Are you planning on replacing your flooring but not sure what to replace it with? There are many different choices to choose from such as cork, rubber, ceramic tile, marble and many more. Hardwood is often a good choice because it can give a nice, homey feel to any room or foundation. However, hardwood flooring may require more maintenance than other types of flooring and can get quite expensive. Even in the smallest home it can cost thousands of dollars to have hardwood installed. For these reasons some people prefer to go with something that seems looks the same but is a lot cheaper and requires less maintenance.
If you want the look and feel of a beautiful hardwood floor but do not want some of the hassle or expenses that go with one, then getting Vinyl Plank Flooring may be a good option for you. Vinyl plank comes in many different patterns and styles and has all the design benefits of hardwood but is easier to clean, more durable, and is a fraction of the price. Vinyl plank flooring can come either in rolls or in strips making installation quick and easy. It is self sticking, so all you have to do is peal the backing off and lay the vinyl on a dry floor.
