What you should know about laminate

If you’re new to laminate floor coverings, you should know that wood-look isn’t the only option you have in this product line. You can also find replicas of all natural stone as well as ceramic and porcelain tile lookalikes. Better still, they are so realistic; thanks to the high resolution printing process used to create them, your guests will never know they aren’t walking on the real thing.

One does not necessarily associate hard-surface flooring with such ideas as comfort and noise reduction. However, with the addition of an underlayment, it is definitely an option with this one. With a softer step and more comfort when standing for activities such as meal prep and dish washing, you’ll fall in love with laminate. Since it’s softer, it’s also warmer underfoot and can reduce the noise in your home by impressive amounts. This is great for busy households, or any home where clicking footsteps are unwanted.

Laminate also offers water resistant options, which make it much more applicable for kitchen, foyer, and bathroom placement. It’s less likely to react to humidity, moisture, and spills, and can offer a bit more peace of mind. Since spills can happen anywhere, however, it’s a great addition to any room, especially with children in the home.

Laminate, with its click and lock installation feature, is a quick and easy install. Since installers save time putting the floor into place, you’ll save more money on the installation procession as well.
