For decades homeowners have chosen vinyl flooring for its durability and affordability. While it is versatile enough be used in many spaces, it is often selected for kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms and drop zones. Vinyl is also a choice for areas in your home that are below grade, such as a basement.

From a design perspective there are options available that look like stone, wood, slate or tile. Vinyl flooring can be installed in several different ways, largely dependent of the exact material you choose. There are three main types on the market to compare for your space:

Roll Vinyl – Also referred to as sheet vinyl, this product is installed in large sections from a single roll. Generally this is considered a more budget-friendly selection. One advantage of this style is there are less seams for water to get into. Because it is a single sheet and is cut around objects and walls, focusing on minimizing waste is important, and often requires the help of a professional.

Vinyl Tiles – As the name indicates, this vinyl flooring comes in individual tiles, and usually look like a tile or stone product. They come individually, are sized like tile and must be placed one at a time. One feature of this flooring that appeals is the ability to replace a single tile if it becomes damaged or stained over time.

Vinyl Planks – These are similar to vinyl tiles, installed in much smaller sections than a sheet product. Often these look like wood flooring, and are a long, narrow product opposed to a square tile. You’ll want to verify if the product you are looking at is designed to be a floating floor or requires adhesive.

There are basic options, luxury options and many choices in between, as well as different levels of quality and durability. Ask our flooring professionals which products would work best in your home. In the Tulsa area OK Flooring Outlet offers a large selection of vinyl flooring to choose from, some starting as low as $0.49 per square foot.
