5 Reasons why we LOVE vinyl flooring and can’t get enough of it !

People choose VINYL for many reasons, some right, some not so right.

There are many types of vinyl flooring like vinyl sheets, luxury vinyl tiles (LVT ) and vinyl composition tiles (VCT).

We hope this article can shed some light on this popular flooring by sharing 5 common reasons why VINYL is loved by many.

1. Anti-bacterial

Almost all vinyl by nature does not promote the growth of bacterial. Although it does not promote, it does not mean that there will be no bacteria on the surfaces! It is just that the bacteria will not grow or multiply but it is still there. However, vinyl is still considered as a hygienic floor and vinyl sheets in roll form that has minimal joints are widely used in healthcare, childcare and elderly care settings.

2. Water-resistant

Singapore is a very humid country and the humidity can causes many problems for floors like laminated wood, natural wood and even ceramics. Vinyl is almost water proof and innate to water or moisture. Although it has this advantage, care has to taken as some vinyl are installed with adhesive which is not water resistant. Water that is trapped beneath the vinyl may not damage the vinyl but it can cause unpleasant smell or growth of bacteria.

Endless and realistic designs is another great advantage of vinyl.

Vinyl can come in woodgrain, solid colour, stone, terazzo and marble. Custom vinyl can even be made with a photo or logo of your choice !

3. Limitless designs

4. Durability

Vinyl has very a hard-wearing nature. Made to last, vinyl surfaces are specially treated to withstand the daily beating and more. 

LVT comes with a very tough, clear wear-layer on the top. Being a clear layer, it hides scratches well.
