Like most things, sheet vinyl has moved with the times; no longer just available in large sheets or rolls, vinyl floor tiles are one of the latest products to hit the flooring industry. Durable, affordable, and easy to clean, they maintain many of the original benefits of vinyl flooring – but with a number of additional advantages. For example, vinyl tiles and lino tiles will fit any room, they can be laid in any direction and they can be mixed and matched to create a completely customised floor.
Perfect for areas that would be otherwise off-limits, vinyl floor tiles often mimic the appearance of natural materials (such as wood or stone) and they come in a variety of colours and patterns that wouldn’t be possible with larger sheets. Installation depends upon the type of vinyl or lino tiles that are used, whether that be fully-adhesive dryback tiles or tacked looselay tiles. They are all designed to provide heat insulation, reduce excessive noise, and maximise surface wear; but, if one tile was to get damaged, it’s easy enough to repair. Simply remove the one tile and replace it!

With the appropriate care and maintenance, vinyl flooring shouldn’t scratch easily.
However, vinyl floors aren’t indestructible and may become damaged over time – especially if you’re shuffling heavy pieces of furniture across the room.
If water accumulates beneath the floor, or pools on the surface, it can cause it to lift and bubble.
Bear in mind that shoes are common culprits for scratching floors. Without realising, you could walk debris in (i.e. stones or glass) on the bottom of your soles, which can leave a nasty scratch on vinyl tiles.
Though you could rub over the scratch mark or remove deep scuffs with special cleaning products – a major benefit of installing vinyl tile flooring is that, if you spot any damages, you can replace the affected tiles separately.
Vinyl tiles are a quick and inexpensive way to renovate floors – requiring just a few basic skills and tools.
Some vinyl tiles are self-adhesive, meaning all you need to do is peel the backing off and stick them down. Others are installed using adhesive, ensuring a secure fit and minimal movement.
Regardless of whether you’ll be installing self-adhesive vinyl tiles or using adhesive, the first step is to prepare the subfloor. This includes sweeping away any dirt and debris, repairing cracks on concrete floors, levelling the existing floor or removing ceramic floor tiles.
Once you’ve prepared the floor for vinyl tiles, the next thing to do is grab your tape measure and plan your layout. Depending on whether your tiles are self-adhesive, you’ll either have to apply the adhesive or lay the tiles, starting from the middle of the room and working your way outwards to create a stunning pattern.
