Advantages of laminate flooring
Laminate flooring offers the natural beauty of timber flooring, without the price tag. If you love the look and feel of timber but want to keep your costs down, then laminate offers a great alternative.
Some types of timber can also be susceptible to damage due to daily wear and tear. Luckily, laminate offers a more robust flooring option.
It’s also possible to replicate many different native woodgrains. Laminate is scratch, dent, fade, and stain-resistant. Besides being low maintenance, it’s also easy to clean, hygienic and hypoallergenic.
Laminate is the perfect choice in areas of the home where there is a lot of foot traffic. It’s ideal for hallways, living areas, and kitchens. You should avoid using it in wet areas like bathrooms and laundries though. This is because when laminate flooring gets thoroughly soaked with water, it becomes damaged and warped. If the water manages to get between the seams of the floor planks, it also causes them to swell.
