Question re pricing on resilient flooring

I have a kitchen-pantry and small bath to refloor.

Also a garage and breezeway that has been enclosed and is living space.

Altogether, I estimate about 644 SF. My estimate, not a pros.

I have been looking at sheet vinyls. Would it be smarter to go for planks to cut down on waste?

Or just have a pro come out and measure and give the pros and cons?

I can see that the kitchen has vinyl that came in 6' so there are seams.

I was told by one store that 6' is only sold for commercial installations now.

6 foot is available in several lines of regular vinyl as well. Cuts down on waste in smaller areas like bathrooms. I'd have a professional come out and give you estimates on sheet goods versus planks or tiles. Planks/Tiles can save you on materials but often requires more extensive subfloor prep, so they may not be that much cheaper if any. Try to find a reputable store or installer to come out and look at it. Hopefully you can find a few that give free estimates.

I watched two guys put in the laminate in my 15 by 30 foot LR plus hallway.

Very labor intensive.

That's why I have been leaning towards the sheet vinyl given the size of the area.

My bathroom to be done next is the size of a power room so I think there'll be a remnant that should fit.

Also enough left to do the small laundry room.
