Have you been considering installing new flooring in your home, office, or commercial space? Choosing the right flooring option is vital to making the most of your area and ensuring you have the right foundation for your daily needs. If you’ve been doing some research, you’ve likely come across laminate flooring, which is one of today’s most popular selections, and for good reason! In addition to being durable and cost-effective (more on that below), laminate makes it easy to customize your space without any headaches and the confidence of knowing that your selection will stand the test of time. Below, we’ll cover some of the main perks of working with laminate, as well as partnering with Ashley Fine Floors. Read on to learn more!

Big Space, Little Cost

Whether you’re refurbishing an entire floor or just need to replace a smaller room that’s begun to show its age, it’s no secret that budget plays a huge role in determining your overall selection. While you may love the look of traditional hardwood, for example, few are a big fan of the cost when it comes to outfitting larger spaces. Laminate, on the other hand, makes it easy to outfit a bigger area without breaking the bank or sacrificing quality. Best of all, laminate is available in a wide range of patterns and colours, meaning you’ll have plenty to choose from.

Easy to Install

Tired of looking at options that will leave you facing multiple days of downtime while your current floors are torn up, and the new pieces are installed? Laminate gives you an easy solution that will have your home or property back to (an improved) normal in no time! Most laminate planks can simply be “clicked” into place, and can even be so straightforward that you might be able to consider a DIY install if you have previous experience.

Scratch and Fade Resistant

There’s nothing worse than installing new floors, only to find them tarnished by wear and tear within a matter of weeks or months. Laminate flooring is incredibly resilient and can hold its own, meaning that you’re less at risk for scratches or sudden fading, even if you have children or pets running around your home.

Easy to Maintain

One of the most attractive perks about laminate for those who live busy lifestyles is that they require relatively minor upkeep to stay in top shape. Weekly sweeping and mopping can go a long way towards keeping dirt and grime at bay, as can spot cleaning when needed and doing a deeper clean every so often.

Environment Friendly

Finally, as we close in on the end of 2021, it’s no surprise that environmental sustainability is closer to the front of everyone’s minds than ever before. Both modern and older homes are always looking to do their part and reduce their overall “footprint” where environmental impact is concerned. Since laminate is not created using natural resources (no trees are cut down, etc), you can rest a little easier knowing that laminate helps to reduce strain giving you a green star where eco-friendliness is concerned!
