Vinyl flooring is a resilient flooring option that has become extremely popular with modern day homeowners, mainly because it is relatively cheap to install and very easy to maintain. Vinyl floors are manufactured in a wide range of colours and patterns and serve as the perfect substitution for wood, marble or concrete floors.
Compared to other flooring materials, vinyl flooring only became popular amongst the public in the mid 1900’s. The idea of using vinyl as a flooring option made its debut at the Century of Progress Exposition in Chicago in 1933, where a vinyl composition tile was first put on display.
Although vinyl flooring has been in existence since the early 1900’s, it was only widely marketed during the late 1940’s, due to the scarcity of vinyl during the war. When vinyl floors became popular with home- and business owners it quickly began to dominate the flooring market. Today, vinyl flooring is the second most chosen option, after carpet flooring, when it comes to flooring options in the United States and many other countries.
Vinyl floors are practical, easy to clean and maintain and relatively cheap to install. These attributes have led to vinyl flooring becoming a popular flooring material throughout the world. Vinyl floors are suitable for both residential and commercial use. As a flooring option, it’s particularly popular for business use because it provides a slightly softer surface than wood or stone/ceramic tile surfaces, allowing people to stand more comfortably for extended periods of time.
