We know that one of the most coveted floorings is hardwood. You might want it too, but your wallet just says a resounding “no!” You can still get the look of hardwood, with textures, patterns and colors, with laminate flooring. It’s all without the sticker shock of hardwood; since it’s a layered, printed product, the material is less expensive than hardwood, and the installation is as well.
Laminate flooring is made from pressed wood, layered with the printed image and then topped off with a protective clear wear layer that’s scratch-resistant, spill-resistant and moisture-resistant, so it’s especially great if you have a lot of foot traffic, pets, or kids.
Speaking of kids, everything, including walls, floors, even furniture are subject to scratches, dents, scuff marks, crayon markers, spills, stains and more, and their playthings include a lot more than stuffed animals. They play with pull toys (many with sharp edges), plastic figures, miniature trucks and cars, and let’s not forget the toy chest itself. None of this will faze laminate flooring.
Now, as part of the high durability factor of laminate flooring, you don’t need to worry about fading. Hardwood can fade if exposed to direct sunlight, but laminate flooring has that wear layer to protect it.
Laminate flooring is also easy to clean. Sweep, vacuum or damp mop; if you need to use a detergent, use one that’s manufacturer-approved. Since everything stays on the surface spills wipe up right away. Tougher stains, like lipstick or nail polish, also come up easily, but ask your flooring retailer for the best advice.
Anyone in your family have allergies or asthma? Laminate flooring is a good choice for them, because there’s no place for dust mites or other particles to hide. When you sweep away the dust, those particles also go.
