Vinyl flooring has had bad press in the past, dismissed out of hand as being too cheap and poor quality. OK, so there is a lot of cheap, poor quality vinyl around but if you look carefully there are some beautiful, stylish and practical examples out there too . Vinyl has a lot going for it, particularly in kitchens and bathrooms – it’s warm and soft underfoot, wipes clean, durable and can be super stylish too. We’ve rounded up some of the most stylish vinyl flooring options on the market.

 

What is Luxury Vinyl Flooring?

Luxury Vinyl Flooring or Luxury Vinyl Tiles (LVF/LVT) are referred to in the industry as being of higher quality to traditional vinyl, using new technology to create a flooring system that can compete with the likes of engineered wood or ceramic tiles in terms of quality and durability stakes. It’s usually made up of a number of layers to provide a soft, cushioned feel, along with a film of photorealistic wood or ceramic (if that’s what you’re after) with a durable scratch resistant wear layer on top.

 

Coloured and patterned vinyl

My personal take on all materials and finishes used in a building project is that they shouldn’t pretend to be something they’re not. As close as wood or ceramic effect vinyl might look in pictures to the real thing, it won’t ever feel authentic. So, I say embrace vinyl for what it is and focus instead on the possibilities it provides; with its possibilities for rich colours and glorious patterns to either make a statement OR provide a neutral, calming backdrop for your other interior design finishes and flourishes.
