Tile Versus Vinyl Plank
Water is an enemy of flooring, so deciding what type to use for your bathroom is crucial. It’s not a matter of if, but when your bathroom floor will have stand up to the test of water. In dealing with moisture, tile is the clear choice ahead of vinyl plank. But there are other factors: cost, durability and installation.
Both tile and vinyl plank offer benefits and drawbacks in selecting the flooring surface for your home. Regardless of your choice, Carpet Bonanza has you and your floor covered.
Let’s break down the two options:
Tile might be more expensive than vinyl plank but think of tile as an investment: it can last for decades! When it comes to water, tile is resilient, even against standing pools from splashing. If you opt for tile flooring, you can choose between stone or luxury vinyl tiles.
Stone tiles are incredibly durable, but that sense of security comes at a price — they can be difficult to install on your own and often are the most expensive flooring option.
Like stone tiles, vinyl is waterproof but also is immune to scratches and stains. Vinyl is more cost effective and mimics the look of natural flooring like tile or wood at a fraction of the cost.
Vinyl plank flooring is resistant to moisture and stains that hardwood and tile floors are easily susceptible to. Vinyl is durable and softer than other flooring, which makes it great for families with small kids.
