If you are looking to re-do your flooring and do not want the usual ceramic or porcelain tiles, and want to opt for a wooden floor, then
- You have good taste
- You have to choose between several options available for wooden flooring based on your choice, budget, and maintenance capacity.
However, we are here to make a case in favor of laminated flooring. It’s synthetic wood that looks exactly like some of the more expensive hardwood, can be colored in any color you want, and is worth a fraction of the cost in terms of purchase, installation, and maintenance.
We believe that laminated flooring doesn’t get the attention it deserves, simply because it is brushed off as a ’cheaper alternative to wood’. Which is true. We think there are valid reasons for the increase in popularity and demand for laminate flooring, and so here are some reasons to choose laminated wood.
It is Cost effective
Since wooden tiles obviously have to be sourced from trees, and certain types of hardwood trees such as cherry, mahogany, or oak may only be native to particular areas or regions, the cost of the tiles is really high as they have to be transported and developed into tiles. Laminated wood on the other hand is made synthetically so it is cheaper and lighter.
In addition, laminated tiles are also easier to install and give a very similar look to that hardwood tiles. It is so easy to install that laminate floor installation could be your next DIY home renovation project.
Not only is laminate flooring easy to install, it is also easier to maintain as it is more durable and sturdier than wood. There are some varieties of laminate flooring that are completely waterproof so you don’t have to worry about damage due to spills or leakages, which is a common concern in hardwood flooring. Laminate is a strong material that is resistant to scratches and stains, and so even if it is installed in a busier area of the home, such as the corridor or the living room, it is very less likely to be damaged as it is almost impossible to break or damage laminate floor tiles (under normal circumstances, of course)
Variety of options
One of the best things about being alive in modern times is the ability to choose between varieties and materials. Laminate flooring also comes in many varieties of quality, design, size, and color. This allows you to choose whatever print and color you want. If in case you desire the floor tiles to resemble some hardwood, such as pine, walnut, or cherry, it is possible with laminate flooring and you get to experience consistency in both color and pattern and digital printing techniques on some laminates even mimic the texture of the wood.
This will give you the look and feel you desire at a fraction of the effort and price that buying and installing hardwood would require.
Environment and Health
Would you believe that in addition to all of the above, laminate flooring is actually good for your health and your environment? Since laminate floor panels are fixed with no spaces and the material itself is smooth, it is also clean and hygienic as the dust, microbes, and fungi have no space to hide and build up.
Laminate is also, therefore, a safer option for people prone to allergies and asthma since it is free of chemicals, preservatives, solvents and sometimes even paint. It is also easy to clean as dirty shows on the floor can just be mopped away without much hassle. Hence it also contributes to a cleaner environment at your home.
