Resilient floors have some elasticity when you walk across them. Resilient floors are often used in kitchens and baths or other wet areas because of their good looks, resistance to moisture and wide variety of colors and textures. No matter which resilient floor you choose, you will find stylish options, high performance and tremendous value. These floors are relatively easy to keep clean. Their biggest enemy is grit or sand that can be ground into the surface.
You can customize your floor by mixing contrasting colors patchwork style, creating medallions
or curved cuts that express your unique vision and personality.
Let your imagination run free!
Some resilient floors are vinyl but not all vinyl floors are resilient. However, the most common type of resilient flooring is vinyl, which is why most of the sections in this part of our website are labeled Vinyl. There are two types of vinyl flooring: sheet vinyl and luxury vinyl tile (LVT). For our purposes we will refer to sheet vinyl simply as vinyl, or vinyl flooring.

Spare luxury vinyl tiles can be kept on hand to repair worn areas. It is installed with a pressure
sensitive releasable adhesive, making repairs or replacement a piece of cake.
Vinyl flooring also offers you many tempting advantages as well. In fact, no other floor covering category offers you the selection, styling, ease of maintenance and value as a vinyl floor! Vinyl flooring can now realistically mimic the look and texture of real ceramic, stone and wood grain patterns. These amazing replicas have such incredible realism, it is difficult for most people
to tell whether it’s the real thing or not. Who needs to know, anyway?
Finally, a note about linoleum, which is not a resilient floor, but the one you might remember as
the original kitchen and bath flooring. While linoleum is enjoying somewhat of a resurgence of popularity, the most popular floor covering material in this category is vinyl.
