Laminate Flooring – 7 Reasons To Choose This Amazing Flooring
When searching for flooring you aren’t exactly short of options but laminate flooring is certainly something anyone should consider. Even a simpler more budget-friendly plain laminate can be incredibly beneficial and look stunning once installed! Below, I’ve outlined my personal top 7 reasons to choose laminate flooring.
Laminate flooring is a popular choice for kitchens and bathrooms but it can be used in any room or hallway. Few people really realise just how versatile laminate flooring can be. A cheap laminate floor is ideal for children’s bedrooms and comes in a fantastic array of designs.
By using laminate flooring in other rooms you can benefit from its advantages across your whole house. While carpets and hardwood flooring might be seen as the more traditional choice when it comes to living rooms or bedrooms you shouldn’t dismiss laminate flooring. It looks amazing in kitchens and bathrooms but can look great in any room.
When you look at laminate flooring it might appear to be quite weak especially when compared to hardwood flooring and thick carpets. But laminate flooring is very deceptive and much stronger than most people realise.
Laminate flooring is naturally scratch and dent resistant with the added bonus of being moisture, chemical and even UV resistant as well. You can use the AC rating of laminate flooring to see how durable it is but even the lowest rating of AC 1 is still very strong.
Cheap laminate flooring is easy to find and don’t worry it doesn’t mean you will lose out on anything of value. It is still strong, hygienic and easy to clean! The only potential downside is that you might have fewer designs to choose from but you might be surprised by the array of designs you can still find even when shopping for laminate flooring on a budget.
Another useful tip is to look out for a laminate flooring sale, that way you’ll have more options when it comes to designs. But whether you go to a laminate flooring sale or not in the majority of cases laminate flooring will be much cheaper than a carpet or hardwood flooring.
It’s Easy To Install
Carpets can be notoriously difficult to install even for trained professionals. But laminate flooring is often much easier to install and can lend itself to more unusual layouts. Laminate flooring is designed for floating installation which makes it simpler for you to install.
Many people who opt for laminate flooring can easily install it on their own so you don’t have to pay any extra installation charges. Whether you choose a budget laminate flooring or a more luxurious type it will almost always be the easiest type of flooring to install.
It’s Easy To Clean
Picture this you spill a glass of red wine on some tile effect laminate flooring! While it might make a bit of a mess it is simple and easy enough to clean up, isn’t it? Plus it won’t leave any residue or marks behind on the laminate flooring. A quick mop up or wipe with a cloth or even some paper towels and it will be like nothing happened.
But the same can’t be said for dropping a glass of red wine on a carpet, can it? Not only will it be much harder to clean up it will often leave behind a nasty stain if you aren’t quick enough. Even hardwood flooring can get damage if liquid soaks into it.
But with laminate flooring, accidental spills that would damage other kinds of flooring can easily be cleaned up! Best of all, this is a benefit that all kinds of laminate flooring possess. Even cheap laminate flooring is going to be immune to damage from spills and other things like dust.
The last benefit I outlined really carries over into this one! Because laminate flooring is much easier to clean than a traditional carpet or hardwood floor it is much more hygienic. Things like dust and general dirt and grime can build up in regular carpets as well, you might not be able to see it at first but you will often feel the effects in some way.
With laminate flooring, you can quickly and easily clean up dust and general dirt and grime. Laminate flooring is also immune to problems like insects and mould that can affect hardwood flooring as well.
It Looks Amazing
Laminate flooring looks amazing! Whether you opt for a luxurious fancy ornate design or a simpler cheap laminate floor it will be sure to look stunning once installed. One of the best things about laminate flooring is that there is such a wide variety when it comes to designs so all tastes are catered to.
Tile effect laminate flooring, in particular, is very popular and a great starting point for people looking to try laminate flooring for the first time. Laminate flooring can also be used to mimic the effect of another type of flooring like hardwood designs to give just one example. Whether you’re a fan of traditional tile effect laminate flooring or prefer something a little more unusual there is a design for everyone.
