Laminate flooring is a type of construction material that consists of two or more layers. The top layer, which typically has the design pattern printed on it, is known as the wear layer.
Laminate flooring is made up of multiple materials such as wood veneers and synthetic resins in order to provide high resistance to scuffs while also being resistant against moisture absorption/penetration (which can cause mould), making them perfect for different rooms in your home.
There are many factors to consider when picking out flooring for your homes, such as durability and cost. The type of room should be one factor you take into account before deciding on the right material!
For example, hardwood is a great choice in family rooms because it can handle high traffic areas well and has the beautiful underfoot feel of real wood. However, as it is genuine hardwood it does come at a higher price point. In contrast, laminate flooring is a great option as the average price point is much lower than that of genuine wood, it is quick and easy to install and an inexpensive way to transform any room.
Be sure when planning the look and feel of a room, you pay particular attention to how the flooring colour and look can help complement the aesthetic.
Yes, it is!
The process of installing laminate flooring can be broken down into three easy steps.
First, you want to make sure the surface where the new floors will go has been cleaned and prepared for installation by removing any existing debris or old carpeting that may have once laid on top of your current hardwood or linoleum tiles.
Second, dry-lay your planks to ensure you mix up any repeating patterns and do not place them together.
Thirdly, read over instructions carefully before starting assembly - everything usually goes smoother if you know the installation process.

Laminate flooring is a popular choice for kitchens because it's durable, easy to clean and looks great.
In the past, laminate flooring was not considered a good choice for kitchens due to its susceptibility to moisture and heat. However, new technology has improved upon this issue so that now the material is safe enough for use in kitchens as well as high-traffic areas like hallways or laundry rooms. Laminate floors are easy to clean with soap and water - no need for harsh cleaners.
