Top 5 Reasons to Invest in Laminate Flooring
Posted on 19th July 2018
Choosing the right flooring for any area in your home can be a daunting task as there are lots of options to consider. Here we will look at the benefits of laminate flooring.
What is laminate flooring?
Essentially, laminate flooring is an affordable synthetic floor covering designed to look like wood or sometimes stone, slate and even ceramic tile flooring. Laminate flooring has changed drastically over the years and now there are more styles and ranges to choose from than ever!
What are the benefits of laminate flooring?
1. Works for every room/area
Laminate floors come in such a wide range of styles and designs that you can find the right floor for any room. There are even waterproof laminate flooring options which are perfect for kitchens and bathrooms. With the correct subfloor, you can even place laminate on under floor heating without hassle.
Laminate flooring is incredibly hardwearing and able to resist scratches, scuff marks and even scorch marks. Even if you don’t have waterproof laminate flooring, spillages do not pose a problem if you simply mop up the fluid as quickly as possible.
3. Low maintenance
Unlike real wood flooring, laminate flooring has a protective top layer making it very easy to clean. It is practically impossible for dirt to penetrate the wood and a regular clean with a dry or lightly dampened fibre cloth is enough to keep your floor in perfect condition.
4. Simple installation
In comparison with other floors, laminate is simple and fuss-free to install. There is no need for glue, stabilized sand or mortar to lay a perfectly level and stable floor. Furthermore, laminate floors can be taken up quickly making it easy to replace.
5. Looks natural
Thanks to the modern-day techniques, a laminate floor is almost identical to real wood flooring and even the texture of real timber can be perfectly imitated. You have the choice of virtually every type of timber, and can even select laminate that has the appearance of natural stone or concrete.
