Both these products come off as durable, budget friendly and DIY friendly products, as well as they look very similar and can be hard to tell apart.

While these products have many similarities, they are very different which becomes obvious when you break down the criteria of each one.

One of the most important things for home owners is durability and this can mean being water resistance, as there always seems to be some type of water in each room of the house!

Wanting a water resistant flooring makes vinyl flooring the obvious winner here.  All types of vinyl flooring – including luxury vinyl are made up of 100 percent waterproof material, you just can’t go wrong.

Both types of flooring are relatively cost friendly and of course a much cheaper option than natural hardwood or ceramic tile.

The great thing about either of these options is well…all the options!

They can both look like wood, stone, ceramic or really just about any material, especially when you get into the luxury brands.
