If you’re not sure which flooring option is best for you, here’s a guideline to laminate and why we love it!
Laminate planks are made by gluing together several layers of composite wood. Toward the surface of each laminate, this plank is a visual rendering of natural hardwood or a tile-look, e.g., natural stone or solid hardwood. For this reason, laminate is generally more affordable, easier to maintain, and more resistant to moisture than natural wood floors.
Laminate flooring has certainly changed in the last few years, thanks to new technology and design. In general, laminate is still made using layers of wood composite with a decorative layer of wood look at the surface. However, the designs have certainly received an upgrade, with some wood-look and tile-look options becoming more popular in recent years.Some benefits of laminate include:
It’s budget-friendly: If you’re dreaming of beautiful hardwood but don’t have the budget, laminate is an affordable option.
It’s easy to install: Instead of waiting for your grout to set or the hardwood to acclimate to your space, you can have your laminate installed and ready to use all day!
Style is key: Match your interior design needs with ease! Laminate flooring wins over other engineered flooring options like LVT or LVP, thanks to its design details.
Durability: Perhaps the best advantage over natural hardwood flooring, the laminate is resistant to water, warping, and scratches.
