With rising construction costs, homeowners and builders are looking for ways to create the best flooring without breaking the bank. This comes in the form of vinyl, no, not the vinyl you used to play music on, but the high quality material that is quickly becoming popular in so many buildings in Singapore.
With a fantastic cost to quality ratio, homes set with vinyl flooring have numerous advantages over over types of flooring. Vinyl is clean and slightly soft, so when accidents occur, not only is your floor protected and safe, but extremely easy to clean.
Vinyl does what other flooring like wood and carpet can’t. Installation is cheap and highly durable and won’t soak up stains like carpet or wood paneling. Vinyl comes in many unique styles and colors, making it perfect for kitchens, dining rooms, bathrooms and living areas. Vinyl comes in two forms, tiles and sheets, and while tiles may eventually allow water in over years and form cracks, vinyl sheets on the other hand do not.
There are various levels of padding that can installed under the sheet to ensure that you can have your floor as firm or as gentle to the touch as you prefer. You could in theory make the living room area be softer when you’re walking, and have firmer vinyl sheets in the kitchen, or possibly any area where you aren’t spending time walking about, such as guest bathrooms and closets. Costs of labor are competitive as well due the the ease of which vinyl tiles and vinyl sheets are placed and installed.
Vinyl is beautiful and due to it’s affordability, it’s ease of installation, many features and is customizable. This pros are creating a big shift away from more archaic flooring styles, and into a new generation for many Singaporeans.
