Laminate Flooring Guide
Having a stylish, durable, and reliable floor doesn’t have to cost you a fortune. While there once was a time when laminate flooring wasn’t known for its good looks, times have certainly changed and today’s laminate flooring, thanks to recent innovations, can realistically accomplish stunning visuals inspired by wood, tile, and stone. For those who love natural hardwood, but would prefer to avoid the hefty investment and upkeep, laminate flooring is a terrific alternative that is, in many ways, even superior to its natural counterparts.
Simple to care for and easy to clean, laminate flooring is a popular option for parents, pet-owners, and hectic households. Laminate flooring is available in thousands of styles, meaning it’s easy to keep up with the latest trends: this floor works beautifully just about anywhere. Let’s learn more about this once unsung hero of the flooring world.
Laminate is a terrific flooring choice for many, many reasons. With its sturdy, synthetic composition, laminate doesn’t rely on natural resources, so it’s considered sustainable. It’s built to endure heavy usage, and with its protective top layer, laminate flooring simply wipes clean.
Since it’s constructed in layers, laminate boasts added stability and unlike actual hardwood, laminate flooring won’t show its age as the years go by. In fact, a quality laminate floor can very likely outlive a floor made using natural hardwood.
Where to Install Laminate Flooring
Made to go, literally, anywhere, versatile laminate flooring can be customized to fit all of your favorite spaces. Laminate can be installed in spaces where natural hardwood or stone simply isn’t compatible: places like bathrooms, kitchens, and finished basements.
Laminate Flooring Installation
You’ve found the perfect laminate flooring: now you’re ready to install it. We have some great news for you: laminate has several methods of installation, with many of them extremely user-friendly. Your laminate flooring can be glued or nailed to your subfloor, much like traditional hardwood. An even simpler method compatible with certain laminate floors is the floating method. With a floating installation, your laminate planks or tiles will simply click together over your subfloor: no adhesive required.
