Vynil Plank

Types of Vinyl Floor

While the demand for the Vinyl remains high, the challenge for many homeowners is differentiating the different types of Vinyl-Vinyl Plank from Vinyl Sheet or Luxury Vinyl Tile and identifying the best type of Vinyl for the home.

This Guide helps you understand the different types of Vinyl floor.

Waterproof Vinyl Plank

Otherwise known as the luxury vinyl plank (LVP) or just vinyl plank, vinyl plank comes in woodlike planks. It is also highly water resistant and easy to install as compared to the Vinyl sheet. Replacing or maintaining luxury vinyl plank is also very easy as you can easily remove a damaged piece with another without entirely needing to remove the whole floor.

Vinyl Sheet

Made of very similar material as the vinyl plank, vinyl sheet is a non-rigid sheetlike vinyl flooring material that is installed as a whole or single piece. Vinyl sheet is also water resistant and very durable. One of the drawbacks of the vinyl sheet is that you will likely need to remove the whole floor is a part of it is damaged, unlike the vinyl plank. The sheet vinyl is glued to the floor during installation.

Luxury Vinyl Tile

Other known as vinyl tile or waterproof vinyl tile, this is the type of vinyl that comes in square and looks exactly like ceramic tiles. It is also water resistant and does not scratch easily. You will likely need the help of an installer to help with the installation of the vinyl tile. The vinyl tile is also very easy to maintain and comes in gorgeous natural colors and surface texture that feels like real tiles.

How to Choose Vinyl

The second most common challenge for many after understanding the different types of vinyl is how to choose vinyl floors.

There are three basic ways of choosing the right type of vinyl floor for your house, which are:

Thickness of the Vinyl

This is when you base your choice on the with of the vinyl. When choosing by thickness, then you should opt for the thickness of at least 2mm.

Comparing Wear Layers

This is when you choose your vinyl base on its wear layer.

Selecting the Color and Width

Vinyl comes in a variety of beautiful colors and designs. You can make your pick also by the color.

In general, you want to go for a colorful vinyl that is at least 2mm thick with a wear layer of at least 10mil.

Properties of Vinyl Floors


Water resistant

The biggest advantage or reason why many choose vinyl for their homes is because vinyl flooring is water resistant. The sheet vinyl takes this to a whole different level because it is usually laid without having grooves, unlike tiles. In other words, there is nowhere water can pass through to damage the floor.


Scratch Resistant

Not only are Vinyl floors waterproof but also they scratch resistant. Regardless of the type of Vinyl floor, you have installed in your home-luxury vinyl plank, luxury vinyl tile, or vinyl sheet, they have very high resistant to scratch. This is mostly because of how they are processed.



Vinyl floor comes in different designs and styles. The vinyl plank comes in woodlike or planklike designs and shapes, while the luxury vinyl tiles come in squares with a luxury feel. The sheet vinyl also comes in a variety of patterns, colors, and designs. Whatever your design needs or expectations are, vinyl has something for you.



Vinyl floors are known for the ease of maintenance. For example, changing or replacing a vinyl plank floor or vinyl tile floor is as easy and seamless. You can do this either by yourself or with the help of a professional technician. NB: Vinyl sheet can be a bit pricy to maintain. This is because you will need to remove the entire sheet in case of small damage or scratch.


Easy Installation

Vinyl floors are easy to install either by yourself or by a technician and you can easily install your flooring in a day or two.



The main reason why tile vinyl is chosen by many is because it can mimic a variety of other expensive flooring types such as ceramic tiles, hardwood floor, and stone floor. Vinyl gives you the opportunity to give your home that luxurious feel it deserves only at a fraction of cost.
