Vinyl and linoleum flooring are top choices for homeowners who want a fresh look at a reasonable cost. The most popular kitchen flooring of any material, vinyl sheet flooring is available in a wide spectrum of colors and patterns.
In the last decade, a newer product known as luxury vinyl flooring has gained enthusiastic fans. Made in tiles or planks, it is thicker and more durable than sheet vinyl, though luxury vinyl cost more per square foot. Our vinyl flooring guides cover both materials, designating them as vinyl or vinyl sheet flooring for the more common type and luxury vinyl flooring for the newer material.
There are fewer linoleum options than there are for vinyl sheet flooring, but that is changing as consumers rediscover this environmentally friendly floorcovering which dates to the late 19th century.
