Laminate Flooring Guide

Whitt Carpet One Floor & Home in Salem, Virginia, offers a great selection of laminate flooring. Advancements in technology have made laminate manufacturing and digital printing far more sophisticated. These advancements have allowed laminate to replicate the authentic look and feel of hardwood.

Laminate vs. Hardwood

Like hardwood, laminate comes in planks that mimic the look of wood. Laminate features a layered construction and is backed by strong support layers, making them durable enough to handle regular foot traffic. Laminate flooring also features a durable top layer that resists most scratches and scuffs. Laminate does not require refinishing and is easy to maintain.

Where Can Laminate Be Installed?

Laminate floors are a top choice for any room that you want an upscale look without the cost. It’s ideal for everywhere from kitchens and mudrooms to hallways, living rooms, dining rooms, and more. Laminate floors have also become popular in basements because they’re moisture-resistant and easy to repair and replace. Laminate is known for its easy installation. In fact, it’s usually available as a simple click-lock floating floor, which means no adhesives are needed during the installation process, and you can walk on your new floor the same day as installation.
