Over the years, vinyl flooring has been a popular choice for homeowners looking for a low-maintenance, durable, easy to clean flooring option and still have a variety choices in designs, from patterns to wooden and marble effects. We have an extensive range of Bournemouth vinyl flooring designs in both wood and tile effect in our shop and showroom, as well as contemporary patterned styles.

Are you looking for a tiled look for your kitchen, bathroom, or conservatory? Vinyl tiles may be a good option as they look like ceramic tiles, but the cost is significantly less and are much easier to install, not to mention, they’re easy to clean and maintain.

Vinyl flooring is easy to maintain, cost-effective, and water-resistant and is therefore ideal for kitchens and bathrooms. The majority of our vinyl flooring products are slip-resistant and feel warm to the touch. We can enhance any room with vinyl flooring that can withstand heavy use and still look good. Our excellent range of Luxury Vinyl Flooring Tiles in Bournemouth replicate the natural beauty of wood, stone, slate, and marble and are designed for use in residential and commercial interiors. We have a huge showroom with a wide range of styles and designs of vinyl in Bournemouth to suit all tastes. So here are a few pros and cons of vinyl flooring to consider.

Advantages of Vinyl Flooring


If you’re a keen do-it-yourselfer you can install vinyl flooring yourself, it’s that easy to install, vinyl flooring whether it be in tiles or planks can be installed without a hammer to put them in place. Some vinyl flooring options come with adhesive on the back so you can pull off the backing and place on your floor. Yes, it’s that simple! Or we can install it for you in Bournemouth and Poole.


Vinyl flooring can withstand heavy use and footfall and reduce noise, making it an excellent choice for homeowners with pets and/or children. Unlike carpet and wood flooring, vinyl flooring holds up well with moisture, making it an ideal choice for bathrooms, kitchens, utility rooms and conservatories.


Vinyl is a big win when it comes to cost as it’s not nearly expensive as hardwood floors or carpets.

Disadvantages of Vinyl Flooring

Difficult to remove

While vinyl flooring may be easy to install, removing it can be a little more complicated. The reason is; vinyl flooring is either glued down or has strong adhesive for those self-stick options and can take a lot of time to remove.

More likely to be damaged by furniture

Vinyl flooring is a softer flooring, although it can be comfortable underfoot, it can be prone to damages from sharp-edged furniture being moved around or dropped.
