I am currently doing one project right now, where my client asked me to find the more affordable option for a flooring than a natural wood.
Laminate and Vinyl are two very similar flooring types, the differences don’t jump out at you as they are subtle, but they are there. In this blog I am going to break down what they are, their effectiveness and the differences.
What are they made of?
Laminate is made up of High Density Fibreboards (HDF), small pieces of pulp compressed together to create a wood like material. Luxury vinyl tile flooring meanwhile are made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC), an incredibly durable material. Vinyl probably takes this one, PVC helps make it softer and warmer underfoot, it is also a far tougher material so is likely to last a lot longer than laminate.
