It can be tempting to think that sheet vinyl and linoleum are the same because sheet flooring can be so reminiscent of the sheet flooring you may have seen in a parent’s or grandparent’s home. However, these two products are only vaguely similar, and we’re going to tell you why.
Sheet vinyl has changed over the years
One of the essential differences between linoleum and sheet vinyl is that linoleum is an all-natural material. Linoleum is made from linseed oil, pine rosin, wood flour, and more, so the coloring goes clear to the backing material.
Sheet vinyl, on the other hand, is made purely of synthetic materials and consists of several layers, creating stability, functionality, and impressive durability. A wear layer works to prevent scratches, stains, scuffs, and more, while its seamless nature offers a kind of waterproof ability, as long as spills or moisture do not penetrate around the edges of the flooring.
Sheet vinyl now has more resilience than ever, which means it offers a more comfortable step and a warmer surface to the touch, even in winter weather. The visual options are just as impressive, featuring appearance options that are never broken up by a seam line.
