Why vinyl flooring is great for busy families

Keeping on top of everything in a busy household isn’t easy for anyone. Juggling work, children, pets, shopping and everything else modern life has to through at you can be hard. This can often mean things around the house get left until weekends or even holiday time when all you want to do is relax.

Flooring is something which is often forgotten about when you move into a house, or if you’ve lived in the same home for a while. Only when it really needs replacing or needs a deep clean does it receive a lot of attention. This is understandable with everything else going on in our lives. There are some flooring options though which make it easy to manage alongside everyday busy lives. One of the best options available is vinyl flooring. In this post, we’re going to highlight some of the benefits of vinyl tile flooring and why it’s great for busy families.

It's quick and easy to clean 
Cleaning the floors at home can be a huge task. With carpets, for example, while they not only require regular vacuuming but to clean them thoroughly, you need a carpet cleaning machine. Renting one of these machines and then spending multiple days cleaning the carpets around your home is not a fun way to spend any time away from work, especially when you already have other things to do with your family.

Vinyl flooring, on the other hand, is far easier to clean. After a simple brush, it can be cleaned quickly and easily without renting any specialist machinery. For a busy family, this is useful, especially for areas of your home which are close to the outside. Entrance hallways at your front door or in from the garden can often get muddy with people’s shoes bringing in dirt from outside. With vinyl, it’s much easier to keep these areas clean than with other flooring options.

It's durable so won’t need to be replaced 
Along with cleaning, the other main issue with flooring at home is how long it will last and look its best. With people moving around your home every day, including kids and maybe pets, your flooring can take a real beating, particularly in high traffic areas. Vinyl flooring is produced by joining combining layers, including strong protective coatings on top. This makes vinyl flooring highly durable and a perfect choice for high traffic areas.

This is also useful when dealing with accidents. As we all know with children, it’s easy for them to drop some food or a drink. With certain types of flooring such as carpet or hardwood, this can leave stains which are very difficult to get out. Vinyl, on the other hand, is water and stain resistant, making it an excellent choice for rooms like the kitchen.

It looks great in lots of different rooms 
While the kitchen is one of the most popular rooms to have luxury vinyl flooring installed in, the range of design options available means it can be installed throughout the home. Because of the water resistant nature of the flooring, bathrooms are also a really popular room for vinyl. Not only because of their durability, but vinyl flooring is excellent when paired with underfloor heating. In bathrooms, underfloor heating is popular as it helps to evenly heat the room which most people use first thing in the morning.

As mentioned, vinyl comes in a variety of styles such as wood and stone, which allows you to get creative with it around your home. Along with the range of finishes, there is a wide variety of laying patterns to create different designs based on your taste. Traditional flooring styles such as parquet are great, and if you’re looking for a classic flooring finish in your bedroom, this can work really well. 

Vinyl is a great option for busy families, along with the benefits listed above, it is quick to install and can work with a variety of interior design styles. Family homes are always going to be busy places with lots going on, people coming and going, and your floor needs to be able to stand up to heavy daily use. Vinyl not only provides you with durability and style but a comfortable floor that is easy to clean and maintain. Some other flooring options won’t last as long and will require far more work to keep looking their best.
