Laminate vrs vinyl


Looking for a woodgrain flooring for my kitchen.

I like the planks that look like rustic wood floors. I kinda interested in the floating thinner prodect over real wood.

What is a good product for the kitchen?

Vinyl is always better in wet areas than laminate.

Vinyl is better choice for kitchen..It is a durable surface that shouldn't stain, scratch, or fade. Vinyl—especially the luxury styles—can handle spills, kids, and pets with ease..

Most laminate flooring can't be wet mopped, that alone is enough to stop us from using it... again.
