One of the most attractive features of laminate flooring is the ability of people, with even the most modest DIY capabilities, to install it themselves. While this is a great way to save money on your flooring job by cutting out the cost of labor, it's not exactly as cut and dry as many would have you believe.
There are so many different flooring materials on the market to choose from, you might wonder why you should take the time to consider laminate flooring. But there are actually quite a few benefits to laminate that stand all on their own, as great reasons to choose it for your floors.
At Completely Floored, we know how important quality flooring is to you as a homeowner. And we want to be available to help you choose one that not only suits your needs, but looks great as well. We invite you to visit our showroom in Everett, WA to speak to a flooring professional to find the very best floors for your own home.
Laminate flooring, with its chameleon-like adaptiveness and versatility, is an excellent choice for rooms that need to be equally adaptive, like that spare, multipurpose room that serves as a guest bedroom when needed. Undoubtedly, the first thing that people notice when entering a room is the actual floor, mainly because it takes up so much visual space in any given place.
In rooms that serve as guest bedrooms, you'll want a flooring option that is comfortable underfoot, easy to maintain, highly-durable, and very attractive. Do such floors even exist? Yes, they do, and they're called laminate flooring. Homeowners, if you're still wondering about the advantages of laminate flooring, then check out these points:

We get a lot of questions about laminate flooring here at Completely Floored, so we thought it might be a good idea to provide our customers a quick FAQ to lay to rest the most common questions people ask us about laminate flooring.
As a homeowner, the struggle to find the perfect flooring material can be real. Getting started can leave you feeling like you’re adrift on a sea of endless choices. Should you go with solid hardwood, engineered wood, carpet, or luxury vinyl? You might also wonder if you want the same flooring material throughout your entire home or if you should choose different flooring materials for different rooms of your home.
While the options are certainly numerous, we want to help you slow down a bit with a focus on laminate flooring. This material is a very popular one and for those who might not know a great deal about it, we’d like to offer some insight.
Thanksgiving is just around the corner and this article in Goskagit.Com reminds us that turkey isn’t the only option: https://www.goskagit.com/sports/turkey-one-of-many-options-for-the-table/article_c61e8ec8-828e-582f-a5cf-a7b15d65c6d8.html by Vince Richardson.
Thank you for that important reminder, because we sometimes forget that we always have options in everything. Yes, that includes flooring. For instance, real wood isn’t the only option if your heart says yes to hardwood, but your wallet says no to the cost.
Although many homeowners believe that termites only eat through solid hardwood flooring, the truth is that those little buggers can also damage the sublayers on laminate flooring. The tricky part about assessing possible termite damage is that an infestation looks very much like water damage.
Visually, when water damage occurs, it appears as sagging sections in the laminate flooring. Likewise, termite issues will also produce a sagging, blistered effect in laminate flooring areas. However, upon closer inspection, you'll see a series of tunneling, situated predominantly beneath the buckled tile areas, which are holes created by termites "chewing" through your flooring.
Aside from its durability, water-resistance, and aesthetic appeal, one of the most attractive features of laminate flooring would have to be the ease with which it can be installed by those with even the most modest DIY chops. Like anything else, however, no matter how easy it is, there are always little tricks and tips that can make the process even easier. Here are four ways you can make your already simple laminate flooring install even easier:
