which type vinyl to use?


i am undecided on whether to go with vinyl plank or sheet vinyl. I have the ability to install either one. It is for a basement suite kitchen on concrete floor. There are no pets/children and the kitchen will be used very little.

We plan on putting down a 3/8 subfloor (to prevent cold). I like the idea of rolling out the vinyl sheet and being done with it. Is one preffered to use than the other?

I am using ikea cabinets which have legs on them. Is it ok for the sheet stuff to be under the legs? second question, does anything need to be put down around the perimeter (example, double sided tape)? Thanks for any help

Sheet vinyl would be best.
Most plank failures are on concrete. IVC is good to loose lay or glue down.

so we bought the floating type vinyl. I read that the cabinets are not supposed to sit on it. My cabinets have round feet underneath (not a wood type platform/frame). Is this still an issue? What about the fridge? Do i cut out around it?
