Retro vinyl sheet flooring really does blend the latest trends in flooring: vintage patterns, affordability, and a waterproof build. Here, we’ll briefly explore the trends fueling the vinyl sheet craze.
Retro Vinyl Sheet Flooring Patterns
Yes, cost is probably the defining attribute that makes vinyl sheet so popular. However, there’s a close second that’s related more to style: patterns. Indeed, it is the patterns of retro vinyl sheet floors is what really sets them apart. These distinctive geometric shapes remind us of an older time, yet still manage to blend seamlessly with modern decor. Typically, each shape combines with others to compliment their own style while also creating unique sub-patterns. Here’s an example:
Here, we see four-sided oval shapes bearing a passing resemblance to four-leaf clovers. Yet every four connections also form an octagonal pattern. These designs can become quite intricate while still maintaining a cohesive pattern.
The encaustic aesthetic has been trending for centuries and shows no signs of slowing down. Even better, modern flooring innovations allow these designs to appear in more affordable and versatile flooring options. For example, our Retro Vision Flooring Destination features these designs in waterproof – and affordable – sheet vinyl. Each Retro Vision Flooring line offers more versatility than authentic encaustic tiles and costs less to purchase. Even better, modern sheet vinyl is designed to mimic both the look and feel of authentic tiles.
As flooring continues to benefit the performance of flooring, there is a growing trend towards waterproof floors – and a growing supply. Sheet vinyl is naturally waterproof, making it a great choice for kitchens and bathrooms. Our own Retro Vision Vinyl Sheet Flooring also comes with the Never Yellow Promise, regardless of its exposure to moisture.
