The Hottest New Flooring

Flooring is a big deal in a home when it comes to buying or selling. Not only does it make a huge impact on the visual appeal on the home, it also varies greatly in terms of care and durability. Personal issues play a part as well – some people can’t handle the allergens that carpet seems to attract. Trendiness is overall the biggest driver – who can forget the lime green shag carpet of the 1970s? Fortunately, there are many more choices available today, and most are pleasing to the eye. What most people are looking for is something durable, attractive, easy to clean, and affordable. While quite a few types of flooring fit the bill, it seems that there’s a particular type of flooring that is most popular right now – Waterproof Vinyl flooring!

Wait. Vinyl? Like the stuff in your grandma’s kitchen in 1990? Yes. But there’s a few caveats.

 Why Vinyl Is The Hottest New Flooring

  • The price is right
  • It’s incredibly realistic looking
  • Fantastically Durable
  • 100% Waterproof
  • Low maintenance

The price is right because it’s synthetic – it’s not the real deal, so it’s mass produced. When you’re looking to put flooring down in an entire home, this amounts to thousands of dollars in savings.

The wood-look of synthetic vinyl is so convincing that you probably won’t believe it’s not wood or at lest laminate. The visual accuracy of depiction of real wood is incredible now and will increase as technology increases, so this trend will not go away any time soon.

It’s extremely durable. It won’t dent if you drop something heavy on it. It won’t crack, tear, or stain from everyday issues that homeowners encounter. That means you won’t have to replace it in the near future, saving you more money. That’s especially a delight for those who own pets or who have small children!

It’s 100% waterproof. What’s not to love? Splash some water out of the shower? No problem. Spill a glass of tea? No problem. It’s not going to stain or warp or rot or mildew. Just wipe It up, and you don’t have to hurry.

Low-maintenance is the best part of anything. You literally just need to wipe it down with a damp mop or sponge if it’s got dirt of dust on it. No specialty cleaners, no vacuums to drag out, nothing to rent. Sounds like a dream to us!
