Hints & Tips
Laminate flooring is one of the most popular surfacing materials for flooring, and comes in a variety of styles and designs that can easily complement any living space. Highly durable and flexible enough to be easily installed in high traffic areas. Laminates simulate wood, and are essentially made from selected decorative papers and Kraft paper, which are treated with melamine and phenolic resins.
It’s not hard to see why so many people choose laminates for their floor coverings, as they offer a range of benefits, and we’ve highlighted some of them right here…
One of the biggest benefits to laminate flooring is its affordability. It’s made using non-expensive raw materials, which makes it considerably less expensive than many other types of flooring, without compromising on quality and appearance. The materials used to create laminates may be cheaper, but they are still engineered to give lasting durability and strength.
Speaking of durability and strength; laminate flooring is fully protected from scratches, dents, fading or stains, thanks to having a tough protective external layer and resin coating. The aluminum oxide top coating ensures the flooring is scratch-resistant and extremely strong. It’s engineered to withstand the wear and tear of a busy household.
Of course one of the most obvious benefits to laminate flooring is simply how great it looks. Because of the way laminates are made, you can create a rich variety of attractive styles and designs. Whether you want a hardwood aesthetic, or a tile décor finish, you can choose the look and texture you want.
The easy installation
Laminates are also a top choice for many homeowners thanks to how easy they are to install. Laminate boards are designed with a tongue and groove locking system, meaning they can effortlessly interlock, making them very easy to work with. They can also be easily placed over most existing floors, which can save you even more time and money.
The simple maintenance
If you live in a busy household, then cleaning and maintaining your flooring is likely one of the last things you want to be stressing about. Luckily, laminates are one of the easiest flooring surfaces to keep looking great. All you’ll need is a damp mop to handle the occasional deeper clean, or when you need to tackle a spill. A few wipes with the mop, along with a vinegar solution, or a manufacturer cleaning agent; and your laminate flooring will be instantly spotless again.
