The vinyl everyone is familiar with is the sheet good product -- linoleum. This product was invented in 1845 and remained popular throughout WWII.
The sheet good vinyl still exists, but it has come a long way since its humble beginnings. With new technology making it sturdier, and resistant against curling, linoleum is no longer the flooring it used to be.
Vinyl also can refer to planks and tiles that have become popular in recent years. This product clicks together, coming in pieces like hardwood, and advertises a sturdy, modern look and feel. This product can take many different forms, making it a versatile choice for your home.
