Over the years, laminate has improved dramatically. Most homeowners are aware that laminate is more affordable than traditional hardwood, but they may not realize that laminate’s appearance has become far more convincing. Beyond just appearances, laminate offers many benefits for busy households. At Kemp’s Dalton West Flooring, we want to help you find flooring that will enhance the look and function of your home. If you are considering new flooring, explore the benefits of laminate to see if it might be a good fit for your needs:
Durability—With more recent advancements, laminate flooring is made with a patented protective design which helps the floor remain virtually life proof and long-lasting. Laminate is an ideal choice for any home, especially homes with pets or small children. There are also several varieties of laminate which are entirely waterproof, withstanding all the spills of life. Additionally, laminate is scuff and scratch proof. If you are looking for a flooring that is meant to last and endure, laminate is ideal.
Ease of Care—The beauty of hardwood flooring is undeniable, but the beauty comes at a cost in terms of maintenance. Traditional hardwood flooring must be cleaned with specific products and conditioned with oil to maintain in. Also, when a spill happens, you must be concerned with cleaning it up quickly to avoid damage. With laminate, regular maintenance is very minimal. Running a vacuum, a dry mop, or a damp mop occasionally will be all it takes to keep the floor looking impressive. Laminate provides a beautiful hardwood look without the intense maintenance efforts.
Convincing Appearance—With the advancements made in laminate flooring, many homeowners have difficulty distinguishing between laminate and traditional hardwood. There are many different patterns of planks so they can more effectively mimic the unique appearance of each hardwood plank. Laminate flooring is printed with rich colors to deliver the lasting hardwood appearance you want for a fraction of the cost.
The laminate of today is so much better than the laminate of decades past.
