If you are remodeling your home or building a new house and looking for flooring, laminate flooring is an excellent option. Laminate flooring is durable and able to handle heavy foot traffic without suffering significant wear and tear. Laminate is also available in a wide variety of colors and designs, which allows it to match whatever style you choose for your home. In addition to durability and stylishness, laminate flooring has several other benefits.

Benefits of Laminate Floors

Choosing laminate flooring for your home has quite a few benefits, such as:

  • Easy Installation – Generally, laminate flooring can be installed quickly and easily. Some versions of laminate flooring require the pieces to be glued to each other as they’re installed. However, in most cases, laminate pieces are made in a way that enables them to click or fold and lock together like puzzle pieces as they’re installed, which makes the installation process fast. Often, installation can be completed in a couple of days or less.
  • Attractiveness – Laminate is created to look like other natural materials, including wood and stone. The technology used to make laminate has advanced throughout the years. As a result, laminate can flawlessly recreate other natural materials. This allows homeowners to install laminate flooring in their homes that looks like marble, hardwood, granite for a fraction of the price of the real thing.
  • Maintenance – Laminate is durable and simple to maintain. It has a protective layer on top that is scratch, dent, and stain resistant. In addition, most spills are easy to remove with a mop or a wet cloth. Laminate floors are also easy to maintain in areas of your home that are prone to moisture, such as kitchens and bathrooms, because they’re water resistant.
  • Cleaning – Laminate floors do not require waxing. Cleaning them simply requires sweeping and/or vacuuming them regularly. In addition, occasionally laminate floor cleaner should be used to mop laminate floors to keep them looking like new.
  • Comfort – In most cases, laminate flooring should have an underlayment installed. This enables it to feel soft while you stand or walk on it, which will allow you to comfortably stand or walk on it for long periods of time. For example, if you install laminate flooring in your kitchen, an underlayment will enable you to stand comfortably for hours while preparing meals or washing dishes.

Types of Laminate Flooring

There are several styles of laminate flooring available, including but not limited to the following:

  • Wood – This type of laminate flooring is designed to look like hardwood flooring. It is available in several styles that include different patterns and species of wood grain. Therefore, it is easy to find a type of wood grain laminate flooring with the style of your home.
  • Pre-Glued – This type of laminate comes with glue already applied. Pre-glued laminate can be installed more quickly than laminate that requires the glue to be applied separately.
  • Glued – Traditional laminate does not come with glue already applied. It is still easy to install and can be laid down quickly. However, the installation process does require that glue is applied to the laminate as it is installed.
  • Thick – Thick laminate tiles, while more expensive, often last much longer than thinner laminate sheets.
  • Granite, Slate, and Marble – Like wood grain laminate, other natural types of flooring can be recreated using laminate, including marble, granite, and slate.
