So what is vinyl flooring? Vinyl flooring is considered to be either homogeneous or heterogenous and comes in long sheets (usually for commercial purposes only), in planks or tiles.
Homogeneous vinyl flooring is constructed of the same PCV colour through the entire sheet and is mostly used in the construction of vinyl sheeting. There are no layers, or underlay and is a flat/chip colour finish. Homogeneous vinyl is recommended for projects such as surgeries or anywhere where hygiene regulations need to be adhered to as the sheet can be manipulated to “cove” around the edges of the room.
Heterogeneous vinyl is constructed of multiple layers generally consisting of:
Some vinyl manufacturers can include other layers and surface protection.
If you find yourself asking, is vinyl flooring good? First, we need to understand the project, investigate the current flooring/subfloor and discuss the purpose that your new flooring will need to serve. We recommend booking a free measure and quote with our team to determine if vinyl flooring is a good solution for the job.
All of the vinyl sold at One Source Flooring is manufactured by industry leaders, each with their own benefits and warranties. Below, we cover some of the benefits and disadvantages found with vinyl flooring.
Vinyl flooring is

When you’re on the hunt for quality vinyl flooring, there are a few things that you should consider. These include:
Depending on the subfloor material, you may need to select a specific type of vinyl. Karndean and Interface are the only brands we offer that you can install over yellow tongue, reducing your floor preparation. If you currently have tiles down and need a flood coat during floor preparation, you may need to go with a 2mm plank.
Depending on the floor preparation required and your subfloor, you may need to select a specific thickness for your vinyl, so it’s close to the height of your adjoining rooms. We can work around this though—it’s best to discuss any differing room heights with the team.
Depending on how long you want the floor to last, it’s important to choose a plank that not only has long structural and surface warranties.
For most people, this is the most important factor. We offer free in-home measure and quote appointments so you can trial different colours in your home. Not only do our planks come in different finishes (timber, stone, concrete etc) and colours, there are also different types of embossing—some appearing more realistic than others.
Vinyl flooring is a popular flooring choice in Gold Coast homes due to its timber-look appearance, durability, waterproof qualities and its ease of installation. Firstly though, like all flooring types, it’s important that the base underneath your new vinyl flooring is properly prepared. It’s here where many DIY jobs become unstuck, so engaging with a professional vinyl flooring installer like One Source Flooring is recommended.
By selecting vinyl planks (in particular, the thinner 2mm planks), you must ensure that your subfloor is impeccably smooth. Bumps and ramping are easily visible and can be an unfortunate side effect of ill-prepared floors.
Like any flooring product, the cost of vinyl flooring is dependent on the design, manufacturer and quality of the vinyl flooring that you selected. It’s important to note that while you will see an advertised vinyl flooring cost based on metres squared, the total cost will ultimately come down to the amount of boxes you will need to purchase.
Some key determining factors of your vinyl flooring cost include:
If you’re looking for both supply and installation costs, you’ll need to consider your floor preparation costs too.
All of these factors can affect the total of your vinyl flooring cost. To get an accurate quote, we suggest booking a free in-home measure and quote with the experts at One Source Flooring.
Vinyl floors are one of the easiest floors to clean as they are waterproof and durable. If you’re looking for tips on how to clean vinyl floors, you simply need to vacuum or sweep regularly, and mop up any spills. We recommend using a hard flooring cleaner such as Pureflor, which:
When you purchase your vinyl flooring through One Source, we also provide the manufacturers care and maintenance guides, so we recommend reviewing these prior to cleaning your floors with any chemicals to maintain your warranty.
Ultimately, discussing whether vinyl flooring is better than laminate flooring comes down to the quality of products and their purpose within your project. Our top-of-the-range laminate flooring is just that—top quality, durable and waterproof (you can even steam mop it!).
If you compare a top quality vinyl with a lower quality laminate, then vinyl may be the better choice for you. Unfortunately, this answer isn’t black and white, so we suggest you drop into our Gold Coast flooring showroom and test-drive our vinyl and laminate flooring for yourself.
