There are so many important aspects to laminate’s personality that it’s hard to find a place to start when discussing its many benefits. From the way it so perfectly mimics all natural materials, to its excellent ability to be included in almost any space in your home; you’re going to love it too. Here, we will discuss a bit more about how it can be used, what it has to offer and spaces where it makes a great impact. If you’ve never considered this floor covering before, now may be the best time to do a bit more research.

At first glance, you may think you’re walking on or looking at solid wood, porcelain tile, or one of many types of all natural stone. That’s because laminate does such an excellent job of mimicking these materials. As the first wood-look flooring to be featured in the United States, it has come a long way since the early 1990s. With more amazing looks than ever and more benefits for every homeowner, it has quickly become a leading material on the flooring market.
The appearance of your floors is important, but other benefits are too. For instance, you’ll find great durability in this material. Its construction is such that it handles a variety of traffic, and holds up in some of the busiest homes. In fact, pet nails, high heels, and rambunctious children are no match for this floor covering.
The thickness of laminate goes a long way in determining the life span of the flooring, but so does the top protective wear layer. This also varies in thickness, and the thicker you choose, the more protection you will get. You will notice fewer dings, scratches, scuffs, and stains, and even fading is kept to a minimum, even in direct sunlight.
