You may be wondering why you should choose laminate or engineered wood flooring over traditional wood flooring. There are many benefits of high-quality laminate and engineered wood flooring.
Laminate is much more budget friendly than hardwood. This means if your budget won’t allow you to choose hardwood you can still get the look and durability with laminate. However, even if price isn’t an issue, you may want to choose laminate flooring.
With hardwood, you are limited to what the wood looks like. Laminate allows you to choose many different colours and types of wood. Weathered planks in good condition are very difficult to find. Beautiful walnut flooring is hard to find and may be out of your price range. Laminate and engineered wood flooring put these looks within easy reach.
Laminate is also very versatile. You don’t see hardwood in bathrooms or kitchens often, because it doesn’t stand up to water well. If you are dreaming of a spa bathroom with beautiful wood floors, laminate is for you.
Laminate is also very low maintenance. The sealing applied to the floor allows you to simply sweep the floor to clean it. It doesn’t harbour allergens or mould like carpet, making it a good choice for anyone with allergies. It’s very durable and it’s resistant to water and stains. These features make it a great choice for busy families.
