Vinyl flooring is available in both tiles and sheets, and the material is best applied to a subfloor that is very smooth and level. Maintenance on vinyl tile is relatively easy, and the material is highly resistant to scrapes and wear patterns. Because it can withstand a lot of punishment, vinyl is often requested in high-traffic areas, like kitchens and playrooms. In the event that the vinyl tile is damaged, it is easily removed in small sections and replaced if matching material is available. Sheet vinyl is also an excellent choice for wet areas or homes that are prone to subfloor movement. In general, vinyl’s low cost, ease of installation, and variety of colors and patterns make it an excellent choice for high design on a budget.
