Types of Vinyl Floors


Vinyl flooring has increasingly become a huge favourite by so many homeowners these days. Known for its resilience, durability, flexibility, look, waterproof ability, and affordability.

So if you are considering replacing your tired and damaged flooring, getting vinyl for your new floor will provide you with many benefits. Here is an overview of the most common types of vinyl flooring:-


Sheet Vinyl

Sheet vinyl is considered the standard type of vinyl flooring. It is available in large rolls, typically about 6 to 12 feet wide, and you will have to cut it according to your floor’s size during installation. This is the best vinyl flooring option for bathrooms and basements since there is less possibility of water seeping through it. It is also very cost-effective but still very resilient and looks great. You can also opt for a very durable sheet vinyl such as inlaid vinyl, as it is thicker and hides scratches better. Different colours and styles are available that will give off the look of wood, tiles, ceramic, and stones.


Luxury Vinyl Plank (LVP)

Another selection for luxury vinyl flooring is the luxury vinyl plank. Similar to luxury vinyl tiles, it is also rigid, durable, and flexible. Luxury vinyl planks imitate the look and texture of hardwood. Different wood grains and textures are available to choose from. The good thing about luxury vinyl planks is that it is very easy to install and maintain. It is also less expensive compared to luxury vinyl tiles.


Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT)

Luxury vinyl tile is the newest addition to vinyl flooring options available in the market today. Despite being the latest addition, it has quickly become popular with many homeowners due to its good qualities. Luxury vinyl tile flooring provides a more realistic texture with an appearance similar to the natural stone or ceramic tile, thanks to 3D imaging technology. Luxury vinyl tile flooring also comes in a variety of different colours and styles that will surely compliment any architectural home design. Though luxury vinyl tiles are the most expensive type of vinyl flooring, it is also thicker and the most durable, lasting upwards of over twenty years.
