Laminate vs. Luxury Vinyl Flooring

Laminate vs. Luxury Vinyl Flooring

When it comes to manufactured flooring, there’s much more than meets the eye. Today, home and business owners seeking affordable, sturdy, and scratch-resistant flooring will typically steer towards laminates or luxury vinyl products. The selection process tends to get tricky since these two flooring families have much in common. 

At Carpet One Floor & Home of Redding, CA, we’re here to help you stay informed, so you’ll make every decision with utmost confidence. With our current inventory spanning all of the latest laminate and luxury vinyl flooring innovations, we can help you meet your match every time. 




Benefits of Laminate Flooring

There's nothing quite like modern-day laminate flooring when it comes to resilience, beauty, and convenience. Laminate boasts an enduring core made from resins and wood by-products. Its visuals tend to be more realistic than luxury vinyl due to the embossing done during manufacturing. It’s a beautiful option for those who appreciate instant gratification. Its click-and-lock installation process, such as our gorgeous Mirror Lake laminate line, makes for a more straightforward solution. Laminate planks are built in three sturdy layers, making them dense enough to resist daily damages. Most laminate options are designed to impersonate hardwood flooring, minus the cost and limitations perfectly. 




Benefits of Luxury Vinyl Flooring

Luxury vinyl plank, made from 100% synthetic materials, is a newer family of manufactured flooring that achieves its realistic hardwood visuals using the latest digital imaging technologies. Luxury vinyl flooring can be found in both plank and tile form. Its sheer variety is quite impressive, with hundreds of styles to choose from. Certain product lines are offering full waterproofing abilities.
