By mixing and matching, it enables you to create balanced zoning with functional and aesthetic flooring especially in more practical areas. Over time, dirt and dust can wear down and degrade the finish on any type of flooring, including vinyl tile or laminate; therefore it is always a good idea to situate a good-quality doormat or area rug in front of doorways so that grit and grime don’t migrate into the house. Another helpful hint is to use a sheet of plywood or paneling any time you need to move furniture across the floor; this will help prevent scuff marks or tears in the vinyl.
You also may want to use vinyl coasters under the feet and legs of your furniture to safeguard against permanent indentations. These include Pine-Sol Multi-Surface Cleaner ; Pledge Tile & Vinyl Floor Cleaner and Pledge Tile & Vinyl Floor Finish with Future Shine; and Armstrong’s Once ‘n Done Resilient and Ceramic No-Rinse Floor Cleaner and Armstrong Shinekeeper Polish.
With just a little time and elbow grease, vinyl flooring will take years of use and abuse and still look lovely. Depending on the type you’re looking for, you can choose between carpet stair treads, wood stair tread covers, or those made of aluminum, fiberglass or even rubber. As a homeowner you’ll be mostly looking for adequate floor mats that protect and decorate your flooring.
