Hardwood flooring needs continuous maintenance. You need to keep it clean, keep things that can scratch it off of it, and you will need to protect it with coatings when needed. Prices can range from well under $10 dollars per square yard to well over $40 dollars, not including installation. Vinyl laminate flooring can be a mistake, if it is not done correctly. Price is not always a good determining factor when trying to buy a quality product. You have to consider your time in shopping for your floor, clearing the room, removing your old floor covering, installing the floor and replacing all the furniture in the room. But, what exactly are laminates as used in laminate flooring? Originally developed in Europe, laminates are made of a high-density fiberboard core covered with a visible, outer layer that simulates wood, stone or tile. Some laminates are available in plain colors, too.
The lamination being installed should be of multiple layers. It is because of these multiple layers that the laminate in question is able to last long. The top most layer should have the capability of resisting any scratches that may come to be as a result of chair dragging or any other object that may scratch the floor. The top layer should also be made of a material which is easy to clean. Nobody wants a floor surface that is hard to clean and it is for this reason that one should consider choosing a laminate flooring whose top surface is easy to clean and resistant to stains. For a laminate flooring to be considered of top quality, the layer should have some images on it which bring out the clear color of the laminate. This feature should also be of high definition to ensure that it continues the aspect of decorating the room in question. The images should be of a pattern that relates with the surrounding wall. The color of the images on the laminate flooring should also be a color that perfectly matches the dominant color of the room, wall.
