Cheat Sheet On Flooring Options- Part Three: Laminate
At Scottsdale Flooring, we have over 400 laminate flooring options for you to choose from. This allows you to create a look that reflects your personal sense of style in a flooring option designed to look like everything from natural stone, to hardwood, and even ceramic tiles. Below are just a few reasons laminate is one of the fastest growing trends in home flooring.
Cheat Sheet on Flooring Options: Laminate | Scottsdale Flooring America
The Look And Finish You Want, Without The Hefty Price Point
Many home owners select laminate flooring, because it is difficult to distinguish from the natural materials it is made to mimic, but at a far more desirable price point. On average, our “hardwood” laminate flooring options are about half the price of actual hardwood floors. They are often far less than half the price of their natural stone counterparts, and laminate is even less expensive than carpeting.You can select laminate with a smooth finish and an entirely uniform appearance, or you can choose stone or hardwood inspired options that are hand-scarped or designed to have the distressed look of natural wood or stone.
Long Lasting Durability
Laminate flooring can withstand up to 1,200 pounds of pressure per square inch. While the average homeowner does not require such durability, you won’t need to fret when moving large or heavy items of furniture. Laminate flooring options vary from one brand and model to the next, but come with warranties that average 15 to 30 years.
Easy Cleaning And Maintenance
Laminate can be swept, vacuumed, or mopped. Unlike wood, it does not require wax or refinishing. Spills are quick and easy to clean, and with the built-in wear layer, staining is unlikely. Too much moisture will damage laminate, so make sure you do not use too much water when cleaning, and that all spills are addressed quickly.
Fast and Easy Installation
Laminate sheet sizes vary, but are typically available in 4 foot strips or in large tiles. This makes installation fast and easy—especially when compared to actual hardwood or hand-laid stonework.
Making Your Laminate Flooring Feel Cozy
Laminate provides you with a smooth and clean finish. Once installed, you may search for a few ways to add more warmth and personality. You can achieve this by placing colorful and comfortable runners and area rugs throughout. While the laminate does not require either for durability, adding a few area rugs will really personalize each room.To learn more about our laminate flooring options, contact the Scottsdale Flooring team today at 480-451-9600.
