Homeowners have always gravitated towards both luxury vinyl flooring and laminate for the beautiful wood and stone look. Both options also offer excellent durability, but how do they differ? Which might be better for you?

Vinyl plank flooring vs. laminate flooring

Vinyl plank flooring and laminate both offer some fantastic benefits that can be utilized in various spaces throughout your home with excellent results. Here are some specific facts about these two to give you an idea of the general differences.


Laminate offers beautiful visuals, including both the wood and stone look, with a wear layer that protects against much of the daily wear it will go through in your home. It also features the click-and-lock installation method, making for an easy and quick installation over any prepared subfloor material. In addition, it offers a lifespan that averages about 15 years with proper care.



Luxury vinyl offers many of the same benefits found in laminate but can include complete waterproof protection based on a unique core material. It also provides a simple installation process, outstanding daily wear durability, and a lifespan that can reach and exceed 20 years or more.
