Laminate flooring has long been admired for its ability to offer the wood-look, creating an elegant atmosphere in your home. In fact, that is one of the main reasons behind its popularity. Other floor coverings also have the wood look and many other benefits as well. However, those that are loyal to this material are appreciative that is has moved right along with the times, as technology has improved.

Laminate Benefits You Can’t Miss
Laminate flooring is one of the easiest floorings to install, sitting together almost like a puzzle. Featuring click and lock or fold and lock options, the process is quick and easy. These planks are also constructed of particleboard, which can often be cut, if necessary, with a utility knife or hand saw.
This is a floor covering that can be placed in “semi-moist” rooms like kitchens and bathrooms, or any other room that is prone to what some manufacturers call topical moisture. In these situations, it’s best that the boards sit tightly against one another, so that nothing can penetrate the crevices. If you know that standing water might be an issue, speak to your flooring professional about waterproof laminate flooring.
Durability is a feature that comes naturally to laminate. Hardwood floors are often easy to dent, which is normal for that kind of flooring. However, this material is nearly impervious to both scratches and dents alike. Of course, the thicker the flooring, the more protection and durability you will have so be sure to ask about this.
If you choose this particular material, you definitely want to consider the addition of an underlayment. Without it, it feels harder underfoot. However, when the underlayment is added, it will have an almost springy feel, and will be much easier to stand on for longer periods of time. This comes in handy, especially when standing in front of the stove while cooking, or in front of the sink, doing dishes.
