Wood Design, Vinyl, or Laminate – Which is right for you?

This is a very common question in the flooring world; Laminate or vinyl floor? vinyl or wood? wood and laminate? And above all, which floor best suits you, your home and your needs. To answer these burning questions, we must begin with a brief introduction to each type of wood floor.

Laminate floors are a relatively inexpensive way to achieve a wood effect floor in your home and are often chosen for children’s bedrooms, hallways and other areas that require a functional, easy-to-clean and relatively durable floor. The choice of models is huge, so it’s best to shop around to try and find the right model for your home.

Vinyl flooring is another well-known type of flooring and although there are many types of vinyl flooring, in this particular article we will focus on LVT (Luxury Vinyl Tiles) wood look. LVT is often chosen as flooring for bathrooms and/or kitchens due to its waterproof and easy-to-clean properties.

Luxury vinyl tile tends to rank higher than laminate when it comes to water-resistant flooring, but it can lack style and texture as it has a softer plastic texture.

Laminate and vinyl floors have their pros and cons, but what if there was a solution that combined the style and strength of laminate with the benefits of a vinyl floor that was waterproof and durable, yet easy to install.. .? Which brings us to the next product…

Wood Design floors are floors that visually imitate wood with the practical benefits of Stratex technology. We came up with Stratex at Woodpecker because we felt there was a gap in the market. At Woodpecker, we recognize the need for wood look flooring that is practical for homes and offers affordable, pet-friendly, waterproof and durable hygienic flooring options. Thus was born Stratex – our alternative to laminate flooring, and with it two distinctive and unique
series; Brecon (part of our Designer Wood category) & Lynton (part of our Engineered Wood category):

Brecon is a very popular choice for bathroom and/or kitchen floors as expansion joints are not usually required. It is a fully waterproof floor and comes with built in back then assembly.Brecon is also available in a range of beautiful oak-like finishes, as well as parquet and herringbone patterns, to give any space a luxurious feel without the luxury price tag.

As we have seen, every floor covering has its advantages and disadvantages. So which one is right for you depends on your personal needs and preferences. Do you need a completely waterproof floor? Do you need dog-friendly floors? Do you need an easy-to-install floor?Or do you need a floor with a specific thickness? It’s important to consider your current situation, but also what factors will be critical to you 10+ years from now, as many types of flooring will last well beyond that useful life.
