For home owners who don’t have a great idea which flooring to choose for their renovation or build project, Laminate floor is a good place to start looking. Laminate floors, no matter which brand they’re from, share a lot of common benefits. Below are some of the top benefits for which people favour them over other flooring options:
Great on budget
For home owners who want to get their makeover or renovation project done within a preset budget range, Laminate floor is a reasonable choice. A lot of the laminate floor products provide a very similar look and feel to the timber floors these days, with a much lower price tag of course, comparing to timber floors. Some of the laminate floors such as the Quick-Step Impressive Ultra and Majestic laminate floors provide an even better overall feel than timber floors according to some of the customers’ comments.
Water and wear resistance
One other big reason for a lot of people choosing laminate floors is its ability to be resistant to water, wear and tear and scratches. In the other days, people used to worry that laminate floors are going to bend and stretch with exposure to water and moist. That is no longer the case. In the recent years, quick-step laminate ranges such as Quick-Step Impressive Ultra and Quick-Step Eligna are both water resistant.
And for households with little ones, people don’t want their timber floors to be tested against the child activities. Then the laminate floor is a good choice, because many of them are scratch resistant.
Quick and easy Installation
A lot of laminate floors can be installed for a decent size living area under half a day.
For example. The uniclic click system from Quick-Step flooring make it pretty easy to install their laminate floors. A lot of people even choose to install their floors by themselves.
Many laminate floors don’t need to be installed on underlay, unlike timber floors. They can be installed on top of existing concrete, floor tiles with very little amount of pre-preparation. So that saves a lot of cost and time.
Design and style
Design and style of the floor is almost the most important thing when it comes to choosing floorings. Nowadays, laminate floors are made by super realistic printing technology, hence a lot of the timber floor styles are almost 100% copied, so customers can’t actually tell a notable difference timber floor and laminate floor.
There are so many different choices and options when it comes to laminate floors’ design and styles. For example, quick-step eligna floors generally give you the warm and bright feel that can almost go with any room and style. Quick-step majestic floors are known for their extra long and wide planks, which is arguably the best choice in the market to go with a spacious area. It can immediately give your room the great and grand feeling.Quick-step impressive ultra on the other hand is not so bald as the majestic range. But the medium sized impressive ultra floors are widely loved by households all sizes.
Easy cleaning & maintenance
Modern working households wouldn’t want to spend half a day cleaning and mopping their floors. Laminate floor is pretty low maintenance in this department. Every now and then, they just need to be vacuumed or swept then mopped with a damp mop with a small cup of the quick-step cleaning product. Hence it saves households quite some time to maintain the floors.
Flexible and floating
Laminate floors to certain extent can expand or contract when it meets temperature change or other external pressure, thus it’s called a floating floor. If the laminate floors don’t bend or crack, they can maintain their original style and conditions for quite a few years.
