Laminate Flooring Guide

Laminate is considered the first alternative to hardwood flooring, but in the past its reputation was nothing short of less than stellar. Laminate has changed though along with technology, making it even more realistic looking than ever before. Laminate is now known as durable, scratch, stain and fade resistant, easy to clean and hypoallergenic making it comparable to hardwood flooring.

There are several benefits to installing laminate in your home, and the experts at Feld's Carpet One Floor & Home in Avon and Greencastle, IL, are here to help you find the best laminate floor for your home. 

Laminate vs Hardwood

Laminate has the ability to mimic the look of hardwood flooring. Since wood look is such a popular flooring category, laminate is keeping up with hardwood trends. For example, rustic, reclaimed, and brushed wood are popular looks, and laminate can mimic all of them. You can achieve an authentic look making your home look more stylish.

Laminate flooring is durable and great for areas with a lot of foot traffic. It is constructed of multiple layers that are supportive, much like an engineered hardwood floor. No longer worry about chips or cracks with laminate, and they will not warp due to moisture. Although laminate is not waterproof, it is more resistant to water than hardwood.

Where can Laminate be Installed?

Laminate is good for rooms below, on, and above level. It is stylish enough for bedrooms, living rooms, and functional enough for kitchens. Avoid installing laminate in rooms with a lot of moisture such as bathrooms and laundry rooms.
