Types of Vinyl Flooring

When you’re looking to put vinyl flooring in your home, you are usually doing so because of the distinct advantages vinyl flooring can offer. It is usually more budget-friendly, waterproof or very water resistant, and installation is easy. All vinyl is not the same, however. Here’s a look at the most common types of vinyl flooring.

Luxury Vinyl

Luxury vinyl is the newest type of vinyl flooring on the market and has dramatically surpassed the other types of vinyl in terms of looking like stone or wood. It even has realistic textures, and it comes in planks or tiles. There are also versions of luxury vinyl tile that can be groutable. It does come at a higher price point, however.

Sheet Vinyl

Sheet vinyl is your standard vinyl flooring. It comes in large rolls that the installer then cuts to fit the floor. Because it is one solid sheet, it is excellent for bathrooms and basements. There is much less chance of water seeping underneath and ruining it and your subfloor. It is also one of the most budget-friendly flooring options available. It is also called resilient flooring.

Linoleum

While linoleum and vinyl are often used interchangeably, they are different. Linoleum is made of linseed oil, an organic material derived from flax seeds, that is then mixed with a variety of other natural materials, and vinyl is made from PVC, a derivation of petroleum. While it usually comes in sheets, like sheet vinyl, it can also come in tiles and planks. One big difference between the two is that linoleum is not waterproof. It is water resistant, but excessive amounts of liquid can cause the corners to curl.

All types of vinyl flooring have come a long way, since the black and white squares in old kitchens. They are now a beautiful, lifeproof option for busy families and households. No matter what type fits your budget and needs, you’ll find an excellent choice for your home.
