products for defects and fading.

Choosing Vinyl Works

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Vinyl

Question: I grew up with vinyl floors in the kitchen and I want to put vinyl in our new home, but I worry that it won’t look right with the other upscale options I have planned. Can I get my vinyl while making sure my kitchen still looks nice?

Answer: If you take a look at today’s vinyl, you will probably be pleasantly surprised. The designs are much more sophisticated than the vinyl of your childhood. Vinyl floors have grown up too, and you will find lovely options that mimic tile and wood floors beautifully.

Vinyl definitely provides more comfort for your feet. That’s because vinyl has built-in cushioning while tile and stone are very hard surfaces. This can become an issue for some people who prefer the softer option when they’re standing and cooking.

Cleaning convenience is another real advantage to a vinyl floor. Spills are no issue, and this particular design would hide most small spots until you could get to them. The neutral tone and inviting design of this floor would minimize any resale issues.

Another substantial advantage with vinyl is cost per square foot. Compared to tile or stone, vinyl’s price point means that you can choose one of the more expensive options and still probably stay well within your budget. You may even have extra money left to splurge somewhere else in your home.

As you make new home or renovation design choices, it’s important to remember that functionality is just as important as any other decision factor. Go ahead and get your vinyl floor and enjoy cooking on it every day!
