Washington, D.C.—The Vinyl Institute recently released the results of a designer survey on vinyl. According to a research study by Accountability Information Management satisfaction with vinyl and vinyl applications is up over 20% since 2010 amongst architects and interior designers. Architects said they are 15% more satisfied with vinyl today, and interior designers said they are 28% more satisfied.
Vinyl’s sustainability registered the greatest increase in satisfaction—up 30%. Architects and designers also said they are more satisfied with vinyl’s impact on the environment and its ability to meet their clients’ needs.
Architects and designers are using vinyl building products, including flooring, wallcovering and more, because:
- It’s durable and performs well over time
- It’s easy to maintain/clean
- It’s less expensive than many alternatives
- It does not rust or corrode
Below are other findings from the survey.
