Why choose vinyl flooring?

There are several reasons to choose vinyl flooring. First, its lower price can save homeowners big bucks. Second, vinyl flooring can be very comfortable and safe for children. It’s part of the “resilient” flooring category, meaning its soft composition has a little “give” when walked on. Third, vinyl floors are waterproof and highly durable, withstanding all kinds of spills, stains, and wear. And fourth, vinyl is available in a multitude of colors and patterns, giving homeowners tons of options to match their current décor.

What is vinyl tile?

Vinyl tile is vinyl flooring cut into large squares that emulate real tile flooring. The squares are often about 12”-by-12” and are classified as either solid vinyl tile or luxury vinyl tile (LVT). Both have similar characteristics but LVT offers incredible 3D printing technology to display a massive variety of patterns. LVT can be virtually indistinguishable from real stone or ceramic tile flooring.

What is sheet vinyl?

Sheet vinyl can offer the same realistic images as luxury vinyl tile, but is not cut into squares. Instead, sheet vinyl is one continuous sheet cut to fit your entire space. Some homeowners prefer sheet vinyl because it has far fewer seams than vinyl tiles. However, it can be difficult to install and is best left to the professionals here at Floor Coverings International Intown Atlanta.
