    Key Advantages of Laminate Floors

    1. Ease of Installation.

    When you compare laminate floors to hardwood or ceramic tile, this type of floor is a breeze to install. There are even laminate floors that have a “glueless” option. With this type of laminate floors, the sections are connected using a tongue-and-groove design that clicks together to form a surface that is fastened securely.

You can even install a laminate floor over existing linoleum or tile floors.

    1. Photographic Finish.

    Laminate floors are designed to be an imitation of real wood. The pattern that you see is actually a printed photo taken of real wood, this photo is then bonded to a clear surface using aluminum oxide finish. This finish gives your laminate floors that rugged resistance we talked about earlier in this post. Not only can you have a laminate floor that imitates a wood finish, you can also imitate stone, ceramic or other types of flooring. There are literally hundreds of choices to match at décor.
