With laminate, you’ve always been able to find an amazing realistic wood-look material with tons of great features, all at an affordable price. Now, you can also find this material that mimics stone and tile flooring as well, with amazing realism. The amount of color-variety and textural differences means your decor will always find its perfect match in this flooring, or you can build around it to create an entirely new look.
Durability is important to today’s busy families, especially if you have pets or children. It seems like there’s always something going on, and guests are often in and out, but that doesn’t have to mean disaster for your floors. Quite to the contrary, you can expect these floors not only to stand up well under the circumstances but to look nearly new for most of their lifespan. You can maintain that look by daily sweeping and mopping and also by placing runners and area rugs where they can capture the largest amount of loose debris.
Laminate now comes with a water-resistant option that not only makes it a better fit for kitchens, foyers, and bathrooms, but that can offer more peace of mind in every space. Those with children know spills can happen anywhere, so why not be prepared well in advance? While not 100% waterproof, you’ll find these floors give you more time to clean up any messes that happen.
