Laminate vs Hardwood Flooring
If you are looking for natural flooring but are on a tight budget, then consider laminate flooring as an alternative. Laminate is made up of man-made products, making it significantly less expensive than hardwood or stone. Dents and scratches are less common with laminated flooring, and unlike hardwood laminate floors never need to be refinished.
Digital printing technology has come a long way since laminate was first introduced to the market. Now laminate can look just like real hardwood or stone, but it still cannot replace the beauty and feel of real hardwood floors. Laminate floors are less expensive in both material and labor costs compared to hardwood therefore, if price is a major issue, then consider laminate.
Anywhere you can install engineered hardwood in you can install laminate. Laminate’s durability allows it to be installed in places like kitchens and entryways. Laminate can replicate the look of real hardwood, so you can install it in bedrooms, living rooms, and hallways and your gusts won’t be able to tell the difference unless you tell them.
Laminate floors are available in a floating floor system and do not have to be glued down. Floating floors are fast and easy to install, and you can walk on them the same day. Laminate flooring requires very little maintenance compared to hardwood flooring. Regular sweeping and vacuuming are the best ways of taking care of laminate floors. Spills should be wiped up immediately and occasional mopping with manufacturer approved products is recommended.
