Laminate wood flooring is one of the most popular options for homeowners looking to replace carpeting. It is an affordable flooring option that also has the added benefits of being easy to clean, and you can put it wherever you want in your house. Plus, it looks great!
Laminate wood floors are both attractive and functional which makes them a great way to update your home without doing any major remodeling.
Focus on Quality Materials
There are a few important things to keep in mind when shopping for laminate wood flooring materials. One is the fact that laminate wood flooring is made with multiple layers of wood or other material that looks like wood layered on top of each other. So, you have to make sure the layers are of good quality. The best layers are made of natural hardwoods, especially oak and maple. This is because they will wear better than non-natural woods.
Laminate floors also have a protective coating between the layers which makes them durable and scratch-resistant as long as you take good care of them. Be sure to take good care of this coating and make sure you are using a laminate floor cleaner that is appropriate for your flooring. You can also do an extra step to ensure the longevity of your floor, making sure the floors are moisture-resistant underlayment.
Laminate floors are very easy to install because they come in an unassembled kit. Just follow the manufacturer’s directions and watch their video to see exactly how it’s done. You can order all of the materials you will need in one box when you go shopping and save money by not buying multiple items at a time.
