If you love the look of hardwood floors, but they just are not in the budget, you should buy vinyl flooring planks. These are a somewhat new type of flooring on the market that do an excellent job of mimicking that gorgeous look of hardwood floors.
Buy Vinyl Flooring Planks
There are a couple of ways to achieve that lovely look of hardwood or softwood flooring. Both are easy to keep clean and hold up very well for years to come. You can buy vinyl flooring planks or rolled vinyl flooring that has a very realistic hardwood design on it.
Vinyl Flooring Planks
Vinyl flooring planks come in several types in a variety of price ranges. There are the solid vinyl types and the vinyl with a wood core type, which is a lot lighter but might not be as water-tight as solid vinyl.
Snap Together Planks
The snap together planks are like hardwood planks and are laid down in a similar way. The downside is that they must be snapped together perfectly during install. And there is no fixing mistakes or damaged planks once the floor is done without disassembling the entire floor to get to that spot.
Glue Down Planks
The other planks are glue down. These are laid onto a bed of flooring glue which hold them to the floor for many years. These are usually preferred because if one is damaged then it can be replaced at a later time. You can get right into the spot, remove the tile and replace it.
Rolled vinyl has vastly improved in its look and durability over the years. You can get an amazing hardwood look with it. It is easy to clean, it holds up well and it can be easy to repair. The downside is that you’ll see the pattern repeat in large rooms.
