Design & Materials
The most obvious difference between the two types of flooring is the number of designs available. While laminate flooring is available in various wooden looks, LVT flooring is designed with a wider variety of wood, stone and more abstract patterns.
Luxury vinyl plank flooring has a durable core layer with a printed vinyl layer on top. The printed vinyl is of authentic wood, stone or design pattern. The core of a laminate board is made from high or medium density fiberwood, with a photographic decorative layer on top.
Both types of flooring have a tough wear layer on top to keep the floors long-lasting.
Most LVT flooring has water-resistance capabilities and is common in wet areas such as the bathroom if they’re installed correctly. Laminate flooring was not a good choice for wet areas, but technologies have improved in recent years. You can find various water-resistant laminate floors on the market. With both flooring types, it’s important to follow the manufacturer’s instructions when installing in areas that may be exposed to water.
