Vinyl flooring is the superior choice for kitchens because of its exceptional water resistance and durability. It can withstand spills, splashes, and humidity without warping or staining.
 
On the other hand, laminate flooring may have a more authentic wood appearance, but it is sensitive to moisture and may swell or buckle over time.
 
While laminate flooring may offer aesthetic advantages, luxury vinyl kitchen flooring exceeds in performance and is the safer and more practical choice for kitchens.
