Benefits of Laminate Flooring
So it’s time to get a new floor. This is a big decision, not to be taken lightly. This is a choice you are going to be stuck with for a good number of years. No pressure!
We understand that this can be a daunting task for people, after all, many questions need to be asked: Which type of floor should I get? What are the benefits of Laminate flooring? Why should I choose Laminate flooring over carpet?
Don’t worry though, you’ve got Glasgow’s finest on your side to help you through the process – the team down here at Modish Furnishing know a thing or two about flooring! So let’s have a look at the benefits of choosing laminate!
Laminate flooring is cost effective
One of the main factors for anyone when purchasing a new floor is cost. As with any purchase, this is a crucial element that needs to be taken into consideration when redecorating – where the costs can easily soar and you can quickly find yourself over-budget.
Laminate comes out on top against hardwood flooring and carpet when it comes to its cost effectiveness. When compared with hardwood flooring, made of natural materials such as oak and maple, the synthetic laminate is a lot cheaper to buy and fit. With carpet, it and laminate can be similarly priced; however, you’ll find yourself paying a lot more for a higher-end carpet than you will for the top-quality laminates.
Laminate flooring is easy to maintain
Another important thing to consider when buying a new floor: how much maintenance does it need? It’s tiresome enough having to choose a new floor and then to have it fitted, you don’t need the further inconvenience of cleaning, protecting and maintaining it.
This is what is required when you opt for a hardwood floor or carpet though. With natural wooden floors come the necessary upkeep, such as daily cleaning (with the right kind of products), ensuring it doesn’t get wet and making sure dust isn’t allowed to rest between the floor boards. Not to mention the anxiety you’ll face about scuffing the natural wood – shoes off at the door please!
Similarly, carpet comes with its own challenges – if you live in a house with pets, young children or even clumsy adults, you risk staining the carpet. Carpets with stains aren’t always easily cleaned up, and replacing a whole carpet because of one stain is something people often have to deal with.
With laminate, its composition protects it from spills and stains, which makes maintaining its appearance exceptionally easy to do. Semi-regular sweeping or vacuuming a laminate floor is all that is required to keep it in good shape.
Laminate flooring is versatile
The versatility of laminate flooring is another one of its great advantages. It can be installed over any existing flooring in the home, other than carpet. This makes the installation of laminate both easy and more cost effective than other types of flooring.
Its versatility also extends to where you can have it in the home; Laminate is an acceptable and suitable choice for any room in the home, whether it be in the living room, bathroom or kitchen.
There’s something for everyone
The synthetic nature of laminate flooring means you are met with mountains of choice when it comes to actually picking your design. For some, too much choice may seem like a burden, we say it’s a blessing though! Laminate gives you the opportunity to make your home feel unique to you. With such a range of options, you’ll definitely be able to find the right floor for you.
