Vinyl flooring materials have been common in the flooring industry for decades now in their sheet form, but in recent years the improvement of vinyl plank and tile flooring make it a viable water resistant option. Here, we asked Jimmy Tiganella, owner of Classic Tile in Oakville, Connecticut, to demonstrate how to install a long-lasting vinyl tile floor, a job that starts with covering the old floor with plywood underlayment. Laminate tiles are very popular because they are less expensive and will give you warmer, more comfortable feel underfoot. Easy to install, super durable and with the newest technology looks like a million bucks!
And with the newest printing technology – laminate tile flooring looks like natural stone floor. And is available in a variety of styles and colors- from classic to exotic look offering expensive wood look and affordable price. Vinyl flooring has traditionally been the flooring of choice in kitchens, for years. Laminate flooring has quickly became a favorite of many homeowners, as you can have the look of cherry, maple, oak, and even an exotic look; without the cost and maintenance of hardwood.
The reason being, in order to repair that slice, the whole roll of vinyl will need to be replaced. The beauty of laminate flooring is the fact that only a portion of flooring would need to be pulled up and replaced. And from a realistic point of view, most laminate flooring would be resistant to a knife being dropped onto the flooring. Lengthwise patterns add depth to rooms, while running the flooring across the width of a room will make the space look shorter and wider. Don’t feel that all wood elements in a roomm must match exactly- actually the oposite is true. For a spectacular effect go with a very light colored floor tones- laminate tiles floors are great option here.
