Choosing Between Vinyl, Laminate and Real Wood Flooring 

01 Dec 2020

If you’re thinking of having hard flooring fitted in your home for the first time, you might be wondering about the difference between the various types of hard flooring available on the market, and which would make the best choice for your home. 

At Value Carpets and Flooring, we offer luxury vinyl tile flooring, laminate flooring, and real wood flooring. But what is the difference between these flooring types, and how do you know which is the best choice for your home? 

Laminate flooring

Laminate flooring is the most cost effective option for hard flooring. Since its beginnings in the 1970’s, laminate flooring has come a long way, with new advances being made all the time. We now offer laminate flooring in fully waterproof versions, with realistic boards making them look indistinguishable from real wood flooring, but with all the benefits of laminate!

Laminate flooring is also extremely versatile, and we offer over 500 different options for laminate floors, so you’ll be sure to find the perfect flooring for your home, that’s both durable and looks the part too!

Luxury vinyl tile flooring

Luxury vinyl tile (LVT) flooring is a more advanced form of hard flooring, designed to mimic the look of hardwood flooring even better than laminate flooring.  LVT flooring is extremely resistant to moisture, making it perfect for bathrooms, and extremely durable, making it a fantastic alternative to laminate flooring, with a beautiful finish. 

Real wood flooring 

Solid wood flooring is a traditional favourite, adding warmth and character to any home. We offer a range of shades of wood with various patterns and grains, so you can choose the perfect finish for your home. When well maintained, real wood flooring can last a lifetime, and it’s more resistant to mould, dust and allergens than the laminate and vinyl flooring alternatives. 

When it comes to the choice between hard flooring styles, the decision will be influenced by your budget, and the finish you want for your flooring. Whatever choice you make, we offer a wide arrange of options for each flooring style, so you’ll be sure to find the perfect flooring for your home!
