Is Click Vinyl Flooring The Right Choice

If you’ve been considering luxury vinyl floors for a while now but aren’t sure yet you’re not alone. Many people are accustomed to traditional flooring options and shy away from modern materials. Here we give you some pointers when considering the question of is click vinyl flooring the right choice. 

Vinyl flooring has come an incredibly long way since its inception. Most still think of the older style sheet vinyl, but with technological innovations click vinyl flooring is a million miles away form that. They are robust, waterproof, durable and they look great. Pro-Tek™ LVT floors are backed by years of rigorous R&D and stringent stress tests, offering the very best in modern vinyl flooring. .

If however, you are confused as to which style, type or pattern is best for your space, read on.


Points to consider

These fall into two main categories – the practical consideration and the aesthetic one. Practical considerations are typically about how you want your floor to work. While the aesthetic consideration has more to do with your personal taste and style. Below are a few pointers to inspire you and get you started on your exciting flooring journey.


Take note of the area

As a starting point, take a look at the area where you plan to install a click vinyl floor. Whether you are choosing flooring for a home kitchen or a busy restaurant, there are four main things to consider;

Kitchens are characterised by spills and messes and needrobust vinyl floors that can withstand all of them. Darker shades of flooring, in this case, will be more forgiving to everyday stains and marks.

A bedroom, on the other hand, requires a floor that feels soft and warm underfoot. You may also need to consider if the floor iscompatible with underfloor heating systems.

If you want to make the area appear larger, go for lighter colour floors to lend the illusion of space.

In order to have a cohesive room that feels harmonious throughout, ensure that your furniture, wall colour and ornamental accents complement your floor. For more on matching your floor and wall colour, click here.


Think through these questions 

  1. Commercial or residential? In commercial settings, it’s best to choose vinyl floors with a thicker wear layer to withstand heavy foot traffic and everyday impact.
  2. Is it a more formal or casual space? A formal space would look great with Pro-Tek™ Longplanks, while an informal space would work beautifully with playful checkerboard tiles.
  3. Traditional or modern? A distressed, vintage wood look would complement a traditional décor, while a monochrome black floor would suit a space with metallic fittings and a sleek finish.


Play with zoning

With the sheer amount of colours and patterns available, you can really push the boundaries with your flooring ideas. Zoning is one such popular trend that is taking bold strides in the flooring world. Remember how you were told to keep flooring uniform all over? Well, zoning is all about breaking that rigid rule.

Instead, it helps create different areas in the same space by changing the flooring. For instance, you could have traditional dark vinyl oak planks in your living space, but separate your dining nook by using crisp white tiles. This kind of contrasting zone in the same space has a sharp and dramatic appeal that feels fresh and edgy. If you want to soften the contrast, you can always tie it all together with simple accessories. Such as matching or coordinating lamps, rugs or ornaments in both zones.

Zoning is especially making an impact in modern offices, which lean towards more open-plan and inclusive spaces. In this case, you can create visually separate spaces for meeting rooms using contrasting flooring colours or designs. Warm, neutral tones can be used in work areas to enhance comfort and the feeling of calm. Whilst bright, modern flooring can be used in recreational areas.


Experiment with colour and pattern

We can’t stress this fact enough – when it comes to choice, luxury vinyl is a clear winner.

One of the greatest benefits of luxury vinyl is its versatility and flexibility, allowing designs to be mixed together creatively. This means you can experiment by juxtaposing warm and cool coloured planks and creating interesting patterns. A space that feels too ordinary can be given an instant upgrade by adding a herringbone floor in contrasting dark and light shades. In this case, remember to keep your furniture and other accessories muted, so that the room does not appear too overpowering.

The checkerboard pattern is also making a huge comeback and you could look at adding visual interest in areas like the kitchen with this style. 


Floors that make a great impression

Luxury vinyl floors are designed to meet the demands of hectic modern-day lives. It’s a great and affordable way to add colour, personality and character to your space with minimal fuss. From urban lofts to country cottages, victorian mansions to modern high-rises – whatever the setting, luxury vinyl fits right in.
