It is really worth considering vinyl flooring as a more affordable alternative. You may be surprised to learn that you have probably walked on vinyl flooring in homes and businesses many times, firmly believing that it was real wood, laminate, or stone. Vinyl is so realistic that guests to your home will never be able to tell the difference. But is vinyl really suitable for use in rooms other than wet areas like kitchens and bathrooms? Will it suit your lifestyle and your interior style? With the expert knowledge of our professionals, we can help you decide.
Vinyl has been a popular flooring choice for bathrooms for years and with good reason. Its practical and resistant properties make it ideal for your bathroom. With endless features such as anti-slip, water resistance, easy maintenance, and style, transform your bathroom today with quality vinyl flooring.
Like the bathroom, the kitchen is another obvious area where vinyl rules! Any spills can be quickly mopped up, leaving no residue or staining. This means that your floor will continue to look as good as new for years.
Vinyl as kitchen flooring? It’s a no-brainer.
The living room, however, is not so obvious. The vinyl flooring of today is thick, cushioned, and comfortable underfoot with a fantastic appearance. With designs ranging from all kinds of wood to travertine-style stone, there’s one to suit all tastes. We also offer a full range of carpets that would also be perfect for your lounge area.
Like the lounge, vinyl can be ideal for bedrooms and its practicality makes it perfect for a kid’s room. Any spills can be dealt with in no time and it is super comfortable to sit on to read or play. Plus, with its compatibility with underfloor heating, their toes can be toasty warm all year round.
The hallway and landing are high traffic areas that require hard-wearing flooring so vinyl can work really well. The easy-to-clean properties also make it a great option for the busy areas within your home. However, sheet vinyl flooring is not recommended for stairs.
Whether you use your dining room for daily family meals or formal dinner parties, a practical flooring choice is always preferable as accidental spills will occasionally happen. Vinyl’s wipe-clean surface is the ideal choice with gorgeous designs to choose from and very little maintenance.
Due to the ever-improving process of vinyl printing, vinyl flooring comes in a huge array of designs and patterns. Any design you fancy can be yours with each one being incredibly realistic. This wide variety of designs allows you the freedom to be creative in your home with colour and pattern. From wood and stone to mosaic and patterns, vinyl flooring is a great way to be creative with your home's interior whatever your style.

Wood-effect vinyl complete with knots and grain detailing is fantastically authentic. Available in any wood type you care to think of, from a whitewashed finish or pale beech to atmospheric dark walnut in every wood shade, plank detail, and finish, you are simply spoiled for choice. Some even have a textured surface to create even more realism, especially when walked on with bare feet. In fact, the only thing that wood-effect vinyl flooring doesn’t have is the ongoing maintenance on a real wood floor.
Plain, single-colour flooring can really make an impact in your home. Whether you choose a neutral shade like beige or cream for your floor, or decide to really pack a punch with a solid block of something bright like red or yellow, a plain vinyl creates a fabulous basis for your room and allows you to really make it your own.
The combination of colour, practicality, and affordability makes plain vinyl flooring a worthy investment for your home.
The term ‘patterned vinyl’ covers a multitude of designs and styles, from zigzags and stripes to everything in-between. You can really jazz up a room with a funky geometric pattern or a colourful stripe.
If you’ve always wanted to add a bit of pizzazz to your living space, or wish to brighten up a kids’ bedroom with fun and practical flooring, there is bound to be a patterned vinyl to suit your needs.
A fantastic alternative to the real thing, tile-effect vinyl gives the illusion of an expensive tiled floor. Always wanted a slate-tiled floor or to remember your holiday villa with terracotta tiling, however it just doesn’t match your budget? Our realistic designs, including granite, marble, and ceramic as well as slate tiles, will give you the effect you desire at a fraction of the cost.
Also, instead of cold, hard tiles, this cushioned flooring brings comfort to your toes, with insulating properties to ensure that your home stays cosy and warm as well.
A stone floor looks fantastic and complements a contemporary styled room as well as a home with a more classic design. Popular in many homes, stone is a classic material for floors as it gives a beautifully timeless finish. Available in a range of shades, stone floors vary in style and are very versatile.
Stone tiles can be cold and a slip hazard when wet, as well as being expensive to buy and install. Stone-effect vinyl flooring is considerably warmer, slip-resistant, and an affordable alternative to real stone tiles.
Have you always wanted the intricate designs on your floor that only mosaic tiles can create? We understand that these can be expensive, and installation can also take a lot of time and money. As with other tiled floors, there are also practicalities to consider like ongoing maintenance, and the fact that they are hard and cold to walk on.
There are lots of designs of mosaic vinyl flooring available that will give you exactly the look you want as well as heat and sound insulation, all with little to no maintenance. At Alexanders “The Carpet & Flooring Store”, we also offer a premium selection of luxury vinyl tiles.
