Why Laminate Wood Floors Should Be Your First Choice

A beautiful home has an effect on people. It makes them relax and offers contentment. Most of us experience a special aura when we step into a beautiful home; we are glad to be there. Beautiful homes run the architectural gamut, too. They can be cape or colonial, cabin or cottage, but something almost all of them have in common is Laminate Wood Flooring. This type of flooring is a beauty to behold, and a way to make a pretty house simply stunning.

Laminate wood floors have reached a new popularity in the United States due to several factors. Many people are first drawn to them because of their beauty. Laminate wood is also extremely durable, so they are an excellent investment in a high traffic home. While carpeting can be expected to last five to seven years, laminate wood flooring can last up to 30 years. And finally, this type of flooring is so affordable that it is in most homeowner’s budgets.

Laminate wood flooring was first invented in 1977 by the Swiss company Perstop. Previous to flooring, the company manufactured laminate for countertops and other surfaces. They began marketing their laminate flooring in the United States in 1994 under the brand name Pergo. Pergo is synonymous with flooring, but they are not the only manufacturer; homeowners now have an extensive choice of companies to choose from.

Laminate wood floors are floating floors, which means they can be put in almost any room in the home. Because they are easy to clean and care for, they are often installed in playrooms or family rooms. They are also very popular in dining rooms and living rooms, as they give these rooms the traditional and sophisticated look of oak wood floors.

Laminate wood is the floor of choice when a homeowner is looking to update a guest bedroom or the master bedroom. When paired with oak furniture and off white walls, the look is classically beautiful and never gets old. And in these hectic days filled with uncertainty, many people are looking to get back to basics as a way of centering themselves. One way of doing this is by reconnecting with family and making the home a beautiful place to return to every night. And one of the easiest ways to make a space beautiful is by installing laminate wood floors.

Laminate Wood Flooring

Laminate flooring nearly took over the flooring scene in the nineties and rapidly became the alternative consumers were searching for. Laminate floors allowed consumers the option of having a wood floor without the maintenance usually associated with hardwood flooring (but even that's now changed, as wood floors are easier to maintain than ever). And because laminate wood floors are "floating floors" (not attached to the sub-floor), laminate flooring could also be installed in some places hardwood couldn't. Today, Laminate Wood floors are also known as "click laminate floors" and are installed by simply snapping two planks together, requiring no glue whatsoever. In fact, laminate was the first to offer a click locking system.
