    Hi,
    I am planning to redo my flat. It has old-fashioned ceramic tiles as flooring. I am thinking of laying vinyl sheets on it to give a better look and my budget is limited. I just wonder how good and reliable is vinyl flooring in terms of maintenance, reliability and price. Please suggest. Thanks.
