Would a vinyl plank floor be good for a bedroom?
A bedroom is supposed to be your personal space. Basically, you make it into whatever you want it to be! Whether you only spend time in your bedroom when you sleep or you hang out there all day, design it to your lifestyle. The floor of course takes up plenty of bed room space. Thus, you probably want a floor that looks good and will last a long time. You should consider a vinyl plank floor.
Vinyl plank floors offer…
Countless design and color options
The cool thing about vinyl is that it can imitate virtually any floor type. Whether it’s hardwood, tile or stone, vinyl can replicate a flooring material almost identically. This unique characteristic makes it very versatile. Vinyl can immitate any floor type and it can be produced in many colors.
If you want your bedroom to catch everybody’s attention, vinyl offers many vibrant color choices. Or, if you’d like a modern floor that flows well with your trendy home, vinyl also has many contemporary looks as well. Ultimately, you’ll be able to find a vinyl plank floor that fits your preferences.
Durability that should outlast your home
A vinyl plank floor consists of a number of layers, one of which is a wear layer. The wear layer tops off the other layers to create a really sturdy floor. All of the layers combined create flex and absorption. Thus, the floor type can withstand significant impacts and moisture.
Chances are your bedroom doesn’t threaten either all too often, but it’s by no means a bad idea to guard against these threats. Even if your bedroom floor lives a stress-free life, it’s still comforting to know your floor can handle the impact of a desk falling on it or a dropped glass of wine.
In addition, a vinyl plank ground is ideal for pets. It’s very tough to scratch, it doesn’t stain and it’s easy to clean. You won’t have to protect it from pets as you would with hardwood. Nor will you have to vacuum it five times over to get all the dog hair out like you would need to do with carpet.
Comfort to the touch
An underrated quality of a bedroom floor is feel. Getting out of bed in the morning or in the middle of the night should be welcomed by soft footing. You probably don’t give it much thought, but the difference between a rock-hard floor and a cushioned floor is definitely noticeable.
Vinyl doesn’t match the softness of carpet (no flooring choice does), but it’s one of the next best alternatives. The combination of softness and appeal only comes along via vinyl plank flooring. If you’re one of those people who try to work their way to the bathroom in the middle of the night with out turning any lights on, vinyl will be soft enough to break a potential fall without causing pain.
The major selling point would probably be vinyl’s affordability. Vinyl is less expensive than hardwood and natural stone flooring. More often than not, you’ll find it cheaper than most tile choices as well. There is not much reason to pay an excessive amount for a floor that’s for a room that few people see. Ultimately, a vinyl plank ground is an simple, functional, low-cost floor that can carry out its duties in sturdiness and appeal with very little effort from the bedroom inhabitant.
