Laminate Flooring: A Great-Value Flooring Option

Laminate flooring planks ready for installation in a homeLaminate flooring is a recent innovation in flooring technology, one that has gained immense popularity due its practicality and cost-effectiveness.

Simulating the look of hardwood flooring, laminate flooring is a more affordable alternative product consisting of laminated, multi-layer synthetic material. It is preferred by many home and commercial property owners not only because it is cheaper but also because it is easier to maintain than many natural flooring options.

The benefits of laminate flooring 

  • Low-cost – As mentioned, if you are looking for an affordable flooring product that provides almost the same level of beauty that hardwood flooring does, then consider laminate flooring. It is less costly than natural wood because it is made from relatively inexpensive materials.
  • Design options – Laminate flooring is available in different varieties that simulate not just hardwood flooring but also natural stone and ceramic tiles. Some products are even made using techniques that reproduce the texture of some of these materials.
  • Easy installation – Laminate flooring comes in conveniently-sized planks with tongue and groove joints, making installation easy, whether for a DIY enthusiast or a professional flooring contractor.
  • Simple to clean – Laminate flooring features a wear layer that protects the inner material from spills, making cleaning and maintenance relatively easy. The layer also makes the planks reasonably protected from many stains, unlike natural wood.
  • Durability and mold resistance – Laminate flooring is a good material for high foot traffic environments because it has good scratch and scruff resistance. Laminate flooring products also don’t fade and don’t warp when they get wet. Because most laminate flooring products contain purely synthetic materials, they are also resistant to the growth of molds. However, you still have to make sure that you blot liquid spills immediately when they get on your laminate flooring. Sitting water or liquid can still cause damage to laminate flooring products that are not completely waterproof.
  • Expansion is effortless – Laminate flooring is not glued to the ground or floor when they are installed, making removal or expansion trouble-free. 

Whether you are planning to install the laminate flooring in your hallways, living room, bedrooms, or kitchen, you’ll never go wrong with a high-quality laminate flooring product.
