The benefits of laminate flooring
Laminate flooring is a popular flooring choice for many households, and businesses, due to its range of benefits, including durability and low maintenance, which come at a very affordable cost.
Here, we look at why laminate flooring could be the perfect choice for you.
Laminate flooring is made up of multiple layers, topped with a strong plastic layer, which makes it durable and protects it from wear and tear, making it ideal for rooms which get lots of use.
In addition to this it is resistant to scratches and stains too, and does not fade in the sunlight, so you can be sure that it will stay looking great for many years.
Easy to install
If you are looking to install your own laminate flooring, you don’t need to worry about it being a difficult job, as the pieces simply fit into each other using a tongue and groove system, so there is no need for glue, or any extra tools.
In addition to this, laminate flooring can be laid over a variety of other flooring types, excluding carpet, so you will not need to worry about taking up existing solid wood, plywood, or vinyl tiles, before you start.
To clean laminate flooring, you just simply need to sweep or vacuum it to keep it free from dust and debris, and then finish it off by wiping it over with a damp cloth or mop, there is no polish or wax required.
Plus, as it doesn’t absorb dust like a carpet does, it is the perfect choice for people who suffer from allergies, and is resistant to mould and bacteria too, making is a very sanitary flooring choice.
Laminate is ideal if you are looking for a budget-friendly flooring option, as it is one of the cheapest materials you could choose, but, as these benefits show, that is not because it is a poor-quality choice.
At less than half of the cost of hardwood options, and cheaper than carpet, it is also great value as it will not need replacing for many years, so you can be confident that you will get lots use out of it for your money.
We think that the benefits of laminate flooring make it a fantastic choice for any home, or business, and would love to talk to you about this in more detail should you have any questions.
