With the holidays over, the last thing you want to do is think about forking out a large sum of money for a flooring renovation. With laminate flooring, you don’t have to worry. Laminate flooring is cost-effective and easy to install. Invision Hardwood & Décor has compiled a basic laminate flooring buyers guide to help you make an important and informed decision.

Generally, laminate flooring consists of four layers, the tread layer which consists of the glossy finish, the decorative layer which is the tiles pattern, the fiberboard core, and the bottom layer which provides stability and combats moisture.

Laminate flooring is a reliable choice for nearly any room. It is affordable, stylish, easy to install, and easy to find. It is a lot cheaper than traditional hardwood flooring and there are many looks that strive to mimic the look of hardwood. It really is the best of both worlds if you are looking to complete your renovation on a strict budget.

Compared to hardwood flooring, the installation process for laminate flooring is beginner friendly and easy to learn. To install laminate flooring, you size the pieces and snap them into place. It doesn’t take long to install a full room and it isn’t overly labor intensive.

Maintaining this type of floor is easy and hassle free. You can use general cleaning techniques such as mopping and basic floor soaps in order to ensure longevity.
