Yes, sheet vinyl is very popular for a variety of reasons. However, modern homes typically install sheet vinyl in rooms where carpet and wood shouldn’t be: kitchens and bathrooms. Sheet vinyl is impervious to standing water. The higher quality sheet vinyl products are being installed in dining rooms, family rooms, and even some living rooms. However, as the price goes up wood and carpet are comparable in price and frequently win out depending on the room’s function and traffic.
If possible, select a sheet vinyl pattern that is symmetrical so it can be turned either way to reduce waste. In addition, remember that you can easily seam two sheets of vinyl to minimize waste or to make installation easier by purchasing smaller rolls.
