A Couple of Reasons to Love Laminate

Every flooring installation has its strengths and weaknesses, it's pros and cons. Despite this fact, some materials get way less love than they deserve. Laminate flooring installations, in particular, are always seen as some sort of consolation prize, for people without the budget for hardwood flooring. We think that this is the wrong way of looking at the situation for a number of reasons, the least of which being that this mentality completely ignores the more attractive attributes of material. This mentality is mostly based upon the myth that hardwood flooring is always better, which is simply untrue.

Since many people hold this bias against laminate, we at Completely Floored decided to set the record straight, and take a moment to help clear the name of this misunderstood material. Here are three reasons to consider laminate for your next flooring project!

It Can Save You Money in More Ways Than One

The one thing most people know about laminate is that it is a very cost-effective alternative to a hardwood floor installation. What few people realize, though, is that it saves you money in another way, as well.

One of the biggest costs of any type of flooring is the installation fee. While it is 100% inadvisable to install hardwood as a DIY project, skilled DIYers can install laminate, if they are extremely careful and meticulous about their work.

The DIY method definitely isn't for everyone, and people who aren't completely confident in their DIY skills, would be risking an awful financial loss to attempt self-installation. For those skilled enough and brave enough to pull it off, it can be a huge savings!

Sub-floor Versatility

Sometimes you want the look of wood floors in a room with a sub-floor that is incompatible with hardwood flooring. In situations like this, laminate will be your best friend, because it can be installed over nearly any type of sub-floor without risk.
