Types of vinyl flooring
If you make vinyl your choice, you must then decide on which type to run with.
Vinyl flooring comes in two variables – vinyl sheeting and vinyl tiles (or planks).
Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) / Luxury Vinyl Plank (LVP)
Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) is designed to look and feel like ceramic tile flooring. Whilst Luxury Vinyl Planks (LVP) are made to look like hardwood floorboards.
They look amazing, and really do present the illusion that you really have wooden floorboards or tiled floors. You can also choose between either the rigid or flexible types of LVT.
It’s incredibly easy to install, given its modular format. In fact, a room could even be renovated without having to remove the furniture inside of it!
Sheet vinyl is manufactured in 6- or 12-foot, cut to measurements required by the customer.
The width of this product actually allows for entire rooms to be covered with little to no seams at all. It’s a fibreglass, cushion backed style of flooring, which comes in many designs, ranging from classic to funky, modern styles.
Sheet vinyl is not only one of the most affordable flooring solutions for your home, but it’s also one of the best flooring materials for repelling water, making it absolutely perfect for kitchen, dining or laundry areas.
However, where LVT is easily done by a DIY’er, sheet vinyl usually needs to be installed by professionals.
