Published: October 14, 2022

Vinyl flooring has changed in the last few years with new technology and it is fast becoming a popular option for homes where practicality, durability and functionality are the highest priority. It’s changed in appearance too, with many vinyl timber-look styles now being incredibly realistic. It’s an affordable flooring option and now one that is beautiful as well! Here are some of our favourite vinyl flooring styles and where they can be installed.



The vinyl range within FastFIT is broad and there are timber styles to suit any colour scheme or home style. Dark and light, character-filled and more subtle designs are all included in this range of practical vinyl flooring. FastFIT provides excellent value for money and is incredibly resilient in areas that can really endure heavy usage such as family rooms, play spaces and meal areas.

LooseLay vinyl is available in a wide range of classic timber-look finishes like Oaks and Australian Species to work back with any home. It’s a family-friendly option and suitable for pet owners too. The resilient design is also waterproof so you can create a seamless design from the front door to the back. It looks fantastic in open-plan living spaces as well as those areas of the home that require a little more thought such as bathrooms, kitchens, laundries and entryways. It’s a perfect selection for investment properties and holiday homes where damage to flooring and complicated maintenance is the last thing on your mind.
