Decorative patterns are also rising in popularity as a Victorian-esque, pattern-driven aesthetic is taking over Instagram and Pinterest. And the best part of vinyl flooring is that the beauty comes with little to no extra work – maintenance and upkeep are a breeze compared to higher maintenance tile and hardwood!
