Durability is one of the main factors to consider when buying new flooring - so which holds up best over time?
Welcome to our ultimate flooring face-off! In this blog post, we’ll explore four popular flooring options that go head-to-head with concrete floors. Whether you’re dealing with a bare concrete surface or considering a flooring upgrade, we’ve got you covered. Let’s dive into the world of carpet, laminate, vinyl, and luxury vinyl tile (LVT) flooring options and discover the pros and cons of each to help you make the best choice for your space.
The most noticeable issue with concrete sub-floors is the temperature – concrete floors are very cold to the touch because they don’t retain heat very well and the warmth from your home can be lost through a concrete floor, so that’ll be our primary driving factor here.

Carpet flooring offers a cosy and comfortable option with a wide range of colours and textures to suit any interior. It consists of soft fibres attached to a backing, providing a plush surface that is gentle on your feet and reduces noise levels.
Laminate flooring is a budget-friendly alternative to hardwood, offering the appearance of wood or other materials through a photographic layer covered by a protective top layer.
Vinyl flooring is a versatile and water-resistant option available in various styles, including planks or tiles, replicating the look of wood, tile, or stone.
LVT is an upgraded version of vinyl flooring, combining durability and style. It typically comes in tile or plank formats and offers enhanced visuals.
When it comes to flooring for concrete floors, each option has its strengths and weaknesses. Carpet offers comfort and warmth but requires regular maintenance. Laminate is budget-friendly and durable, but it may not be ideal for moisture-prone areas. Vinyl flooring is water-resistant and easy to maintain, but it might not offer the same aesthetic appeal as other options.
Luxury vinyl tile combines durability with realistic appearance, but it comes at a higher cost. Consider your budget, lifestyle, and the specific needs of your space to make an informed decision and find the flooring that best suits your concrete base and style preferences. Happy flooring!
