Linoleum or vinyl?

i dunno. it really doesn't matter. i just need something over the OSB subfloor before i put the washer so that it's not a bare floor. the most minimalist solution. what do you recommend?

Vinyl is easier to handle and cheaper. Just glue it down.

Fiberglass sheet flooring. Easiest type of vinyl sheet goods to deal with.

Like any flooring, it has it's pluses and minuses.

The only one I'm aware of is more expensive glue.

Then you haven't installed a lot of it. I have installed hundreds of yards of it. The washer/dryer sitting on it can be a problem.
