Sometimes in a busy life, you need to get results fast. But, you also want to have those results last a long time, too. In the world of flooring, there are new technologies developing to help you get that balance. And one great example is the development of luxury vinyl tile. Recently, I wrote about 3 easy flooring options out-of-the-box, and included vinyl tile in that line-up. But here, let’s talk about this innovative flooring option in more detail.
Just to underscore a point, modern vinyl tile and planks are not to be confused with tacky, glue-down linoleum that sticks to your subfloor and is messy to remove later. To back that up, and offer even more information about why you might want to consider luxury vinyl floors as your out-of-the-box, here are 5 reasons to buy luxury vinyl tile and vinyl plank flooring.
So, without further ado, 5 of the best reasons to buy vinyl flooring are:
1. No Waiting
One of the things about quality flooring is that you often can’t take it out of its packaging and lay it on your floor right away. With wood flooring, you’ve got to let it get used to it’s new environment, and let the boards acclimate. With vinyl tile, you don’t have to wait. You can start on transforming your space with vinyl tile right away.
2. No Experience Necessary
Luxury vinyl tile is made for the inexperienced installer. You don’t need experience in laying out a floor. You just have to know how to fit puzzle pieces together – really easy puzzle pieces at that. If you need to make corrections as you go, you can reposition boards without fuss. This is built right into how the boards are designed, with the inexperienced installer in mind.
3. No Seams
When you think puzzle pieces, maybe you’re thinking seams too. But, don’t worry. The ‘boards’ of the vinyl tile are designed to overlap one another to the point where you can’t see the joins at all. This means an easily achieved continuous flooring surface that looks like it’s always been in your space.
4. No Mess
The best in luxury vinyl tile attaches to each board, and not directly to your subfloor. This means no extra glue, and no mess.
5. No Tools
Well, you will need a utility knife to cut the vinyl strips to size, and a measuring tape. But, you won’t need a full arsenal of power tools, which also makes for a relatively quiet installation, too.
Overall, vinyl tile is a quick way to get the effects your after, without engaging in a long period of transition between an old look and a new one.
