Vinyl flooring is a type of floor covering that is made of polyvinyl chloride. It is similar to linoleum, but it is not the original linoleum product. Vinyl can be applied to any floor surface, although it is typically used in kitchens and bathrooms. There are two pattern types available: printed and inlaid. Printed vinyl is cheaper than inlaid vinyl flooring, and it is not as durable. Inlaid vinyl costs more, but it is superior in quality. There are limitless patterns available. Overall, it is an inexpensive product and easy to maintain, but vinyl cannot be polished and it can lose its luster over time. It is good for homes and everyday use, but it is not a good option for heavy traffic.
