If you’re ready for a kitchen renovation project, you’re no doubt shopping for a variety of items for your remodel. Flooring is probably one of those.
Choosing the right flooring can be a bit of a chore. There are so many options and it’s difficult to figure out which is best for your home. Usually, you’ll need to consider how your kitchen is used, whether there’s lots of traffic in and out, and what complements the rest of the elements you’ve chosen, like cabinets, countertops, and more.
Maybe you’ve heard the term “luxury vinyl flooring” and wonder how it differs from traditional vinyl flooring. If vinyl is something you’re considering, you should certainly learn the difference between the two before you make a final decision.
There’s a good chance you’ve lived in a home with a sheet vinyl floor. Maybe it’s the home you grew up in. Vinyl floors have long been popular and remain as such for several reasons. However, there are some caveats as well. Here are some pros and cons.
It is important to recognize, however, that sheet vinyl floors can tear easily when you’re not careful. Sliding a table or chairs across the floor or moving an appliance can cause major damage. Dropping a knife or other sharp object can cause gouges in the floor, or pets with long, sharp nails can do damage as well. So, in the category of “you get what you pay for”, it’s clear to see that traditional vinyl flooring might not hold up as well as some other options that it might be right for some budgets.
So-called luxury vinyl flooring might be a better choice for your kitchen renovation. Like traditional sheet vinyl, luxury tiles or planks are made up of layers, but one of the layers in a luxury product is a rigid core. This core allows for more durability and the lifespan of the floor will be longer.
Depending on your needs, either sheet vinyl or luxury vinyl tiles or planks may work for your kitchen. Consult with your Mr. Cabinet Care professional about your kitchen renovation project, offering information about the size of your space, the style of your kitchen, whether you plan to sell soon, and other particulars. He/she can help you determine which materials will work best for you and which will give you the most for your kitchen renovation dollars. Visit us at www.mrcabinetcare.com.
