Why Vinyl Flooring Should Be On Your Remodeling ChecklistJ&J Construction of Illinois, Inc.
If you were prepared to skip over vinyl flooring for your next renovation project, you’re in for some pleasant surprises. Resilient vinyl floors have been garnering fans right and left. It’s the most popular flooring trend right now – for a lot of reasons. At J&J Construction, we’ve found that it’s just the thing for Chicagoland homes, in particular (more on that in a moment!). Here’s the story on why it’s such a great addition to so many different rooms and lifestyles.
If your idea of vinyl floors still looks like big patterns, colors like Harvest Gold, or reminds you of the house you grew up in – it’s definitely time to look at the new styles. Manufacturers today can combine textures and printing in amazing ways. Just take a look at that wood plank flooring above, with those rustic textures and hints of leftover blue paint. Great use of salvaged wood, right? Guess again! It’s just one example of vinyl flooring’s new versatility.
Luxury vinyl floors can look just like marble, barn wood, tile, and stone. The color range and looks cover virtually any flooring looks and colors you can imagine. What’s more – they’re so comfortable underfoot!
The incredible range of looks means that you can achieve interior style goals you’d never considered. Even the rough-cut plank flooring above is resilient vinyl, and you’ll never have to worry about little feet picking up splinters.
The durability is also top-notch. Premium floors like this can handle all kinds of roughhousing – from kids to pets. If you’re planning on a sunroom or another space that opens directly to the outside, your worries about scuffs and scratches are minimized. So, go ahead and try out the ideas you’ve been dreaming about! The look of marble floors or rustic wood can go anywhere, now!
Speaking of high traffic areas – these new vinyl floors are so easy to care for. No special treatment is needed – manufacturers recommend just a bit of common sense cleaning after they’re installed. A quick sweep to clean up debris, a spritz of cleaners on spills, and dry mopping are really all they need to stay looking great.
The next time your dog runs in straight from the backyard after a rain, or you spill a glass of wine – it’s just a small cleanup. In this case, vinyl flooring does a lot of the work for you – and just looks nice while it does it.
Speaking of hard work on the down-low: resilient vinyl floors have a lot of hidden qualities you’ll like. We can install heated floors beneath them – making them a fabulous choice for our cooler Chicago days and nights. They can make three-season rooms and sunrooms even more wonderful – or warm up your bathrooms.
With their sound-absorbing qualities, they’re also a great choice for busy households and open floor plans. And their construction means that they’re waterproof and mildew-resistant. Vinyl flooring is an excellent choice for rooms that are utilitarian, but still deserve great style: such as mudrooms, laundry areas, and even basements.
