If you are considering adding some laminate flooring to your home, then you should probably know a bit more about it. Here, we are going to tell you about laminate flooring, discuss how it is made and why it is so popular. Keep reading to find out more about this popular kind of flooring.

What Is Laminate Flooring?

Laminate flooring has been around since the 1970s and it is a cheaper alternative to regular hardwood flooring. This kind of flooring has many layers that are fused together to create a solid flooring that looks great in your home.

Laminate flooring often has a very attractive appearance as the wooden panels slot nicely together. It comes in a variety of styles and colours and many retailers have a lot of these on offer for you to choose from. You can gain a better understanding of how great laminate flooring can look if you take a look at this link:     

Why Is It Popular?

There are many reasons why laminate flooring is one of the most popular flooring options including the fact that it is much cheaper than other flooring methods. There is no need to spend a lot of cash on a wooden floor when you can get a laminate floor that looks very similar.

Many people also choose laminate flooring because of its availability. There are many retailers selling this kind of floor and it makes it much easier to find in a short period of time. This kind of flooring has been popular for many years since its invention and as time goes on and it improves, it is expected to remain popular with the general public.

How Is It Made?

The process of making laminate flooring is quite complicated but you don't need to worry about that because it is taken care of by the manufacturer. Of course, if you are interested, we are going to talk you through the basic steps.

First, there is a layer that is made to resist moisture, and this is often known as the backing layer. This is then added to another inner core layer which is made of resin and fibreboard materials. Once that has been fused together, you can expect the 3D photographic image layer to be added to the top of the flooring. All of these layers are then laminated together, and this is where the name for laminate flooring comes from.

The photographic layer is the interesting one as this is the design that you will choose. This can appear as tiles, metal, wood and even stone and many people are impressed with how this looks. While the process is complicated, there are many factories that can do this in a matter of time.

The Benefits

There are many reasons why people choose laminate flooring for their home and we are going to tell you some of these below.

It Is Cheaper

One of the most obvious benefits of laminate flooring is that it tends to be much cheaper. You can get the look of a hardwood floor without having to spend the cash on the real thing. This is great for those who are planning on redecorating their home on a low budget and still want it to look great.

It Is Easy To Install

Another benefit of having laminate flooring in your home is that it is really easy to install. This kind of flooring can not only be installed over other flooring except for carpet, but it can also be done in a fraction of the time. These planks of wood come with tongue and groove which means that they can be easily slotted together.

It Is Easy To Maintain

No one wants to have to constantly clean and varnish their floor in their home and with laminate flooring, this doesn't need to happen. These floors are very resistant to water and stains and this means that they can be easily cleaned. As long as they are brushed and mopped regularly, they can stay in pretty good condition for longer.
It Can Last a Long Time

Another great thing about laminate flooring is that it can last a long time. This kind of flooring is very durable, and it is perfect for those who have pets or young children who are likely to cause a mess. They work great in rooms that have moisture and they are often the first choice for those who want a floor that will stay intact for a long time.

It Comes In Different Styles

Finally, you will find that laminate flooring can come in a variety of different styles which means that you can find the right flooring for your home. You can choose your wood grains and your colourings to make your floor the right design. This is great and it is not always possible with other kinds of flooring.


Now that you know a bit more about laminate flooring, you can make an informed decision on whether it is right for you or not. This kind of flooring is very popular, and it comes with many benefits which you will see over the years once you get it installed.

Make sure to always choose your flooring from a trusted retailer and make sure that it has been installed properly.

Choose laminate flooring today for your home and you won't be disappointed with what you find.
