Made from a man-made synthetic called polyvinyl chloride resin, vinyl flooring can be made to mimic most floorings. You can choose from mock wooden floors to patterned tiles, or even vinyl records if you're Sarah Beeny.

Waterproof and super easy to clean, vinyl is a great flooring option in a bathroom or kitchen. Just be sure to opt for a good quality vinyl that is at least 3.5mm thick.
