No doubt, luxury laminate flooring is considered as one of the hottest flooring trends in 2017, and for several good reasons. We have a look at the top 7 benefits of laminate flooring below, giving you an indication of why so many residences and offices now feature this type of affordable floor surface.
Friendly on the Wallet
You cannot deny the fact that any home renovation project costs money. For this reason, many want to create the best end-result at the lowest possible cost without compromising on aesthetic appeal, functionality, sustainability, and practicality, in addition to quality. Laminate is certainly the best option if you want to mimic genuine hardwood floors without having to break the bank in the process.
With laminates, you have a wide range of patterns and colours to select from and, best of all, laminates are priced affordably without any compromise on quality. You can thus get the same luxurious and stylish interior as with hardwood floors without making a huge dent in your renovation budget.
Many types of floor surfaces fade over time when exposed to sunlight. However, if you want a bit of natural light to penetrate the room, would you have to compromise on the flooring? You might have had to in the past, but modern laminate flooring is more fade-resistant than most floor surfaces and as such, it will take years before the sun takes its toll. You thus get a gorgeous floor that is both sustainable and durable.
Scratch and Impact Resistant
With their special upper wear layer, laminate floors can withstand the occasional scratches better than many other floor types. As such, you do not have the problem of enduring a floor dulled by scratches. Indeed, the floor has a tough upper layer and with it also the ability to handle a great deal of pressure per square centimetre. It is truly versatile and exceptionally strong.
Easy to Install
Unlike conventional ceramic tiles or hardwood floors that take a few days to install. The laminates can be snapped together through the special groove-click technology and you do not have to wait for days before being able to use the floor. Easier installation also means cost savings at the end of the day.
With no natural resources used, you can lower your environmental footprint. No hardwood trees are chopped down for the manufacture of luxury laminate floors. This is especially important if you want to ensure that your office has a green profile.
Easy to Clean and Maintain
Always keep in mind how much work it entails to keep a floor looking stunning for years. With laminate flooring, you can save on labour costs and chemicals, as the floors are virtually maintenance-free. Simply sweep regularly and vacuum once a week.
Laminate flooring does not have any spaces between sections where dust and debris can be trapped. As such, you benefit from the lower risk of allergies related to dust and mite.
Laminate is one of the few flooring products which have a universal grading system. Ensure the laminate that you select is graded AC3 and above.
