The benefits of a grey vinyl floor
Grey vinyl is perfect for homes which may be prone to mess. The colour ensures any dirt or marks aren’t visible and the water-resistant properties of vinyl mean it won’t undergo damage from spills. For this reason, this type of flooring is suitable for any room in the house, especially rooms with high moisture levels. For example, grey vinyl floor tiles are both stunning and practical in the bathroom or kitchen.
As well as the look and resilience, vinyl flooring also offers some cushioning underfoot, making it a comfortable flooring solution. It’s also one of the most affordable types of flooring, so it is perfect if you’re on a budget but still want a high-quality floor.
Choosing your grey vinyl flooring
No matter what your style or your budget, there is a range of products to suit your home. Grey wood effect lino is perfect for rooms where you’d like to achieve a rustic wooden look. Light grey vinyl flooring may be best suited to smaller rooms, as the light hue helps the space to appear more open. Dark grey vinyl flooring, on the other hand, works well in larger rooms and rooms particularly prone to mess or dirt, as the dark colour helps disguise nay marks.
What is the difference between linoleum and vinyl?
Lino and vinyl are often synonymous and have many similarities. For example, like vinyl grey lino flooring is also resilient and can come in either a tile or wood effect. However, the main difference is the materials used to create this flooring. For example, grey lino is made from natural materials, such as cork or oils. Grey vinyl, however, is made from synthetic materials, including PVC. This makes vinyl the slightly cheaper option.
Do I need underlay for vinyl flooring?
Vinyl is one of the easiest types of flooring to install and usually comes in a sheet. To install simply clean and prepare your subfloor, then lay the vinyl sheet. Underlay is not needed for this type of flooring, because vinyl provides its own cushioning and is not at risk of moving around. For this reason, the vinyl sheet can be installed as a ‘floating floor’ meaning you simply lay the vinyl without sticking it down. If you’d like a little more security or if you have a larger room, use double-sided adhesive tape or glue.

Can you lay vinyl over laminate?
Laying vinyl over laminate or tiles isn’t recommended, and it’s best to work directly from the subfloor. This is because, although vinyl is water resistant, the flooring underneath may not be and it could become damp or mouldy.
