Vinyl floors are often used in kitchens and baths because of their good looks, resistance to moisture and wide variety of colors and textures.
These floors are relatively easy to keep clean. Their main enemy is grit or sand that can be ground into the surface. (Don’t worry, we’ll tell you how to maintain them in the Maintenance section.)
No matter which vinyl floor you choose, you will find stylish options, high performance and you can completely customize your floor by mixing contrasting colors, patchwork style, creating medallions or curved cuts that express your unique vision and personality. Let your imagination run free!
Now, some resilient floors are vinyl but not all vinyl floors are resilient. However, the most common type of resilient flooring is vinyl. There are two types of vinyl flooring: sheet vinyl and luxury vinyl tile (LVT). LVT has all the advantages of vinyl, is available in a wide array of colors and can look good anywhere.
No other floor covering category offers you the selection, styling, ease of maintenance and value as a vinyl floor! Thanks to some great advances in styling and technology, vinyl floors have been changed forever. Vinyl flooring can now realistically mimic the look and textures of real ceramic, stone and wood grain patterns. These amazing replicas have such incredible realism it is difficult for most people to tell whether it's the real thing or not. Who needs to know, right? Finally, a note about linoleum, which is not a resilient flooring but the one you probably recall as the original kitchen and bath flooring. While linoleum is enjoying somewhat of a renaissance, the most popular floor covering material in this category is vinyl.
