Vinyl flooring is one of the most popular flooring types in the Honolulu and Oahu region. The most popular product in this category is luxury vinyl plank flooring.
What products represent this category? The most popular vinyl products are:
luxury vinyl plank aka LVP floors
luxury vinyl tile aka LVT flooring
sheet or rolled
The one thing that unites them that all of them are made from vinyl. But the installation method can be very different depending on the product: click-in, glue down, loose lay, peel & stick, and others.
What makes vinyl flooring so popular? There are a number of characteristics that helped luxury vinyl to become a king of flooring, here are some of them:
waterproof – all products in this category are not afraid of water, which makes them very practical
cheap – compared to tile and hardwood this product category pricing is relatively cheap and affordable.
simple installation – except for the sheet vinyl, all other installation types can be done by the homeowner
easy maintenance – wet mop is the only solution you will need
Of course, this type of floor has its drawbacks, but if you are looking for the ideal price-performance ratio, this is the floor for you.
What are the most popular brands in the category? Of course, the Stainmaster by Home Depot and Shaw by Lowes brands are among the best knows due to their huge retail web and massive advertising budgets. Next is coming Armstrong, Karndean, Mannington, Tarkett, Mohawk, and others. But it’s important to remember, that a well-known brand doesn’t guarantee high quality and as a rule, is always overpriced. That is why we sell local brands of vinyl flooring at a better price with similar or better specs.
