Versatile Vinyl

If you thought vinyl flooring only came in sheets, you’re in for a pleasant surprise. Vinyl has come a long way since those lengths of speckled linoleum that papered Grandma’s kitchen floor in the 1940s. One glance through your local flooring retailer’s gallery gives you a peek into its versatility. Whether your heart yearns for terra-cotta tiles to accent a new Tuscan kitchen or for the weathered barn-wood look in a country home, vinyl flooring has you covered.

Patterned or Plain

Plain vinyl flooring has no pattern manufactured into the product. This vinyl flooring type you see in many commercial applications such as in doctor and dentist offices. Patterned vinyl is more suitable for home renovation purposes. The pattern on vinyl flooring may be either inlaid — where the color is injected into the vinyl sheet — or printed, where designs are applied onto the surface of the vinyl then covered with your finish of choice. Inlaid vinyl is more durable and often pricier than printed versions.

Inexpensive Options

Vinyl flooring gives homeowners a viable option when desiring to create a high-end look without the price tag that usually comes with it.
