Why You Need Laminate Flooring in Your Home

If you love the luxurious look and feel of wood flooring but don't love the idea of breaking the bank or worrying over every step, spill or footprint tracked across it, you should consider laminate. With advanced technologies, top brands are turning out laminate that looks so close to the real thing, you have to have a practiced eye to tell the difference. With so many benefits, you need laminate flooring for your Edmonton home and lifestyle!

Durable Alternative to Wood

Laminate is a lot tougher than it was when it first came onto the market. With a strong core and several wear layers, laminate is resistant to what a busy Edmonton family can throw at it. These days, it's more resistant to stains, scratches and dents than ever before. With some high-end laminate flooring, specialty coatings with aluminum crystals make it particularly suitable for high traffic areas in your home.

So Easy to Maintain!

Who wants to spend hours on their hands and knees scrubbing and polishing floors? Okay, that's not how we do things these days, but laminate is some of the easiest flooring to care for. A quick sweep or vacuum with a bare floor attachment keeps the everyday dust buildup at bay and a light mopping gets rid of any spills, or dirt tracked in by kids or pets. Although you should still wipe up spills as soon as possible, you don't have to worry near as much as you would with solid wood flooring.

It Just Looks So Good!

The wood look in your laminate flooring is created using a printer that creates a three-dimensional image. This layer is applied over high-density fiberboard, then a hard-wearing protective layer is laid down over it. Today's printing technologies are so advanced that you get the beautiful warmth and traditional styling only wood can create for your Edmonton home, without the expense or stress genuine hardwoods can create. Not only will your home look great, you'll get that look for less money and have more options to choose from.

Since the design portion is printed, there are more colour choices and styles available to suit any taste. You can even opt for flooring that comes with worm holes, knots and colour variances to mimic the look of natural wood perfectly!
