Besides being the backbone of your home, it's easy to forget that flooring does serve a purpose other than aesthetics. Sure, you want your flooring to look amazing, but it can also be other things for your home as well. Laminate flooring has come a long way in recent years and is quickly becoming one of the most popular flooring choices among homeowners. If you've decided on laminate flooring, you probably have a few goals in mind. Let's take a look at some common goals homeowners have for their laminate floors.
If you own a home near the water, or just want to make it feel like you do, laminate flooring can help you achieve that goal. Laminate comes in a variety of colours, and the lightest shades can help tie together that beachy-feeling that you are looking for. Once you install your whitewashed laminate, you can bring in ocean elements like driftwood, woven furniture, and neutral coloured décor.
If you are installing new floors in an area that gets a lot of foot traffic from the outdoors, laminate flooring can be a lifesaver. A particular kind of laminate, appropriately called waterproof laminate, is made entirely of plastic making it completely waterproof. This would be a great choice for bathrooms, mudrooms, entryways, or the kitchen – the possibilities are endless.
Laminate flooring can completely change the look of small spaces by choosing specific patterns and colours that can give the illusion of a larger space. Go for wide plank laminate or light colours like white, cream or pastels to make a room appear brighter and larger.
Laminate flooring is extremely low maintenance. Daily cleaning can be done by sweeping or vacuuming, and stickier messes only require a damp mop. No expensive equipment or cleaning supplies are necessary, making them inexpensive to maintain as well.
Laminate can help you achieve all of these goals and more! Come out to the Flooring Superstores in Calgary to browse our wide selection of laminate flooring in a variety of different styles and colours.
