What is the Benefit of Laminated Flooring

By Paige Cerulli Created: November, 2022 - Modified: November, 2022

As you explore the different flooring options available for your home or business, chances are you’ve seen laminated flooring products. Laminated flooring has become increasingly popular, and when you consider the benefits it offers, it’s easy to see why.

Benefits of Laminated Flooring

  • Realistic wood look

  • Cost effective

  • Durable

  • Easy to maintain

With laminated flooring, you can achieve the look of real wood at a lower price per square foot than you would pay for genuine hardwood flooring. The ability to install many laminate flooring products yourself also adds to its cost-effectiveness and convenience.

Some laminate products are extremely hard-wearing, making them a better choice for high-traffic areas than wood flooring. Laminate products, like planks, also feature an upper wear layer that provides enhanced scratch resistance, keeping the products looking their best.

Maintaining laminate is also easy. You can wipe up spills and sweep or mop most products, so there’s no specialized or intense maintenance needs to worry about.

As you shop for laminated flooring, you will have your choice of many different styles, including products that closely resemble woods like oak and maple. Many of these products are highly realistic and, with so many options to choose from, you can find a product that provides the specific aesthetic that you’re looking for.
