Laminate Flooring For Your Home
Laminate flooring is a fantastic, cost-effective option for your most high-traffic areas, here are some of the reasons it may be right for you:
Most people learn of laminate flooring due to its cost-effectiveness. Because laminate flooring is made mostly from composite wood pressed together at high temperatures, it’s considerably more affordable than natural timber, which can be quite expensive depending on how exotic the tree is.
Not only is the composite timber material of laminate flooring hard-wearing, but the uppermost layer of laminate also offers fantastic scratch resistance. The top coating of laminate floorboards will survive high traffic, rowdy kids, and pet claws. UV resistance also means the color of your floors is less likely to fade over time.
Developments in laminate flooring technology mean the difference between natural timber and laminate is much harder to distinguish today. Many laminate floorboards feature unique embossing to accurately mimic the appearance and texture of natural wood.
Laminate flooring is easy to keep clean. Spills and marks can simply be wiped away with a soft microfibre cloth and it’s easy to sweep or vaccum away any dirt and dust.
As a type of floating floor, laminate flooring typically features a simple lock-together system which is very easy to use, so DIY installation is possible.
