The Benefits of Plank Flooring in Sydney

Installing a plank floor anywhere around the home has become a trending flooring solution. Plank floors are appropriate in kitchens, bathrooms, and other living areas. Before you decide on your flooring, consider some of the benefits of installing vinyl plank flooring:

  • Accidents involving spilled water occur all the time. Added to that, if you have a pet roaming inside, they inevitably bring in moisture from the outside. This flooring option is waterproof, protecting your floor from any mishaps, and the material also withstands any amount of foot traffic. It is scratch-resistant and won’t stain easily. Vinyl is the perfect addition, especially for the kitchen where you can expect liquid spillage. 

 

  • The aesthetic value of plank flooring is significant. With a vast range of colours, patterns, and designs, you can be certain that this surface will make a positive contribution to your home’s appearance. Vinyl floors closely resemble traditional materials, duplicating wood and stone to perfection. You get the physical appearance of the material without spending a large amount of money.
     

  • With any flooring, you must maintain it to ensure that it lasts. Over time, your plank floors will be exposed to frequent foot traffic and demand a cleanse. Using a broom, vacuum, or microfibre brush is the ideal approach for a clean-up. If you require a deeper solution, using a damp mop with a mild detergent will suffice. These floors have a protective external layer that allows them to last without extensive maintenance. 

Tips for Getting More Value out of Plank Flooring

Plank flooring is a robust addition to your home that will provide you with years of sophistication and luxury. To ensure that you gain maximum value from your flooring, follow these simple tips: 

  • After installing your plank flooring, give it sufficient time to set before walking on it. We recommend that you wait for 48 hours to allow the planks to set securely. Following this rule will extend the life of your flooring, giving you a significant return on your investment. 

 

  • Don’t ever slide furniture on your flooring. If you need to move furniture, use furniture coasters during placement. Heavy furniture movement without protection can cause severe damage to the planks due to the weight of the goods.
     

  • Conduct a moisture test by installing a scrap piece onto the floor while sealing the edges with duct tape. Leave it in place for two to three days, then check if you can easily lift the tape. If you can, then there may be high moisture content in the area that you will need to address before installing your flooring.

Tips Regarding Vinyl Flooring Installations

 

For any renovation that you make in your home, you want it to last to secure a significant return on your investment. Since vinyl floor installations have surged in popularity recently, more contractors are offering their vinyl flooring services. Absorb these tips before installing vinyl floors in your home: 

  • It’s tempting to tear up the old floor, regardless of the material, to install your new vinyl flooring. However, it’s a time-consuming exercise that will also carry extra costs if you hire a contractor to perform it. It is possible to install vinyl floors on top of the old material if that material is dry, clean, and level. It won’t add much height to the floor since vinyl is fairly thin. Ask your contractor about this option.
     

  • Insist that your contractor’s measurements be precise. It doesn’t hurt to measure a room two or three times to guarantee that the size of the vinyl is correct. Even though vinyl flooring is affordable and the installation costs are almost half that of tiles or hardwood, errors always represent costly setbacks. The right installation partner should put your mind at ease.
     

  • Always treat vinyl flooring with care. Don’t walk on the surface for 48 hours after installation to ensure that the vinyl is fully secure before you step into the room. When possible, avoid using high heels or cleats on your new flooring as the spikes may cause dents and scuffs in the material. 

The Benefits of a Timber-Look Vinyl Floor

 

The discovery of vinyl dates to a 19th-century French physician. The material was initially a substitute for rubber. Its ability to be recycled was one of several reasons why it gained popularity. In 1947, a Swedish company launched the first-ever vinyl flooring. The US and Europe followed suit in the 50s and 60s, constantly reinventing designs and styles. Now, years later, vinyl has spread around the world thanks to its benefits:

Upgrading your floors can be an expensive undertaking. The cost of tiles and wooden floors is much higher than vinyl flooring. While vinyl is available in various designs and thicknesses, which will determine its price, this material is generally more affordable than any other flooring solution. 


The options are endless with vinyl floors. You may not be in a financial position to install tile or wood grain floors, but vinyl provides you with the option of installing the same look without the cost. Vinyl can be printed with any design, even lookalike stone or wood. Once installed, it is as appealing and luxurious as the real deal—your floors will require a second glance for anyone to realise that they feature vinyl.


Modern-day vinyl flooring, especially the most luxurious options in the market, has a protective coating on its surface that is resistant to stains and dirt. The material is also waterproof, which is handy for installation in areas such as the kitchen where liquid spilling is a regular possibility. Don’t forget to quickly mop up any spills to ensure that your material lasts longer. A mop and a mild cleanser are ideal for a deeper cleanse of the vinyl. 

It’s surprising just how comfortable a vinyl floor in Sydney feels on the feet. It is soft for people who stand on their feet most of the day and warmer than any other flooring solution. 

Common Mistakes People Make Regarding Best Vinyl Flooring

 

Vinyl has pushed its way to the top to become a preferred flooring. There are a few mistakes that homeowners may make in their effort to upgrade their flooring while spending as little as possible.

Installing vinyl is simple for a trained individual with experience. Opting for the first affordable vinyl flooring installers in Sydney is a mistake—read customer reviews or ask another person who has used their services about the team’s skills and ability. 


While you don’t always have to rip out your previous flooring, ensure that there is a flat, level surface for the contractor to work with to install the new vinyl. Minor imperfections can be covered with luxury vinyl, but other elements could ruin the effect. Inspect the surface that will house the vinyl and make the necessary adjustments. 
The brand of adhesive and how much or little is applied will impact the lifespan of your vinyl floors. Applying too much may result in seepage, affecting the quality of the vinyl on the surface. If it dries, it becomes difficult to remove. Choose the right partner to take care of every detail for your peace of mind.
