Vinyl flooring has been around for many years, and while it has had many improvements during that time, it has never been replaced. It's a durable and easy-to-clean flooring material often perfect for active families. If you have young children, pets, or a sloppy spouse, vinyl flooring is great for kitchens, baths, family rooms, or even finished basements.
The days of choosing between black and white square tiles are long gone - vinyl flooring is now usually available in rolls, has numerous patterns to choose from, and is easy to install. A good vinyl flooring contractor can redo a large kitchen or family room in a few hours, and depending on the pattern, seams are almost impossible to see. Most styles are fairly easy to patch if you have a few pieces of the original material.
One of the biggest improvements to the flooring over the years was the introduction of no-wax vinyl flooring. You no longer have to spend hours on your hands and knees trying to put a shine on your floor - with no-wax vinyl flooring it's just a matter of using some cleaner and a mop. Vinyl flooring is available in different grades. You may even consider a commercial grade if your family is extremely active.
