When vinyl flooring was first introduced at 1933s Century of Progress Exposition in Chicago, it was greeted with positive reviews but little excitement. Even though it could look like more expensive floor coverings without the price, it did not become popular until the 1940s following World War II. In the 1960s, technological advances made the flooring even better and more popular today, and its popularity has remained to this day.
Building supply stores
You will be able to find a range of vinyl flooring at building supply stores. This cheap flooring can resemble real oak floors and bamboo flooring and cost less than both materials. The rolls will include Armstrong vinyl flooring, as well as other names. The thickness may be thinner than more expensive rolls of vinyl flooring. They may still have no-wax finishes and a variety of patterns. If you are fortunate, you may be able to buy the thicker, better quality vinyl flooring on sale.
At a flooring store, you will be able to choose from a wide variety of vinyl flooring of various qualities. Due to the fact that the flooring store will be able to focus on flooring, it can afford to have a specialised inventory rather than a little of everything to appeal to all. The breadth of the flooring styles will range from vinyl that looks like wood, tile, stone, concrete and even bamboo. You may even be able to find some cheap nearly room-sized rugs that you can lay on top of the vinyl flooring in the way of a Turkish rug on a wood floor and still spend less money than at a building supply store. If you have a small room, you may be able to buy a partial roll at a discount, which can save you evenmore money.
Commercial flooring store
Armstrong is one of the vinyl flooring makers which has a commercial flooring store that offers engineered flooring ranging from linoleum, vinyl, fibre-bonded, DLW Sports and DLW Delifol. The flooring at the commercial store is meant for commercial applications such as hospitals, schools, retail, and, at the extreme, for heavy traffic areas (fibreboard). You may be able to get a discount on the vinyl flooring, or the other flooring offered in commercial flooring stores - especially when you have a lot of square-footage that has to be covered. Contact Armstrong or other commercial flooring details for more information.
