We love things to look good. Whether it comes in the form of the latest clothes, the new handbags or every little accessory that comes along. When it comes to design aspects of our home, can we employ that love of looking good in our flooring choices?

Let’s not just focus on the look, let’s talk about all the surrounding points that we probably never usually factor in. Can it be low maintenance, easy to install and, above all else, can it just be easy to take care of without a lot of time and expense?

Easy on the Bank

Let’s look at the hot product – the Distinctive range of luxury vinyl flooring.

Distinctive is a flooring product that has an easy installation process that does not require a professional fitter to install, therefore saving you a considerable chunk of change on your home budget if you think it is something you can do yourself. Usually, it is 50-50 on whether people undertake it themselves or go with an approved fitter.

Vinyl flooring is a product that can be either a glue-down or click in-place method, perfect for homeowners who love a bit of DIY. Having boards specifically cut to size ensures that there is no leftover mess after fitting out your room.

Safe from Harm

When you count how many things you do in the home throughout the day, pretty much every activity will have flooring under your feet. A regular day sees a lot of foot traffic – some impactful.

With carpet and real hardwood flooring, you are living with spills, staining or chairs scratching parts of the floor which can be costly to repair and replace and look patchy in the process.

Luxury vinyl flooring, due to its anti-scratch safeguards, is incredibly durable for upwards of 30 years. It can be as simple as a quick mop, a simple sweep, and a quick wipe up of stains which leaves zero traces of stain or discolouration.

No matter if it is mud, food, drink, or rain you will be safe in knowing that a quick clean is all that is required.

Safe All Year Around

You have heavy rain in the spring, hot weather in the summer and cold and damp in the winter.  This usually leaves other flooring options prone to water damage, humidity, or moisture in the air.

With Distinctive flooring, no leaking will soak through ruining the subfloor – which if compromised would need expensive work in repairs. In the hot months, you are not prone to the rising of the flooring with humidity, and throughout those cold damp months, there will be no need to worry over moisture damage. With so many fashion design choices to hand, getting guidance from experts further opens up the best for your home. Most resellers and installers will champion vinyl flooring as the best option for many reasons, but your home situation will always differ from home to home – making it best to consult with them for your requirements.

Luxury vinyl flooring, such as grey oak flooring, can be just as fashionable as everything else in your home, and if you love being at home when the sun does not shine then Distinctive is the word.
