Cushioned vinyl flooring is a durable option that is available in many different varieties. It is highly durable, making it a popular option for landlords and homeowners who prioritise low maintenance flooring. It works well in spaces like hallways, kitchens and living spaces. Unlike wooden flooring or vinyl tiles, it has a highly cushioned backing that makes it feel warm and soft underfoot.

Cushioned vinyl might also be known as sheet vinyl, as it is one long piece of material. It offers excellent value for money and sits at a lower price point than luxury vinyl tiles. It doesn’t look like traditional vinyl – it is available in a range of finishes, such as wood or tiled effect.

What exactly is cushioned vinyl?

Cushioned vinyl is a manmade material consisting of ethylene and chlorine These form Polyvinyl Chloride resin – PVC – also known as vinyl. The vinyl comes in one long sheet, unlike Luxury Vinyl Tiles. It uses print processes that create sophisticated designs, so your vinyl flooring can be made to look like wood, stone, tiles, or any number of natural finishes. The cushioned base of the vinyl means that you shouldn’t need to use an underlay with it.

How is cushioned vinyl fitted?

Vinyl flooring comes in one long sheet, which can make fitting trickier. However, when fitted professionally, this will give the flooring a smooth, seamless finish – it just needs to be installed by the right people.

We are flooring installation professionals with years of experience behind us. Here is how we will fit your vinyl flooring:

  • We will visit your property to measure up.

    If you want to see samples of the vinyl flooring you can have installed, we will bring these to the appointment.

  • We provide a full consultation.

    We ensure we understand exactly what you need. We will check the quality of floorboards and subflooring to make sure vinyl can be laid onto it and, if required, we will plan in time for screeding or ply boarding.

  • Your estimate will be with you within 48 hours.

    If you are considering various options, we will add in prices for them all.

  • We will confirm your order.

    From now on, the price is confirmed so you know exactly how much the project will cost.

  • Fitting will be booked in for a time convenient for you.

    The majority of the time, this is around 7-10 days after we measure up. If required, we can also move furniture.
