Laminate has been on the market since the 70s. It can go onto kitchen floors, but it is just water-resistant, which means that it will only stand up to water for so long before it starts to ripple, peel or stain. However, there is a waterproof laminate developed that will stand up to liquids, and it is the one you want to ask for.

Luxury Vinyl

Luxury vinyl is more than water-resistant. It has a waterproof layered core that is made of composite wood or stone plastic. So it doesn’t react to water no matter how long you submerge it.


Both laminate and vinyl can be installed similarly. They go down as a floating floor. They attach like a jigsaw puzzle in planks or tiles, creating a tight seal for the subfloor. If they were merely water-resistant, there would be a chance that water could leak into the sub-flooring and warp it. But not waterproof laminate and vinyl. They protect your subfloor from spills and water damage.


A third option is a tile. Ceramic or porcelain tiles are hardened and proofed against water. You would be hard-pressed to find a solvent that would affect the grout. While tile is a little more expensive, it makes up for how it looks on your floor as a great pattern or mosaic. You have the luxury of choosing what you want your tile floor to look like.
