Vinyl Flooring Has Come A Long Way

Vinyl Flooring has been a popular flooring choice in the residential market since the end of World War II in the end of the 1940's.

As seen in this vintage advertisement from 1956, bright colors and modern designs have been the traditional look of vinyl flooring.

Today's Vinyl Flooring is not your Grandma's flooring or even your Mother's flooring. Grouped in a newly formed category called "resilient flooring", today's vinyl flooring is manufactured with space-age materials and technology. High-resolution printing can render vinyl indistinguishable from hardwood or stone style flooring at a fraction of the cost. Or inlaid vinyl with through-color manufacturing can be used for a lifetime of wear.

Today's vinyl flooring comes as Sheet Vinyl in 12 foot wide rolls like carpet, Solid Vinyl Tile ranging in 1 to 2 foot squares, and Luxury Vinyl Tile with high-resolution printing and surface embossing to simulate natural materials such as hardwood, tile and stone.

Luxury Vinyl Tile can be used to simulate the most delicate hardwood and tile flooring with quick and easily installation at a fraction of the cost. Durable enough for commercial and residential use and versatile enough to come in a wide range of styles and colors.
