Vinyl flooring may be ideal for your home

Vinyl flooring certainly has come a long way since it came to the US market in the 1930s. Technological innovations such as digital photography, embossing, and improved seaming, together with countless functions and easy installation, make it one of the most popular floorings around. If that isn't enough, it comes in an almost unlimited variety of patterns and colors, from wood, stone, and tile look to colorful geometrics, checkerboards, herringbones, chevrons, and more.

Your options in vinyl flooring

As the name implies, vinyl sheet flooring comes in large sheets with widths of six, 12, and sometimes even 13-feet; or as vinyl composite tiles (VCT). With few, if any, seams, some find vinyl sheet to be an advantage in the bathroom because moisture can't seep through. Some also find the lack of seams to make installation easier since there are no seams to line up.

Luxury vinyl flooring (LVF) is a more advanced version of the original, being five times thicker and multi-layered. All vinyl is durable, but this can withstand the heaviest foot traffic; at the top is a robust, transparent melamine wear layer to protect the floor from scratches and scuffs. On top of that is a urethane coating that adds shine and further protection.

Easy installation

While both vinyl sheet flooring and VCT can be glued, vinyl can also be installed by the loose lay method, where the sheets hover over the subfloor without nails or glue; VCT also comes in a peel and stick version. Luxury vinyl can be installed as a floating floor, which is fast and uncomplicated, making it a favorite among installers. Here, the pieces click together, mat, and then hover over the subfloor without nails or glue.
