What are vinyl flooring tiles?

Vinyl flooring is made from a type of finished flooring made of polyvinyl chloride (PVC), formed into sheets or tiles through heat and pressure. They can be made to have the realistic look of almost any kind of material, from ceramic to wood, with a variety of finishes available. Luxury vinyl tiles are so called because they have a very realistic appearance of natural materials, and are often specially treated to be scuff- and scratch-resistant. 

Why choose vinyl flooring?

Vinyl floor tiles are suitable for any areas of the home, and they're popular because they're affordable and easy to clean and maintain. They're particularly suited to rooms where there are significant traces of moisture and temperature fluctuations, such as bathroom, kitchens, and shower rooms.

They're also simple to install, with no need for glue or nails – it's easy to do yourself, or alternatively our specialist fitters will be happy to do it for you. 

What types of vinyl tiles are there?

Vinyl tiles come in all kinds of lifelike patterns and effects. They can have the appearance of high-quality ceramics or stone, ideal for a kitchen or bathroom, or luxurious hardwood for a living room. This makes them extremely versatile – even if you want a range of different textures in your home, you can have them all with luxury vinyl tiles.

How long does vinyl flooring last?

Depending on how much use it gets, vinyl flooring tends to last between around 10 to 20 years before it needs to be replaced, although a well-installed and well-maintained floor can last much longer than this. It's very moisture-resistant, so there's no need to worry about damp conditions reducing the life of your vinyl floor. 

Vinyl flooring pros and cons

The main selling points of vinyl flooring are that it's inexpensive, very realistic-looking (especially if you choose luxury vinyl flooring) are really easy to maintain – it doesn't need more than a mop or sweep every so often. It's also a great choice for bathrooms and kitchens due to its water resistance.

Compared to more expensive options like engineered wood, vinyl flooring isn't quite as long-lasting, and despite its convincing appearance, some people may prefer to have the real thing. It can also be prone to tearing if a sharp object is dropped on it or heavy furniture is moved around on it.
