Finding the perfect flooring for your home or business space requires a mix of functional understanding, consideration of presentation and aesthetics, the value and durability of your floor in relation to your budget, and of course how easy it is to install.

Sheet vinyl flooring is one such solution which is becoming increasingly popular – heralded for its easy installation and the literally seamless finish it provides to any interior space, regardless of your chosen design.

So, how does sheet vinyl flooring work, what are its benefits to homeowners and interior decorators, and what is it actually made of? Let’s take a closer look.

What is sheet vinyl flooring?

Sheet vinyl flooring is like a standard vinyl flooring option, but instead of being sold and installed as tiles it is cut as a single length from a roll of your chosen flooring type and design.

The structure of sheet vinyl flooring includes a PVC plastic core, with felt or foam backing on the underside and a printed design finish on the topside – with a layer of durable and scratch resistant sealing material on the top to keep the design safe from damage.

As well as being able to give you any design finish and aesthetic that you want, sheet vinyl flooring is characterised by its flexibility as a material, and its ability to be cut to any length, size, or shape required. With that said, what are the other benefits of sheet vinyl flooring which makes it a standout solution for both residential and commercial / office clients?

The benefits of sheet vinyl flooring

First thing’s first, boasting a solid and durable structure which can be cut to any shape or size, sheet vinyl flooring is one of the most versatile flooring solutions currently available. Offering a seamless finish regardless of your space, the size of the room, or the type of aesthetic finish you want, not only is sheet vinyl an easy floor to install but it is also water resistant – with the lack of lots of edges and seams meaning that any minor spills can be mopped up and away from the surface without causing lasting damage.

Having said that, buyers should note that sheet vinyl is not completely waterproof and large spillages can cause the edges of your flooring to curl if left untreated.

Another key benefit of sheet vinyl flooring is the wide array of finished and aesthetic designs you can get – from wooden floor finishes to stone floors, intricate tile designs and so much more. This is all made possible because of the high quality, photographic-quality visual layer which is installed as the finish on your flooring.

Other benefits include:

  • Easy to install, with our team able to loose-lay your chosen sheet vinyl or stick it down with an adhesive substance for optimum stability and security.
  • Easy to maintain, with the smooth finish of sheet vinyl flooring making it very easy to hoover and wipe down for optimum cleanliness.
  • Resilient and durable against minor spills, wear and tear.
  • Cost effective, offering a visually pleasing alternative to more expensive flooring types like tiles, hardwood floor, carpet, and stone flooring.

In short, sheet vinyl flooring is a versatile, functional, and stylish way of laying a new floor – with the seamless structure of a single strip of flooring alleviating the need for complex layering and maintaining the structural integrity of multiple tiles on an even surface. But is it the right option for you?
