Ok, we’re investing in a floor face lift. But should we go with a Carpet or with Vinyl? Confusing…!! We’ve heard that many a times. Well, consider these tips. Hopefully it’ll help you make your choice.
- Consider what the room is being used for
- Consider traffic in the room
- Consider cost of maintenance
Carpets can look plush and set the mood for a room, but so can good vinyl flooring. Probably at a lower cost too. Let’s consider a dining room for an example. Here’s a picture of a dining room carpeted.
Looks great indeed, especially with white interiors. But the dining area is a high traffic area. In addition, the potential to drop food and drink and maybe even cutlery is quite high. This is where a Vinyl flooring would be a much better choice. And they can look absolutely wonderful too. You can possibly consider a rustic looking vinyl flooring or a more modern wood effect vinyl plank. Look at these pics.
Dropped food, dropped wine, No worries!! Water and a mop is all you need. Oops! dropped a knife and damaged a plank!! No worries! Just replace that one plank. Cool isn’t it?
Hope this helps you make your choice. Let us know what you think.
