Make Your Space Modern with Laminate Wood Flooring

There are several options when installing residential flooring. What you end up with depends on the aesthetic you want for your space, how much maintenance you’re willing to do, and how durable you need your flooring to be. 

When you want to modernize your home, whether you’re looking to sell or want to add value or a fresh look, flooring plays a huge role in this process. One way to do this is with wood flooring. Modern wood flooring always brings new life to a space and will pretty much always be in style. But hardwood floors are costly and must be regularly maintained to avoid mold and mildew issues, dust and debris damages, and more. 

If you’d like the look of wood flooring without the cost, laminate wood flooring is an excellent option. Laminate flooring used to have a negative connotation, but in recent years has made quite a comeback due to the major upgrade laminate flooring makers have made. Here is how this type of flooring can add a fresh look to your home.

Benefits of Laminate Flooring

Made to Look Like Authentic Wood or Other Types of Flooring

As mentioned before, hardwood flooring never goes out of style, and for good reason. It works with pretty much any interior aesthetic. Whether your home is traditional or contemporary, hardwood flooring fits the space. However, they are extremely expensive and may not be ideal for homes with a lot of foot traffic, pets, or kids. With such a high cost, it would be a shame to see them wear away, which can only be avoided with a lot of cleaning and maintenance. 

For modern wood flooring ideas, look into laminate flooring styles. They are typically made to look like real hardwood flooring, stone, or other types of materials. And they’ve improved drastically in appearance over the last several decades. 

Especially in a buyers’ market, it’s essential to ensure a modern look to your space. One way to do that is to install hard surface flooring as opposed to carpeting since it’s more preferred by buyers. Laminate flooring offers the look of modern wood floors while still allowing you to spend your money on other parts of your home you need to fix up before you list it. 

Easy to Maintain and Clean

Though laminate flooring isn’t super moisture resistant, simply cleaning spills and messes as soon as possible keeps a lot of hazards at bay. And regular cleaning is easy too. As long as you sweep and mop weekly, laminate wood flooring stays looking fresh for years to come. With proper maintenance and cleaning, laminate floors can last anywhere between 15 and 20 years. Of course, the proper installation plays a big part in the lifespan of laminate floors, but working with a professional flooring contractor can help mitigate these issues. 

Allows for a Quick Upgrade

Whether you’re selling or just want a new look in your home before an event or season, laminate flooring offers super quick and easy installation. They’re also a great way to protect real hardwood flooring in homes with young kids and pets while they grow so you can reveal protected and maintained real hardwood floors later in life. 

Installation for laminate flooring can be as easy as fitting laminate planks together. These tend to add more value to your home since they look the most like real hardwood flooring. It’s recommended to add padding underfoot to add a little give to the laminate flooring, but otherwise, it’s pretty much ready to install as-is. Of course, contacting a flooring contractor is always the best way to go if you’re not willing to do it yourself!
