Hardwood appearance for longer
Laminate flooring is available in planks that give your home a very stylish look without the high cost of hardwood which can expand, shrink, crack, discolor, and even grow mold. Laminate is resistant to wear and tear, plus it is easy to install and care for.
The first thing you should do before buying your laminate flooring is to choose a color. You can generally find them in white, gray, beige, natural, reddish and dark colors.
To choose the most suitable laminate for you, consider these three points:
1. Choose thick laminates.
Look for the thicker boards, they will give a more realistic and sophisticated impression to your wooden floor.
2. What are the objectives of the area where you are installing the laminate?
Ask yourself, What is my goal for this area? For example, if you are looking to make a small room appear bigger, then you should choose wider and light colored boards, this will help the room to look larger and brighter.
3. Think of the surrounding rooms
Consider the type and color of the flooring in the spaces next to which you will be installing the laminate flooring. Be sure to create interiors that accent or blend well with adjoining rooms. Better yet, install laminate flooring everywhere!
