7 Benefits of Laminate Flooring
Why do people choose laminate flooring?
Knowing the different options in flooring helps you make the best decision for your home.
Laminate flooring feels similar to hardwood under your feet.
Laminate flooring is harder to scratch than luxury vinyl plank floors.
Many laminate floors are water resistant. (There is a difference between water resistant flooring and waterproof flooring. You can evaluate how you will use your flooring to make the best decision for your home. If you are looking for a waterproof flooring, one option to consider is a waterproof luxury vinyl plank.)
COLOR & STYLE
Laminate flooring comes in a wide variety of styles and colors to coordinate with your decor. In our Colorado Springs showroom, we carry hundreds of the latest styles as well as a range of traditional styles.
Laminate flooring is less expensive than hardwood or engineered hardwood flooring. The cost is similar to luxury vinyl plank flooring.
EASY TO CLEAN
Cleaning is simple, sweep and dry mop. NEVER wet or steam mop a laminate floor. Each floor manufacturer will provide a detailed list of cleaning and maintenance information.
Clean as above and do not drop heavy objects on flooring.
Use furniture pads when moving furniture.
EASY TO INSTALL
No gluing or nailing. The planks are cut lengthwise with a saw and fit together snuggly. Lifestyle Floors offers full installation if you do not want to tackle the installation yourself.
Level Floors – a level floor will help your floors hold up and look great. We offer floor leveling when needed.
Space Under Baseboards – a laminate floor is a floating floor and having a little space under the baseboards for movement will help your floors look great over time. Baseboards should be removed before installation when possible and re-installed after completion.
