What's beneath your feet may make or break your living environment. While the flooring might be something that you take for granted, you should know that the different types of flooring are what will affect the overall aesthetics and appearance of your home.

One of the most trending flooring styles, which you can find everywhere be it home, office, cafes, malls, etc. is laminate flooring. Choosing the correct flooring for your home is a critical task and a big investment. 

What is Laminate Flooring?

It is a hybrid flooring which means it is made up of multiple layers of several materials like wood, stone, and tile; all in one. It is prepared by processing the various materials under specific conditions of high temperature and pressure.

Types of Laminate Flooring

This flooring option comes in a large variety of styles, sizes, and designs. However, the two main types of laminate flooring are engineered wood and plastic laminate. Both of these provide an excellent finished look of real wooden flooring by marginally cutting down on costs and requiring zero to no maintenance. It can be installed in different parts of your home including the kitchen, bathroom, and on the walls. When installed correctly, it proves to be the prime choice for homeowners.

 

Pros and Cons 

Laminate flooring is often stereotyped as flooring that is easy to scratch and not super durable. But in reality, this hybrid provides the finest qualities and properties of different flooring options available in the market and makes it an excellent choice for upgrading your home floors while keeping the budget in your mind and being easy on your pocket. Some of the benefits of laminate flooring are:

 

  • Highly durable
  • Easy to clean and maintain
