The most resilient flooring available today is vinyl flooring. It is easy on the budget, low maintenance, and durable. Vinyl tile has more texture and depth than it did when you were a kid. Vinyl looks like stone, tile, or hardwood.
Vinyl tile is available in an array of colors. It is so comfortable underfoot that you can stand on it for long periods. Vinyl feels warmer than tile surfaces. It is available in a variety of gloss finishes. A range of looks are at your disposal.
Vinyl flooring has four layers:
- Protective urethane top coat
- Protective clear vinyl layer
- Printed design layer
- Fiberglass or felt backing
It is available in planks and tiles. It can be laid in orientations that vary from diagonal to checkerboard. Some vinyl tile is grouted for a more realistic appearance and performs better than lower quality vinyl tile.
Vinyl planks are designed to resemble hardwood. Vinyl comes in the same sizes as wood planks. Vinyl planks have realistic features like beveled edges and texturing.
