Choose laminate wood flooring for your home

Last month we mentioned a few very good reasons as to why you should choose laminate wood flooring for your home. This month we continue with a few more in case you still haven’t seen the light.

  1. Resale Value – It has been proven that houses with laminate wood flooring in good condition are more in demand than houses with carpet or tiled floors. By installing laminate wood flooring, you are sure to increase the resale value of your property.
  2. Adaptability with subfloor variations – there are not many flooring options that offer the flexibility to cover any type of subflooring. Laminate flooring can be laid on top of just about any surface including concrete, real wood or existing ceramic or vinyl tiling. You will not need to worry about preparing the floor before installing as laminate flooring can be installed on any surface as long as it is clean, dry and level.\
  3. Easy to clean – laminate flooring is one of the easiest floors to clean. All you need is a vacuum, a mop and for more difficult spills, a damp cloth. You do not need to use floor polish or wax products as these create a film on the surface and attract more dirt. You also do not need to use soap based or abrasive products as these may damage the finish. Laminate flooring is easy and cheap to clean.
  4. Maintenance – Laminate wood floors are incredibly easy to look after and require very little maintenance. In order to avoid scratches it is advisable to place felt underneath chair legs so to minimise the risk. Laminate flooring is very easy to replace should it become damaged for any reason.\
  5. Non-toxic – Laminate floors are a firm favorite in childrens bedrooms they don’t contain any plasticisers (phthalates). This makes them non-toxic and safe for your children. They are also incredibly easy to clean in high mess areas such as a childs room.\
  6. Authentic looking – due to the immense changes in technology, laminate wood floors look incredibly authentic with wood grain and stone structures. Long gone are the days where laminate floors looked fake and cheap.
