What is a laminate floor?

A laminate floor is a type of floor covering that consists of different layers. The top layer is made of melamine resin, a material that is very strong and durable. This makes the floor resistant to scratches and wear. The melamine resin layer is available in different colors and patterns, so that the laminate floor can look like wood, stone or tiles. A laminate floor is relatively easy to install, because the floor comes in planks that click together. This means that no glue is required to install the floor.

Advantages of laminate:

  1. Sustainability: Laminate floors are durable and long lasting. They are resistant to wear and scratches and are ideal for households with children and pets. In addition, they are resistant to discolouration due to sunlight and moisture resistant.
  2. Cost-effectiveness: Laminate floors are generally cheaper than other types of floors, such as hardwood floors. Plus, they are easy to install, saving you money on labor costs if you choose to install the flooring yourself.
  3. Easy to maintain: Laminate floors are easy to maintain and clean. All you need is a vacuum cleaner and a damp cloth. Unlike hardwood floors, you don't have to worry about using special cleaners to sand and varnish the floor.

Disadvantages of laminate:

  1. No real wooden look: Although most laminate floors are designed to look like a wooden floor outwardly, the appearance of laminate is less natural than that of a real hardwood floor. Some people may not find the look of laminate flooring as appealing as that of hardwood flooring.
  2. Limited repair options: If a laminate floor becomes damaged, it is usually not possible to repair just the damaged area. Often a large part of the floor needs to be replaced, so the repair costs can be higher than with other types of floors.
  3. Adding less value to your home: Compared to hardwood floors, laminate floors add less value to a home. This can be a disadvantage if you plan to sell your home or want to add value to your home. Potential buyers may prefer a hardwood floor over a laminate floor.
