Are you thinking about giving your home a bit of a makeover? Fancy something that looks ace but doesn’t cost a fortune? Well, laminate flooring might just be what you’re after.
At Frank’s, we’re all about helping you find the perfect fit for your home. So, let’s jump into the wonderful world of laminate and see why it might be the perfect choice for your home.
What’s the Deal with Laminate Flooring?
Laminate flooring is like the Swiss Army knife of flooring – versatile, durable, and easy on the eye. It’s made up of multiple layers, including a hard-wearing top layer that can take a good ol’ battering from daily life. Here’s what makes laminate a brill choice:
- Sleek as a New Pin: With laminate, you get that classy look of hardwood or stone without the hefty price tag. It’s like having your cake and eating it too.
- Tough as Nails: Got kids or pets? No problem. Laminate’s tough enough to handle all the spills and thrills of a busy home.
- Easy as Pie to Keep Clean: A quick sweep or mop, and Bob’s your uncle – it’s clean! Perfect for those of us who’d rather be doing… well, anything else!
Choosing Your Laminate Flooring: Tips for Beginners
- Style and Colour: Whether you fancy a traditional wood look or something more modern, there’s a laminate for you. Pop into Frank’s and have a gander at the variety.
- Thickness Matters: Generally, the thicker the laminate, the more it feels like real wood underfoot. Plus, it’s usually a bit more durable.
- AC Ratings: Laminate comes with an AC rating which tells you how hard-wearing it is. AC3 or AC4 is usually spot on for most homes.
Installation: A Doddle or a Pro Job?
Fancy yourself a bit of a DIYer? Laminate’s a nifty choice. Most types come with a click-lock design, so you can lay it down without any faff. But if DIY isn’t your cup of tea, don’t fret. At Frank’s, we know some top-notch pros who can sort it out for you.
Looking After Your Laminate Flooring
- Keep It Clean: Regular sweeping or vacuuming will keep it looking spick and span.
- Mind the Moisture: While laminate can handle a bit of damp, don’t let water sit on it for too long. A quick mop-up is all you need.
- Avoid Scratches: Felt pads under furniture legs are a good shout to keep your floor looking mint.
