Vinyl flooring is often called linoleum but they are completely different materials, though just as durable. Vinyl came into style after linoleum because of the translucency and brightness that allows for a broader spectrum of colors. But vinyl flooring has several other benefits, as well.

  • Non-reactive surface can handle any type of cleaner
  • Vinyl contains a fiberglass layer, adding strength and cushion to the floor
  • Easier to install than linoleum
