What is Vinyl Flooring?

The Vinyl flooring above is what we call a loose lay 5mm vinyl floor manufactured by Serfloor Australia.
Vinyl flooring is a type of synthetic floor covering that’s made from a conglomerate of different materials as shown above the top layer being a UV coating which protects it from sunlight, a wear layer which is perfect for high foot traffic areas, the film which gives it the style or colour, the vinyl core which gives the overall plank a softening feel when walking on it, the fibreglass layer which gives it the strength and ties in the 2 vinyl cores, and lastly the anti-slip rubber backing as this particular floor can be laid without glue.
It’s an extremely durable flooring option that can last for decades when properly maintained.
Vinyl is available in a variety of textures, including smooth, wood-like, textured and distressed to give that authentic Hamptons or Boho look you are after. Vinyl is also available with a wide range of patterns including timber, brick, tile, stone, and even carbon fiber.
Vinyl is a great option for high-traffic areas, such as family rooms, kitchens, dining rooms, and entryways. It’s also a good choice for spaces with pets or children.
Unlike natural hardwood floors, vinyl is extremely durable and can withstand the wear and tear associated with having kids and animals in the home. So if you fur baby ‘Bruce’ is a big heavy dog with strong nails, vinyl flooring is perfect.
Vinyl is also water-resistant, making it a great option for high-moisture areas like kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry rooms.
If a spill occurs, simply mop it up and let the vinyl dry completely before replacing the rug or mat if that’s what you have laid on top.
