Laminate flooring mimics the look and texture of wood, ceramics or stone. It’s a tough, durable product that’s easy to clean, pet-proof and the installation process is a very simple one. There are just so many benefits of having laminate flooring as opposed to hardwood or vinyl options…
Compared to hardwood, the laminate materials themselves are far cheaper and installation costs are, on average, 50% less than hardwood installations. Since laminate flooring is made from pressed wood, it is more durable than hardwood and highly resistant to scratches, the eﬀects of moisture and general wear and tear from pets or foot traﬃc. Due to the coating on laminate flooring, it doesn’t fade from sunlight as quickly compared to hardwood and can therefore be used with peace of mind in rooms with large windows and natural light.
Compared to vinyl, laminate flooring does bring with it a warm feeling, especially when coupled with a high quality underlay. Vinyl on the other hand, is cold to the touch which is a very important factor for homeowners to consider. Laminate flooring manufacturers oﬀer options which are comprised of recycled materials whereas vinyl emits toxic chemicals when produced and does not decompose in landfills. Laminate flooring also yields a more aesthetically pleasing appearance as its deep, realistic, three-dimensional embossing will more closely mimic wood, ceramic or stone.

If laminate flooring is not to your taste, perhaps you’re thinking about tile flooring for your home instead?
One of the best aspects of floor tiles is that they require very little maintenance. They are highly resistant to staining, odours, dirt and can be cleaned with a damp mop, cloth or sponge. Tiles also come in a great variety of colour options and styles meaning they can match and compliment the exact aesthetic your aiming for.
Tiles are composed of natural clay and other plentiful raw materials meaning their production doesn’t require the exploitation of any other natural resources. They are also very durable & long- lasting, can be made of 100% recycled content and the raw materials required to make them can be sourced all over the world, cutting down on any carbon footprint. The eco credentials of tiles makes them a great choice for the environmentally conscious home improver.
