Today's homeowners are faced with a myriad of choices when it comes to the type of flooring they can use in their homes. One of the options that continues to gain in popularity for many reasons is laminate. Below are just a few of the benefits of laminate flooring you should know about.

1. Budget-Friendly

If you're like many homeowners, you love the look of hardwood but find its cost to be prohibitive to your budget. Laminate flooring gives you the rich look of hardwood at a more affordable cost.

2. Numerous Styles

As mentioned previously, laminate flooring comes in styles that mimic the look, warmth, and richness of real hardwood. However, you can also easily find laminate flooring in finishes such as tile and stone. You'll find a diverse selection of tones, colors, thicknesses, plank styles, and surface treatments as well.

3. Easy Care

Laminate flooring is covered by a durable external layer of resin coating. This makes the flooring resistant to scratches and fading from the sunlight. This strong and durable flooring is easy to clean, and no special cleansers are necessary.

4. Versatile

Nearly any room in your home is a good place to have laminate flooring installed. In addition, laminate flooring is versatile enough to be installed on almost any type of subflooring material, including vinyl floors that are already there, concrete, and more. This versatility makes laminate flooring an option when hardwood floors aren't compatible with the subfloor. However, because laminate is moisture resistant but not waterproof, it's not the ideal flooring material to install in your bathroom, laundry room, or another area where water leaks might occur.

5. Allergen-Free

Laminate flooring is a great alternative to carpet for families that have allergies. This is because dust, debris, and other particles have nowhere to become trapped. The underlayment of the laminate flooring helps prevent mold from forming as well as protects the floor from damage.

If you're looking for an affordable, beautiful, durable, and easy-to-care-for flooring material for a high-traffic area, take a look at laminate flooring. Ideal for environments with pets, small children, and lots of foot traffic, laminate flooring is also a stylish choice for luxury homes.
