When selecting the right vinyl flooring for the rooms in your home, consider the room’s foot traffic and the types of activities that will take place. Review the manufacturer’s warranty and performance ratings of the products that you are choosing from. Usually, extended warranties are available with upgraded products, giving you added confidence that your floor will stand up to the level of activity in your household. In addition to warranty, as you move up in the vinyl price range there are other benefits such as added selection of patterns, colors and textures.
When selecting a vinyl flooring pattern, you want to consider the size of the room and the size of the pattern. The decorating rule of thumb still applies to vinyl flooring in relation to room size and color. Lighter flooring colors will make a smaller room appear larger, while darker colors will absorb the light and create a more intimate setting. When considering pattern sizes, a smaller pattern works well in small areas or in rooms where the pattern will be visually interrupted with pieces of furniture. Keep in mind that larger vinyl flooring patterns can actually visually expand a room.
One other point of consideration: since vinyl flooring comes in six and 12-foot widths, seaming may be necessary depending on the area to be covered. Certain patterns will hide seams better. For example, tile patterns with grout lines are better able to mask seams. For all other inquires, please contact our showroom and we can answer all your questions.
