How long does contact paper last?

I have seen contact paper used on floors and counter tops on this site. My questions is how well does it stand up to every day use?

    Not well. It is just vinyl. It will scratch, get nicks in it, etc. If you want it to last, epoxy over on the floor or countertops.

    There are different types and weights of contact paper. I agree.... It is not a permanent solution however it is ideal for apartment dwellers who can't permanently change their home. EZ Faux makes some very specialized types of contact paper to be used on appliances and counters
