Why we love vinyl

While we’re a company that supplies the whole range of flooring types, including carpet, hardwood and laminate flooring, we have a real soft spot for our vinyl flooring collection. If you haven’t used vinyl before, it’s worth investigating. There is a huge variety of patterns and designs, and it’s an affordable and practical way to transform the spaces in your home.

And it’s not just the look of vinyl that’s attractive. Today’s highly-engineered vinyl flooring is insulated, comfortable and easy to clean, making it a great option for high-traffic areas or busy family lives.

Perhaps it’s time to take a look at the benefits that vinyl can bring? Here are our top five:

Durable – vinyl will last for many years, giving you fantastic value for money. It can handle pretty much anything, making it perfect for family homes or hard-traffic commercial settings. And, with the increase in the number of people working from home, durable flooring that doesn't wear out easily is essential. Specialist coatings mean that vinyl is resistant to most stains, meaning your flooring stays looking good for longer.  

Great designs – vinyl has come a long way, and there is now a wide range of patters and designs to help transform your home. From wood-effect plank and herringbone designs to traditional tile patterns, there’s something for every setting.

Affordable – vinyl is usually more affordable than other types of flooring, so you can give your room an instant uplift without spending more than you need to. It often takes less time to lay vinyl, and can be laid on a wide variety of surfaces, including existing floorboards and over underfloor heating systems. Find your nearest Furlong retailer to see the ranges available.

Easy maintenance – it’s quick and easy to look after your vinyl flooring. Simple things like putting protective coasters under heavy furniture and cleaning up spills quickly will help, but in general, all you need to do to keep your vinyl looking fabulous is to give it a quick once over with a mop or a vacuum cleaner.

Comfort and insulation – modern vinyl uses either cushion or felt backing. This makes the flooring comfortable underfoot and helps with both heat and sound insulation. Choosing vinyl keeps your home warm, safe and comfortable all year round.

We stock an extensive range of vinyl flooring, and we’ve recently updated our ranges, including Charisma II contemporary tile ranges, and Artisan II plank and herringbone decors. Alongside our wider vinyl range, these collections offer contemporary wood-effect, tiled, and contemporary patterns in a range of stylish colours, giving customers an incredible choice of high quality, affordable vinyl flooring for their home.
