Why you should Choose Laminate
Choosing a new floor can be tough, but by keeping certain things in mind the process can turn from scary to fun! Which room is the floor for? What will the room be used for? How will the look of the floor fit in to the look of the room? All of these are great questions we can help you answer at Harry Katz Carpet One. If you’re thinking you want a floor that is very durable for a room without too much moisture that has the look of hardwood while still coming in at a friendly price point, laminate may be the floor for you!
Laminate Flooring vs. Hardwood
Although laminate is an engineered, or manmade, flooring product, it shares many qualities with natural hardwood. Laminate is made up of layers, and the core layer is made from recycled wood. This not only gives laminate similar properties to hardwood flooring, it also makes laminate the eco-friendly alternative. The recycled wood fibers used to make the best laminate flooring would otherwise be disposed of.
Can you put Laminate Flooring in a Bathroom?
While laminate’s middle layer is wood, the top is actually made from a high definition photograph. This photograph can be of anything you want your floor to look like, most popularly wood or stone or tile. Since the picture is high quality and high definition, laminate will look like wood! That layer is then covered with a protective seal that is scratch resistant and durable to ensure a long-lasting floor.
