Vinyl flooring has come a long way. I don’t know about you, but when I used to hear “vinyl”, I pictured a giant roll of flooring that was white so shiny that you can almost see your reflection in it. Remember? While that does still exist, there are so many more affordable, beautiful options out there to make your space feel like home.
Then there’s the traditional hardwood option. If you want a floor that looks like wood, choose hardwood flooring, right? Not necessarily! While hardwood flooring has also advanced in many ways over the past couple of decades, there are just as many vinyl options that look like wood, these days. That can be a huge benefit to your living space and your pocketbook.
So, what should you consider when you’re in the market for flooring?
● Vinyl is known for its durability in high traffic areas. It can take a beating without showing wear. Hardwood, on the other hand, is more prone to scratches, dents, scuffs, etc. It is wood, after all.
● Design. Again, with the developments that have taken place in the world of vinyl flooring, it can be nearly impossible to visually tell the difference between vinyl and hardwood.
● Cost. Chances are, if you’re in the midst of a renovation, you’re witnessing the cost climb and you dream about dollar signs at night. Vinyl is considerably less expensive than hardwood flooring, which can help you rest a bit easier.
● Overall wear. Hardwood is susceptible to damage due to moisture – that means humidity in the air too. Ever look at a curved piece of wood and wonder how in the world it ended up like that? Not something you’ll probably want to ponder when it comes to a piece of your floor. Vinyl, on the other hand, is waterproof.
