5 Reasons Why Laminate Flooring Can Be an Ideal Solution for Your Home
Today’s laminate flooring is vastly different than the styles that were first introduced to the flooring industry in the 1970s. With improvements in flooring manufacturing technology, laminate has come a long way, quickly making it a popular choice for homeowners. Laminate combines durability, versatility, value, and a realistic appearance for incredible results. Here are five reasons why laminate can be an ideal flooring solution for your home:
1. Pet and Family-Friendly
Laminate floors are durable while being both pet-friendly and family-friendly in high-traffic areas. During a lamination process of heat and pressure, laminate flooring’s layers are fused together for enhanced strength and stability for a highly realistic wood look. The top layer helps protect the laminate floor from fading, stains, and wear, while an advanced tongue-and-groove locking system combined with each layer helps it maintain high levels of durability for pet and family-friendly homes.
2. Great for Many Rooms
Laminate flooring’s versatility allows it to be installed in almost any room in your home—even those rooms that receive a lot of traffic, such as entryways and family rooms. You’ll even love how easily laminate floors clean up in the kitchen. Wherever you want the beauty of hardwood, stone or tile without the need for high maintenance, laminate may be a great flooring option. Just make sure to avoid putting it in wet areas, such as a bathroom. Lingering moisture and wood don’t get along.
3. Exceptional Value
If you’re searching for an exceptional value, laminate flooring might be your best bet. Laminate floors are a great hardwood alternative for budget-conscious homeowners. As manufacturing technology continues to improve, Empire’s laminate options realistically emulate the look and feel of Hardwood without the expensive price tag.
4. Easier to Clean
Another reason why we love laminate Flooring at Empire Today? It’s flooring that is easier to clean! Laminate Flooring pairs the beauty of natural wood with less added maintenance. Dust can be easily eliminated, and spills may require only a vacuum, broom, or a slightly damp mop. Now that’s easy! With its ease of maintenance, you can get years of beautiful performance from your laminate floor.
5. Highly Realistic Look and Feel
In the past, many people might have been able to tell that laminate was artificial wood, but with technological advances it can be difficult to tell the difference. Laminate reproduces grains, coloring, and tight tongue-and-groove locking systems for a highly realistic hardwood look and feel. Not only do the grain and knots look like real wood, the texture is also like real wood as well.
It’s obvious why laminate flooring continues to grow in popularity throughout American homes today—it’s durable, can be used in many rooms, an exceptional value, easier to clean, and maintains an authentic hardwood aesthetic.
