This is the Difference Between Vinyl and Laminate Flooring

While on the surface, vinyl and laminate flooring can appear to be very similar, they do have some differences that you can use to determine which is the best for you.

Of course, they are both very durable and great options for people that do not want to spend money on options that are much more expensive. But what you are likely interested in is how they differ.

These are the main differences in vinyl and laminate flooring

  • Vinyl – Vinyl is made of 100% plastic so if you are looking for something that has some wood in it, this is not the option for you.

Because of this, it does offer superior resistance to moisture making it a great option for bathrooms and kitchen areas.

It is also a very durable material and one that you can choose to look any way you like, as long as there is an available design for it.

  • Laminate – Laminate is 99% wood product so it does have wood features and benefits worked into it, although it is not 100% wood, which is important to note.

It also offers a higher resale value so if you are considering selling your home one day, you may want to opt for laminate.

It looks more natural than vinyl does, and many people cannot tell that it is not real wood. Lastly, it is more comfortable to walk on because it is thicker, and it provides more warmth and protection.

Now that you know the differences, you can make a better decision based on your preferences as well as your needs. If you still need help deciding or would like to get started with your order today, be sure to reach out to us here at Wades Carpet & Interiors.
