Vinyl has really come a long way. It's not just the sheet vinyl or those peel & stick tiles. The fastest growing segment is luxury vinyl which I know sounds like an oxymoron or a contradiction.
Luxury vinyl comes in individual planks that look like hardwood, or in tiles and grout strips for tile look. The individual pieces look and feel real - they have graining and texture variation that make it look like real hardwood, and the grooves at the edges give it real definition...in fact, so much so, that it fools many of the experts. I've had samples in my office that people in the biz did double takes on after I've pointed it out - they never would have known if I hadn't said anything.
Luxury vinyl is a great option if you need something WATERPROOF. It can be great for basements or kitchens or commercial establishments. It super easy to clean and you don't need to worry about anyone tracking in water or snow and ruining it.
Now, as the name implies, it is luxury, so it significantly more expensive than the sheet vinyl...and well worth it.
