I know — that it sounds crazy, right? Gorgeous vinyl flooring? Seems unlikely, but I’m afraid it may be true. Actually, not afraid, delighted! Vinyl sheet flooring is just about the most affordable flooring option out there (on a less lovely note, the previous owner of our home thought it’d make great shower tile, too) and these designs from Earthscapes add the element of beauty, something we frugal homeowners can appreciate! And at prices as low as $2.38/sq.ft, we can afford to replace our existing atrocious vinyl floors now, while we save up for a higher-end material later. Professional flooring forums have given the product and its 20-year warranty generally favorable reviews, but read them all anyway if you’re interested in installing these floors yourself. Find the designs shown and many more at Carpet One. — Megan B.
