Laminate and Luxury Vinyl Tiles (LVT) are similar as they both offer the authentic look of wood and other natural materials, whilst offering a more cost effective and practical solution to the real thing. The main difference between them is their construction, which gives each its own particular benefits in specific situations. Luxury Vinyl Tiles are typically 2.5mm thick with a photographic representation of the flooring type they are replicating such as wood or cermaic. They are highly durable, scratch resistant and waterproof, so ideal for hallways, kitchens, bathrooms and other areas where foot traffic, dirt and moisture are an issue.

Amtico and Karndean are industry leaders who are both based in the UK. Amtico flooring made its name in the 1960s with its famous brick patterns, unique non-repeating prints and trapped mineral effects. Karndean offer an extensive range of timber and stone effect floors throughout their range including Knight Tile, Opus, Art Select, Van Gogh and Da Vinci ranges. 

Laminate flooring is constructed using High Density Fibre Board with a photograph of the floor type it replicates, covered with a hard wearing laminate overlay. The industry has made huge advances, led by companies like Quickstep, and modern laminates offer both greater choice and vastly improved quality compared to a few years ago. In fact, it’s easy to forget that laminate flooring contains no real wood at all. Quickstep have recently launched Quickstep Livyn, the next generation of laminate flooring. Strictly speaking it is a hybrid of laminate and Luxury Vinyl Tiles which can be clicked together like laminate, combined with the look of LVT. 

Luxury Vinyl Tiles are 100% waterproof, so can be used anywhere in your home including the bathroom; laminates are generally only water-resistant, so can be used in kitchens, but not recommended for bathrooms (although waterproof versions, such as Quick-Step Hydroseal, are available). You can also use both products with under floor heating if correct installation procedures are followed. We offer a range of high quality Luxury Vinyl Tiles which can be used for commerical buildings. Quickstep Livyn Pulse Click offers the highest wear rating so is ideal for commerical installations. If budget is an issue, laminate flooring tends to be more affordable than LVT.
