Vinyl Tablecloths

A simply addition like a vinyl tablecloth can go a very long way in enhancing your overall dining experience. There are many reasons that you may want to use one vinyl tablecloths at your home.

By covering a table with something as simple as vinyl, there's no need to worry about stains like this or using coasters whatsoever.
Another great feature of vinyl table tops is the fact that it's very easy to clean food or spills off the surface of them. If you have kids in the house, you'll likely experience spills a few times per week.
You'll be happy to know that it's very easy to maintain vinyl tablecloths, as the food simply slides right off. Most are very resistant to any stains as well.

Vinyl is a more durable and rigid material than cloth and linen. Vinyl has a rubbery feel and dries much faster than cloth, hence can be ideal when used for outdoor tables. Cloth or linen tablecloths can stain quickly, where a vinyl tablecloth can simply be wiped with a damp rag.
Vinyl can be more expensive depending on the quality of vinyl used, but can be a good alternative to using materials such as cloth.
A tablecloth made of vinyl can also act as great table runners, since they don't fold as easily due to its "rigidity". This makes it a great material for situations when there are a lot of movement on top of the table.

Vinyl tablecloths also come in all types of sizes, although the most commonly used include rectangular 60 x 102 tablecloths and square 52 x 52 tablecloths. You can also order custom cut vinyl tablecloths depending on the vendor, although they can be more expensive.
