Why you’ll change your mind about sheet vinyl flooring

Sheet vinyl and composite tiles are versions of the original standard vinyl that came to the US market in the 1930s. It was highly praised for its durability, high water resistance, easy-care, and affordability. Today, thanks to modern technology, we can add one more adjective to describe it: stylish.

Vinyl sheets come in six-foot or 12-foot rolls, cut to whatever amount is needed by the consumer. The composite tiles are cut into smaller square pieces. Each is preferred for different installations: Sheet vinyl works well with other patterns, as long as they don’t repeat. It’s also a popular choice for wet rooms like the bath because the “no seams” results in a better moisture barrier. On the other hand, some prefer the tiles because they feel the seams add to the realism.

Sheet vinyl is glue-down; the composite tiles are either of a peel and stick version or can also be glued down. Sheet vinyl can also be loose lay, hovering over the subfloor but without the locking mechanism.

Affordable style

Vinyl floors are incredible mimics of wood, stone, or tile. Images are taken with 3D photography, so they are clear and vibrant; you’ll see raised grains, swirls, and color/veining variations. It’s also available in a wide variety of other patterns from florals, chevrons, hexagons, herringbones, and the most complex geographics. The image is protected by a top transparent wear layer, making it impossible to wear or fade it. Be sure to ask your vinyl flooring retailer to show you samples.

Is it the same as luxury vinyl flooring?

No. This isn’t to be confused with other versions like luxury or waterproof vinyl, and that’s where a lot of the confusion comes in. While they all offer extreme durability, the standard sheet is somewhat thinner and has a different core, PVC plastic. That is opposed to vinyl composites, WPC (wood plastic composite) or SPC (stone plastic composite), cores that offer the highest water and moisture protection levels. While they both offer plenty of style, the others can be cut into planks or square, groutable tile-sized pieces.
