Luxury vinyl flooring vs. laminate: Which is better?


Choosing between luxury vinyl flooring and laminate depends on your specific requirements and preferences in the spaces where you need remodeling. Each of these materials offers different benefits, and one may serve you better.

There are many similarities between these two, so it will take careful consideration of benefits and extended advantages to find your best match. Here are some factors to consider as you shop.

Benefits of luxury vinyl flooring


Luxury vinyl
is the perfect choice when you need extra protection from pet nails, child’s play, and heavy in-house traffic, thanks to LVT and LVP flooring with a protective layer. It also provides 100% waterproof protection for results you're sure to love.

We can’t forget how beautiful luxury vinyl flooring is, mimicking stone, wood, and porcelain tile. These products will match any décor scheme, so browse until you find your match.

Benefits of laminate


Laminate offers many of the same visuals found in luxury vinyl flooring, with products that look like wood and stone. And they also offer water-resistant and waterproof materials, but be sure to ask for all the details, especially if you have subfloor moisture issues.

Durability is excellent when you choose LVP or LVT flooring, even with heavy traffic, children, and pets. Ask about a protective top layer you can customize to fit your needs.
