Laminate is a very durable and beautiful flooring choice which is perfectly suitable for many rooms in your house. However, for “wet” areas such as kitchens, laundry rooms, and bathrooms, laminate is generally not the best choice. Laminate flooring has a wood-based core, and consequently prolonged contact with water can permanently damage it. Luxury vinyl tile presents a waterproof alternative for these areas!
Luxury vinyl tile also offers superior sound absorption qualities over laminate flooring. One common complaint about laminate floors is that they feel and sound hollow when you walk on them. Such is not the case with luxury vinyl tile, as it feels more solid and is more quiet under foot.
All these benefits of luxury vinyl tile are offered without sacrificing the beauty of the product, either! In many cases, the luxury vinyl tile looks as good or better than a comparable laminate product. With the incorporation of current digital imaging technology, many luxury vinyl tile products actually look almost indistinguishable from the real thing!
