Vinyl Tile Flooring:
Vinyl tile flooring is available in a variety of sizes, and typically has a stone or ceramic tile look. Sizes are usually 12-inch or 18-inch squares. Because the tiles are laid individually, replacing damaged tiles is easy. Self-adhesive tiles are the easiest to install.
Vinyl Plank Flooring:
Vinyl plank flooring is an affordable and durable option if you are after a wood flooring look. Plank sizes can range from 6-inches to 18-inches, and 36-in or 48-inch lengths. Plank flooring is waterproof, however gaps should be sealed to ensure moisture does not seep through.
Vinyl Sheet Flooring:

Typically this option is available in 12-foot widths, it is then cut to the length you need. Sheet flooring is available in a variety of looks from fun geometric tiles to dark hardwood.
