Sheet Vinyl vs. Linoleum

When it comes to choosing flooring for your home or business, the options can seem endless. Two popular choices that often come up in discussions are sheet vinyl and linoleum. At Avalon Wood Flooring, with over 60 years of experience in the flooring industry, we understand the importance of selecting the right flooring material that meets both aesthetic and practical needs.

What is Sheet Vinyl?

Sheet vinyl is a synthetic flooring material that comes in large, continuous sheets. It's known for its affordability, durability, and ease of maintenance. Sheet vinyl is available in a wide range of designs, mimicking natural materials like wood, stone, and tile. Modern advancements in manufacturing have also made sheet vinyl more resilient and resistant to stains and moisture, making it suitable for various rooms, including kitchens and bathrooms.

Exploring Linoleum

Linoleum, on the other hand, is a natural flooring material made primarily from linseed oil, pine resin, wood flour, and other natural materials. This eco-friendly composition makes linoleum biodegradable and recyclable, appealing to environmentally-conscious consumers. Linoleum is appreciated for its durability and longevity, often lasting decades when properly cared for. It comes in sheets or tiles and offers a natural, matte finish that can add warmth to any space.
