There are plenty of solutions to pick from when it comes to finding the perfect flooring for our homes. One can easily get lost in the sea of information and product offerings. There’s one option that one should consider, above all, and get to know better: it’s the laminate flooring. Our daily design inspiration will be around this versatile floor system as we visit some amazing living spaces around the globe.
It’s less known that laminate has a rather long and rich history. It was invented in Sweden more than 40 years ago and has come a long way since the seventies. Over the past decades and years, thanks to the streamlined methods and design, laminate is more attractive than ever. It’s not only aesthetically appealing, but there are countless amazing styles and textures to choose from. Wood, stone, tile or slate, these are all possible options. The available textures are truly authentic and all homeowners will be pleased with variety of looks and cozy ambiance they might create.
More importantly, we should highlight one of the most attractive characteristics of laminate flooring: the price. It costs less than carpeting or hardwood flooring and maintenance is much simpler and cheaper, too: laminate doesn’t need the regular maintenance and care of carpeting or hardwood.
We’re sure that eco warriors also will opt for this flooring option: it has a very good reputation of being Earth-friendly in many ways. First of all, no tree needs to be chopped down during the production process and at the end of product’s lifetime, it can be easily recycled or re-used. Laminate floors are also great for pet owners: they are healthier and easier to clean than some other flooring options as they attract less bacteria, microbes or allergens.
The ease of installation is another great plus. One doesn’t need to be professional to install laminate floors: most people are able to install the flooring all by themselves. The only installation requirement is having a flat and even surface regardless of its material. Some brands, for example, don’t even require glue or any special tools to install.
