Here’s just a few facts about laminate flooring:
Laminate floors are generally more affordable than hardwood, but some high end laminates may be comparable in price to low-end hardwood.
Laminate is incredibly durable resisting scratches, impacts and staining so it does well in an active household with kids and pets. It also resists fading and is easy to clean. Many laminate flooring styles also include a light commercial warranty which tells you just how durable it is.
Laminate floors are comparable to hardwood floors in that they are much warmer than tile. If you are concerned about sound, you can simply choose a different underlayment pad to greatly reduce sound transfer.
Laminate floors are very easy to maintain and care for. The melamine impregnated surface with aluminum oxide makes it resistant to dirt and dust. Ordinarily vacuuming or sweeping is usually sufficient to keep the floor clean. If needed, occasionally clean with a damp cloth, microfiber or terry cloth head using a light mist of laminate floor cleaner.
