Everyone dreams of one day owning their own home. Most people will buy a used home with the intent of remodeling it. Starting with new vinyl tile flooring can be a great way to begin your remodeling project and set the mood for each room. This can inspire you to design the rest of your new starter home.

Buying the perfect new home is a great first step when you’re investing in your future. But unless the previous owner was your brother or best friend it is very likely that it will not be very ‘you.’ Even with your furniture, possessions and a quick paint job your new home can still feel like it belongs to someone else. While there are innumerable ways to go about customizing your home, your floors are in every room and set the tone from the bottom.

All too often older homes have flooring that is from a bygone era. A 1970’s style techni-color scheme may have been appealing back in the days of Andy Warhol, but nowadays it will not fit in at all with modern furniture or appliances. This clash can make your home look tacky and uninviting.

The great thing about laminate flooring isn’t how long it lasts or how easy it is to install or any of that boring stuff, it’s about how great it looks and how many options there are! You can get every type of stone look from regular tiles to randomly arranged cobble, to every type of hardwood grain from dark to light, even metallic and leather looks can be found. You get all of that with the benefit of it being easier to clean than the material it is imitating and a breeze to install.

Installing wooden laminate flooring can be a cost effective, long lasting and attractive way to finish your new floor. They are well suited for high foot traffic areas, are resistant to scratching by children and pets, and are very stain resistant. Maintenance is very easy and direct sunlight will not fade it.

The key benefit of this flooring type is the easy installation, the adaptability of the subfloor, and the beautiful photographic finishing that shows through the tough and durable outer layer of protection. Read on to take a deeper look at each advantage:

Installation of Wooden Laminate Flooring

A snap together glue free option is available with most styles. Even someone with the most limited experience in carpentry can install one. So not only is it good for the do-it-yourselfer, but it is also great for contractors to offer as a low labour cost alternative to homeowners.

 

Sub-floor – Wooden Laminate Flooring

A wood laminate floor is well known for their ability to adapt to different subfloors. If your subfloor has a slightly high moisture content, like concrete typically will, you can find a wooden laminate flooring that works perfectly. They can be installed right on top of nearly any subfloor, from concrete to a pre existing wood floor, to vinyl or ceramic. All you need is for it to be clean and level, like you would need for any other floor.

 

Finish – Wooden Laminate Flooring

The wooden appearance of these floors comes from a photograph that imitates real wood. The photograph is bonded to the laminate with a strong and durable aluminum oxide finish. This top layer is what gives the floor the resistant and long lasting durability it is known for.
