About Laminate Flooring

When it comes to choosing the flooring for your home there are tons of different factors to keep in mind. What brand, what style, what material and so much more are all considerations that make a huge difference in the final product that you select. That being said, laminate flooring is a wonderful option for a wide range of reasons.

Laminate Flooring Benefits

Laminate flooring has a great number of benefits for your home. The first is of course that laminate is far more sustainable and inexpensive than real hard wood flooring. Laminate is made through a man made process so you do not have to worry about renewability of the materials that are going into the production. This also means that they are going to be far more durable than hardwoods as they are not as soft and susceptible to damage and to daily wear. Laminate is just one of a few wonderful flooring options.

Even a well sealed hardwood floor is going to take daily damage and is going to show its age over time. A great laminate is going to far outlast your typical hardwoods. Carpet One has a wonderful selection of laminate flooring that can be customized to any home or space in which it is being installed. You are going to have a floor that is also easier to clean and easier to keep in good shape.

Laminate Flooring vs. Hardwood

Touching on price, laminate flooring also delivers the look and feel of hardwood for a fraction of the price. Though you are going to have a floor that looks like hardwood, you are going to pay less than half the cost of an expensive hardwood floor. Laminate is also perfect for those homes that may not have the proper subfloor to affix hardwood. Those homes that are built on concrete slabs for instance cannot have hardwood unless it is glued or is a floated hardwood. Laminate works in these spaces perfectly and still gives the look of hardwood.
