Hybrid flooring versus vinyl planks: choosing between the two
You might have heard the latest gossip in flooring: no longer do you have to compromise between the benefits of hardwood, laminate and vinyl when you’re renovating or replacing a floor.
There is a new kid on the block, and it’s called hybrid flooring.
In simple terms, hybrid flooring is an engineered product that uses an attractive design layer over a limestone core, all wrapped in super-tough polymer.
It combines the best aspects of wood and laminate floors – such as attractive appearance, rigid stability and easy installation – with the outstanding durability of waterproof vinyl floors.
From what we at Parrys have seen, most people shopping for new flooring are comparing hybrid floors against vinyl planks, so let’s take a quick look at how they stack up.
