Laminate flooring is a plank-style material that matches the appearance of natural hardwood.
Because they are made using an efficient manufacturing process, laminate flooring is also an eco-friendly installation option.
The best part?
Laminate can be styled to match almost any natural wood product without compromising hardness. That means you get the same durability no matter what style you choose for your home or office.
Shopping for Laminate Floors
The best part about shopping for new laminate the variety. You can find any type of wood grain style and even some stone.
As you look for the right style for your home or business, there are two main styles to consider: plastic laminate and engineered wood.
Here’s the difference.
Engineered wood is made from thin strips of real wood that are pressed together to form boards and plank. The outside layer is a thin piece of finished hardwood, coated with acrylic. This is the most natural looking laminate flooring installation.
As the name suggests, plastic laminate doesn’t use actual real wood. These plastic boards are a more scratch-resistant but less realistic-looking flooring option.
How to Maintain Laminate
Laminate may look like a wood or stone floor, but you will need to clean them differently.
Here are some common cleaning supplies you can use without damaging your finish:
- Dry mop
- Vacuum with a soft brush attachment
- Sponge mop
- Clean water — just water
- Homemade or store-bought laminate flooring cleaner
