Important laminate flooring information

When you want an authentic wood look for your floors, but you’re not ready to commit to the real thing, laminate flooring is an excellent alternative. It’s just as elegant, keeps up just as well with all the major decor trends, and even has a formidable lifespan too. The fact is, it’s hard to go wrong with this material. For those concerned with durability, you get that as well. And you’ll find out even more as you continue reading.

What you need to know about laminate

This is a durable alternative to hardwood floors that not only offers the look of real wood, but also of natural stone, tile, and shiplap as well. With such a wide variety of looks to choose from, it’s not going to be hard to find something to match your existing decor. What’s more, the look you choose will more than likely stand up to a few trend changes as well, without having to be replaced on those grounds.

When your laminate flooring arrives at your home, it will need between 24 and 72 hours for acclimation purposes. The difference in acclimation times depends on the specific product to be installed. It helps to make sure no moisture or temperature changes will cause your flooring to be altered in any way.
You’ll love how easy laminate is to keep clean. It’s stain and scratch resistant, so you should only need a broom and mop to keep these floors looking their best. For heftier messes, a bit of warm soapy water should do the trick, but do make sure not to allow any water to stand on your floors unless they are water resistant.

For added comfort, make sure you add an underlayment beneath this material. It adds a bit of resilience, as well as making it warmer to the touch. What’s more, it can even help to reduce noise levels in active homes.
