  • Why Engineered Vinyl Is the Perfect Choice for Modular Housing

    June 14th, 2022

     

    Of all the important choices you have to make when building a modular home, or any home for that matter, the most important is flooring. There are a multitude of options available to you, however, engineered vinyl planks and tiles have been growing in popularity over the past couple of years and it’s for good reason.

     

    Solid wood has always been a popular and beautiful choice of flooring, due to its natural textures and its timeless and classic charm. Wood however is very expensive and does come with some headaches. Wood is soft and therefore susceptible to scratches and denting and if lacquered, it will tend to fade over time. This means that wood floors need to be refinished every few years to keep them looking like new. They are also quite costly and time-consuming to install.

     

    Carpets have been a staple floor covering for centuries. They are a cost-effective option, soft and plush underfoot and ideal for bedrooms and lounges. They do however harbour allergens, can never be cleaned properly, change colour easily and, in today’s busy world, can be quite an inconvenience to maintain. Modern trends see us moving away from carpets as they give homes a more traditional, outdated look and that is also not suitable in modular builds that include extensions such as kitchens, bathrooms, and conservatories, which may get wet.

     

    Why Engineered Vinyl Wins Out Over the Rest

    What is the perfect solution, then? Luxury vinyl tiles and planks. LVT (luxury vinyl tiles) or LVP (luxury vinyl planks) are engineered vinyl, constructed from multiple hard-wearing plastic composite materials that mimic the look of real wood, ceramic or stone in any colour or design. Engineered vinyl is also much more durable and much easier to maintain than other types of flooring and the number of styles and colours to choose from is vast.
