Which Type of Vinyl Flooring to Consider?
The vinyl comes in three different types including
Traditional vinyl, luxury vinyl, and hybrid vinyl. The common trait shared by all three flooring types is, they’re waterproof, durable, and easy to clean, etc. yet it varies from type to type.
Each vinyl type is made with a different structure, constitution, and so does the manufacturing process for each differs. Hence, the features they share differs to some extent
The traditional vinyl is made with soft texture with moderated backing and has soft underfoot while remaining hard and durable. The traditional vinyl often comes in sheet form for convenient installation in rooms, and they’re reasonable as well
Luxury vinyl has a variable thickness and plank forms. It carries the look of timber or natural stone which gives it a more original look
Hybrid vinyl is built for durability and impact resistance which combines the best aspects of laminate and vinyl. What distinguishes it from the above two vinyl types is, hybrid vinyl is built with a rigid limestone core. This makes hybrid vinyl very strong and long-lasting besides the realistic look of the luxury planks
Vinyl sheets or planks?

The advantage comes when a stone look or timber prints don’t appear as realistic as planks. However, it provides an appealing look for people who aren’t must inspire to fake a natural wood/stone floor cover.
On other hand, vinyl plank takes more time to install as it has to be placed in juxtaposition with each piece – in other words, piece by piece. However, the vinyl plank has a visual appearance for those who need a natural stone look.
