6 characteristics and advantages of vinyl flooring you need to know

by Hardwood Design Centre Flooring

Building or renovating an environment is always a challenging task.

One of the last steps in this process is the installation of floors and coverings. At this time, that doubt always comes up when analyzing the types that the market offers.

However, one option in particular is on the rise in decor: the vinyl flooring .

Vinyl flooring is in evidence especially for the advantages it offers in terms of acoustics and resistance.

And don't think that these are the only benefits obtained.

This option also has very peculiar characteristics that must be analyzed when making the final decision.

That's why we're going to introduce you to six characteristics and advantages of vinyl flooring that you need to know about. Without further ado, let's go to the list:

1.Acoustic Comfort

This is, without a doubt, one of the main reasons for the growing adhesion to vinyl flooring.

Those who live in an apartment, for example, know how uncomfortable the noise of a jump and its amplified “toc toc” is. On vinyl flooring, this is no longer a problem, as it muffles the noise of footsteps, making the environment more comfortable for circulation.

It is also an ideal feature for the corporate environment where there is a large flow of people.

2.Keeps the room temperature

The thermal characteristics of the vinyl flooring provide a pleasant temperature in any season .

That's because it doesn't heat up in the heat and provides more comfort in winter than cold floors, such as porcelain tiles, for example.


Protected with a polyurethane resin, the vinyl floor is more resistant to stains and scratches 

Vinyl offers even more water resistance compared to laminate flooring, for example, which is the most popular on the market.

They don't absorb liquids easily and are more “tolerant” to a damp cloth, but of course that doesn't mean that when cleaning you can overdo it and leave the floor submerged.

4.Composition and installation

Vinyl flooring is made with vinyl chloride or PVC and can come in rulers, boards and blankets.

In addition, it is possible for it to be superimposed on another material at the time of installation, as long as the application site is level, smooth and seamless.


Sustainability has become an important concept when making a purchase, especially due to the population's greater environmental awareness.

In this context, vinyl flooring stands out for being ecologically correct , as it can be produced with recycled materials and are manufactured with a technology that reduces water consumption.

6.Various print options

The aesthetic aspect is obviously one of the most important aspects of a decoration.

In this aspect, the advantage of using vinyl flooring is that it offers several print options, such as real imitations of wood, marble, burnt cement, among other possibilities that range from striking colors to a more discreet appearance.

Everything will depend, of course, on the personality of whoever is running the project
