Laminate continues to be a flooring option for those who are on a budget, but want the look of hardwood in their home. You can turn to us for the latest news and knowledge about laminate flooring so you can make an educated purchase for your home.
The original laminate flooring option was clearly not an alternative to hardwood because of its less than realistic looks. Changes in manufacturing and advances in digital printing technology have transformed laminate into what it is today. Laminate today is stylish and made to be incredibly durable while still remaining affordable.
Since laminate is not made from real wood, it does not need to be harvested or milled which makes it less expensive than hardwood. Laminate planks do not have to be refinished and are resistant to dents and scratches. Many laminate brands are coming out with waterproof options in addition to their water resistant ones. Laminate floors were made with active households in mind, and can handle daily activity.
Laminate flooring can be installed anywhere you would install hardwood, and more. For example, you can install laminate in bedrooms, living rooms, offices, and children’s playrooms. You can also install laminate in kitchens, hallways, and stairs. Their layered construction makes them resistant to heavy traffic and able to withstand daily activity. They also will not react to changes in humidity or weather.
As your local flooring retailer, we carry well known laminate brand names as well as our very own Carpet One Floor & Home exclusive brands like Laminate for Life™. Our membership with the Carpet One Floor & Home cooperative allows us the ability to provide you with quality flooring at exceptional prices.
