Laminate floors have become a popular flooring choice, especially for high traffic areas. A quite common flooring material that originated in Europe, laminate can be found in many patterns and colours.
Laminate flooring is designed to be well protected by a tough outer coating that is impervious to most stains, spills, and burns, and is extremely scratch-resistant. Floors come in both planks and tiles and can be floated over most sub-flooring including concrete slabs and existing floor coverings.
Laminate flooring is not only incredibly durable and easy to care for, but also retails in variety of realistic stone and wood flooring designs. If you desire the look of hardwood floors but are too concerned with its upkeep then laminate floors are your best answer. Also, if you are troubled with tearing up old flooring or are financially conscious, then laminate flooring may be an option you want to consider.
