Laminate flooring is an extremely popular choice for homeowners who are looking to capture the warm, rich look of traditional hardwood flooring, but are operating on a budget that won't allow them to pay the higher sticker price of hardwood. It is extremely durable and attractive as well as scratch- and stain-resistant and ideally designed for areas with a high degree of foot traffic, especially by children and pets. This type of flooring is very easy to maintain and does not fade even in direct sunlight.
However, the benefits of laminate flooring don't end at its affordability; there are many other attractive qualities of laminate flooring that make it worth some serious consideration.
This is a feature of laminate flooring that synergistically dovetails with its affordability. Because laminate flooring is designed with an easy to install interlocking system, it is a perfect candidate for DIY installation.
Because anyone with modest DIY skills can install a laminate floor
in their home, it allows the homeowner to save a great deal of money by avoiding the cost of paying an installation team. This fact, coupled with its already affordable price, makes laminate flooring one of the most economical floor covering choices on the market today.
Due to the interlocking, floating design of laminate flooring, it is a perfect candidate for spaces where the subfloor is incompatible with other floor covering options. In fact, a laminate floor can be installed over nearly any type of subfloor, including concrete and even over an existing laminate floor.
However, its versatility extends beyond its practicality into the realm of aesthetics. Due to some amazing advances in digital printing and imaging, laminate floors can accurately recreate the look and, to some extent, even the feel of other flooring types such as stone and ceramic, in addition to the traditional wood style.
Originally designed for use in areas of intense foot-traffic, laminate flooring offers extreme durability. The sturdy construction combined with the advanced wear layers applied to the surface, make it nearly impervious to denting, scratching and tearing. This makes laminate flooring a perfect option for homes that experience a high degree of foot-traffic, or for homes with children and pets. In addition to this increased durability, laminate flooring is extremely easy to maintain, requiring only regular sweeping.
Laminate flooring offers all of the same health benefits as hardwood flooring. Since there are no fibers or grooves to trap dirt, pollen, and other airborne pollutants, laminate is the perfect choice for households with members experiencing allergies, asthma, or other respiratory health complications
