4. Soft and Comfortable

Resilient Vinyl is flexible and softer to walk on.
“Although vinyl can give a look similar to tile or hardwood, it is much softer underfoot, thanks to its felt or foam backing. That ‘give’ provides a comfortable surface, which is particularly helpful in bathrooms where slip-and-fall accidents are common on wet floors. The softer surface also provides sound insulation and allows vinyl to stand up well to foot traffic.” (BHG).

  1. Hi Janet, yes you can! A ceramic subfloor should be treated in the same manner as a concrete subfloor, with a few additional considerations. Please search "vinyl installation" on our Flooring 101 page for detailed directions. Thanks for your inquiry! -Lumber Liquidators
