Are you in the market for a flooring solution that boasts all the beauty of hardwood at a fraction of the cost? Floor Coverings International Klamath Falls serves the greater Klamath Falls, Lakeview, and Medford, Oregon areas, and we want to help you realize the numerous benefits of laminate hardwood flooring!
Laminate hardwood flooring blends the beauty of hardwood with the lasting value and easy maintenance of laminate. It is made from particle board topped with an imitation of wood grain to expertly mimic the look of solid hardwood flooring. A difference between solid hardwood and laminate is the installation process. Laminate pieces snap or glue together for easy installation. Laminate can even be installed on top of concrete or old floors.
Laminate hardwood flooring is also environmentally friendly:
- It’s made out of paper, so it does not involve the harvesting of old-growth trees.
- It’s a good choice for people with allergies because unlike carpet, laminate doesn’t trap dirt and dust.
- If you ever decide to remodel, it is a recyclable material.
To clean your laminate hardwood flooring, just sweep often to remove debris and wipe up any spills with a damp cloth. No refinishing or resurfacing is necessary.
While there are many advantages to laminate hardwood flooring, there are a few downsides. Laminate does lack some of the durability of solid hardwood flooring, and for some, it isn’t as aesthetically pleasing. Your Floor Coverings International design associate will be there to work through the trade-offs of all the different kinds of flooring you could choose for your rooms and help you decide what makes sense for each of your spaces.
