What’s The Difference Between Luxury Vinyl Tiles and Laminate Flooring?

LVT

Laminate

Materials

LVT is dimensionally stable and flexible because its primary component is PVC vinyl.

Laminate floor is more rigid and strong because the primary layer is made of high-density fiberboard.

Installation

Most LVT are glued-down by applying a separate adhesive or by using peel-and-stick tiles or planks.

Laminate flooring should never be nailed or glued to the subfloor as it uses a floating-floor system.

Feel

LVT feels like plastic because it’s made out of vinyl.

Laminate Flooring feels like wood because it’s made primarily from wood.

Resistance

Some LVT is prone to stain and limited flame exposure will damage the material.

Laminate flooring is highly resistant to stain and limited flame exposure won’t damage the material. Laminate flooring is also good for everyday accidents, scratches and dropped objects, because it is made harder and tougher.

Environmental Friendly

LVT is made primarily from petrochemical and chlorides, not to mention the adhesives. It is not really a “green” flooring choice.

Laminate flooring is made by wood, a natural and renewable resource, thus greener than LVT.

Price

LVT is less pricey than Laminate flooring.

Due to its material, Laminate flooring is more expensive than LVT.
