Vinyl flooring is like the Generation Z flooring. No, it’s not just for teenagers and people in their 20s; it is representative of our current culture and desires. Everything these days is about ease, efficiency and technology. I’m pretty sure Siri can order a pizza for me, so all of my home investments better be able to keep up with the times!
Vinyl is current, modern – almost like the floor of the future. What laminate floors started in the 1980s, vinyl flooring is continuing and even, dare I say, surpassing! The new generation of vinyl flooring offers convincing natural wood and stone looks that anyone can install and maintain no problem. Vinyl flooring was created for the busy world we live in, where convenience is key and everyone is searching for the lowest price.
