All About Vinyl Flooring

Posted by: David Lanni on October 5, 2022

Here at Poplar Carpets, we think Vinyl flooring is a fantastic choice and can be used in most rooms in your home. Read on to find out why we love it and why we think you should too!

Who wouldn't love something that is not only cost effective but feels warmer underfoot than tiles and can be purchased in a range of thicknesses to suit your home and your pocket?

What different looks can I get in vinyl flooring?

Make your home instasagrammable! (Is that a word? We're going with it anyway!)

Vinyl flooring can come in many many different styles, types, colour options and finishes. It can look like a natural wood floor or it can look like beautiful tiles so you can find desired ‘looks’ whatever they may be.

How long will vinyl floor last?

Vinyl floor is incredibly durable and scratch-resistant so is a perfect choice for high-traffic areas of your home. If installed and maintained correctly, it can last upwards of 10-20 years. Opt for a timeless classic and give longevity to your home.

Can you mop vinyl floor?

Vinyl floor is really easy to keep clean so is a perfect choice for pretty much any room in your home - who doesn't want to cut down on the housework!

A good sweep or vacuum, followed by a mop will keep it well maintained. It's possible to buy specific vinyl floor cleaning products but these are not always necessary and being consistent with the upkeep and the cleaning methods above should be just fine.

Is vinyl floor a good choice for bathrooms and kitchens?

It's possible to purchase a fully waterproof vinyl floor in as many styles, types and colour options as regular vinyl flooring. It will also make a far better floor covering for your bathroom or kitchen than say, engineered wood, which is easily damaged if its core gets wet. It really is an amazing choice for any room!

Are there any negatives to vinyl floor?

Vinyl flooring is made up of a design layer covered by a single wear layer. Depending on the quality of the vinyl this wear layer can sometimes get damaged. It is not possible to repair this kind of damage and may result in the whole floor, or section of flooring, being replaced. If you look after it though, this shouldn't be an issue.

Which Vinyl flooring do we have in stock at Poplar Carpets?

At Poplar Carpets we stock selected comfytex and comfytex deluxue ranges.

Comfytex is a tough and low-maintenance collection of vinyl flooring that's warm and comfortable underfoot. It also has the added benefit and comfort of felt backing.
