    "You can use spreadable glue or spray glue to full fix vinyl depending on the backing. I much prefer felt back vinyl so you can spray it to the surface. Up side once it's fully fixed you shouldn't have any expansion meaning you shouldn't have any bubble as apposed to lose laying where bubbles generally appear once the vinyl has warmed and expanded. You shouldn't see any difference in durability between full fix and lose lay"

    "If it is a vinyl that needs fully sticking it will be commercial grade vinyl so very durable, advantages to this would be it will last a very long time if installed correctly and boarder line impossible to damage, downsides would be product and fitting more expensive and floor preparation is very important"

    "Luxury Vinyl Tile or Plank LVT/LVP is excellent choice of hard flooring.

    It is highly versatile. You can be as 'artistic' and fancy with it as you like.

    Keeps its appearance long term; if installed correctly and looked after.

    Extremely durable. If one plank or tile is damaged then it isn't the end of the world to take it up and replace, unlike floating floors.

    There are very few if any downsides that I can think of: the sub floor is very important to have a good installation.

    Not sure if that is a downside as such but it can mean a whole room needs to be completely empty for a smoothing compound to be laid."
