Quite often when customers hear about sheet vinyl, they think of decades old kitchens. Things have changed and technology has advanced, allowing the creation of vinyl sheets with visuals so realistic they can be mistaken for real hardwood or stone floors. Sheet vinyl usually comes in 12-foot-wide rolls and leaves almost no seams depending on how much you need for your room. “Natural realism” is a popular trend for vinyl sheet flooring, homeowners want to capture the look and feel of stone or hardwood, but also have the easy maintenance of vinyl.
WPC flooring is short for wood plastic composite, but is commonly called waterproof core flooring. Both are fitting names seeing as these floors are definitely waterproof. These specialty luxury vinyl floors are perfect for your whole home. You can have the traditional look of wood without the maintenance, and it is also popular in commercial spaces. Typically, all WPC products will be considered luxury vinyl tiles or luxury vinyl planks, but not all luxury vinyl is WPC.
