Vinyl flooring is available in three main categories. Each of them offers high-quality products for your home and each of them comes with its own advantages and benefits. Here is a bit more about the different types of vinyl flooring in their installation:
As the name suggests, this type of flooring comes in sheets that need to be cut depending on the size and measurements of the room where installation of the floor is planned. This type of vinyl flooring is a great solution for areas of your home with higher moisture levels such as the bathroom, basement, or even the kitchen. It is a perfect solution for such rooms because the sheets are usually installed seamless, which means moisture has no place to penetrate and enter underfloor and damage the subfloor or the floor itself.

The long strips and planks of vinyl flooring can be installed in a way to absolutely mimic real wood flooring, even parquet patterns, to the tiniest detail.

Besides its great look and durability, vinyl flooring comes at a very reasonable price, so you don’t have to break the bank with real wood or natural stone flooring, which tends to be a pretty expensive choice.
