  • Comparing Luxury Vinyl Tiles vs. Laminate Flooring

In this article we’ll explore the pros and cons of each with a view to helping you make an informed choice. How they’re made Both luxury vinyl tiles and laminate flooring are man-made, but it’s how they’re made and what they’re made of is what makes them different.
