The first thing you’ll notice about laminate flooring is the gorgeous appearance of the material. You can find floor coverings that mimic solid hardwood, porcelain tile, and many stone varieties so matching your existing decor is never a problem. In these looks alone, there are extensive varieties of hues, grain patterns, veins, and even authentic looking grout lines, so you’ll never be bored with the number of options you have.
Laminate provides excellent stability, even when installed over flooring that was uneven to start with. The ability to install these materials over a variety of subfloors makes it a perfect product for older homes where the original floors may be a bit less than perfect. What’s more, the click and lock installation system means your installers will be able to quickly finish the job, leaving you with floors you can walk on immediately.
If you’re looking for a bit more peace of mind, be sure to ask about waterproof laminate. It’s still available in a wide variety of looks, so you’ll still get the same ease of decor matching. However, it offers much more protection and peace of mind, especially in areas where it may not have been the perfect material otherwise.
