What is vinyl flooring?

Vinyl flooring has been around since the 19th Century and continues to be a popular choice of flooring today. But what is it and where did it come from? Whether you are looking for 2.5 mm vinyl plank flooring or something a little heavier, we have some great suggestions for you.

History

Vinyl flooring originally began as linoleum (or lino) flooring. Linoleum was first created using linseed oil to create a hard, durable surface. As it evolved and changed, synthetic elements were mixed with the natural ones to give the flooring more stability and style. It was widely used in the 1800s all the way through to the 1950s. However, vinyl was discovered in 1920s and, whilst having almost identical properties to linoleum, it was completely synthetic. It is made of PVC and was more durable than linoleum. In the 1970’s, the first vinyl plank was created. This was a process where vinyl was cut into strips/planks and laid out in the style of traditional wooden flooring. This made the floors more realistic and stylish, giving rise to their popularity.

Uses

These days, vinyl has come on leaps and bounds and is durable, 100% waterproof and very realistic. It’s a great option for bathrooms as it is so durable and water resistant. It’s also a fantastic option for high foot-traffic areas like hallways and kitchens. The advancements in LVT (Luxury Vinyl Tiling) means it can be embossed to have grooves just like real wood or stone! Which pretty much covers all vinyl flooring. Browse our website today to find out how you can install some luxury vinyl tiling in your home.

Vinyl flooring comes in a wide range of styles and so can suit any home. Another benefit of vinyl flooring is that it can muffle noise, making it a good option for noisy areas like hallways and kitchens. It is easy to install and comes in different thicknesses, making it a fuss-free choice. Because of its waterproof properties, vinyl is low maintenance and won’t need mopping or hoovering as much as other floorings.
