Everything you need to know about installing vinyl flooring

Find out if vinyl flooring could work for you with the help of Carpet Call.

Could vinyl flooring work for you and your home?


At Carpet Call, you’ll find a diverse range of vinyl flooring options – all possessing unique characteristics but sharing the same high quality and stylish finishes:

  • If you want to emulate the look of ceramic flooring for less, opt for vinyl tiles. These are available as square pieces and are a fantastic alternative to costly stoneware counterparts.
  • In a similar vein, if timber flooring is more to your tastes, but the accompanying price tag isn’t, choose luxury vinyl floorboards. These look similar to natural timber flooring but cost significantly less. This doesn’t mean quality and aesthetic are compromised, however. Luxury vinyl floorings are typically sold in planks and fit seamlessly together using a convenient locking mechanism, eliminating the need for nailing or glueing.

Different types and aesthetics affect price points, so it’s important to consider your preferences when purchasing.


Deciding whether vinyl flooring is right for you? Consider these important factors before making a decision.

  • Style
  • Price
  • Functionality
  • Location
  • Warranty

When assessing which vinyl flooring option is right for you, think about your individual situation. For example, you may have young kids running around the home, so a vinyl with a thicker coating will ensure your floor lasts and withstands the demands of high traffic areas. Alternatively, you may find it more cost effective in the long term to pay a little more for a vinyl that is more water resistant and guaranteed to last in a kitchen or bathroom space.

Vinyl is perfect for use in a kitchen space and can add a stylish touch.



As noted, there are many variables that affect the final invoice from your vinyl flooring installation. As well as factoring in the aforementioned considerations, you’ll also have to think about what it takes to get the job done. This includes the potential need to hire a professional fitter if your subfloor isn’t appropriately prepared. If this is the case, the cost of tradespeople will differ depending on the size of the job, and if there are any obstructions that will make the task more difficult.

Helping you find the perfect vinyl flooring style for you are the experts at Carpet Call who will handle the whole process from selecting the flooring style to having it installed with a fantastic product and installation warranty. Pop in store today to discuss your options with the team and see how vinyl flooring can become the perfect feature for your home.
