Hardwood flooring is beautiful and timeless but it isn’t the best flooring solution in ‘wet’ rooms such as bathrooms, mud rooms, laundry rooms and rooms adjacent to an outdoor pool. So, what do discriminating Victoria Park, FL homeowners do in these circumstances?

They install high-quality, modern, waterproof laminate floors. Yes, we said, high-quality, modern, waterproof laminate floors. If you haven’t seen today’s modern laminate floors, you’re missing out on one of the overall best values in flooring, not to mention feature rich.
 

Why Are Modern Laminate Floors So Good?

 
Today’s modern laminate flooring has all the features Victoria Park, FL homeowners are looking for. Let’s start with the visuals. Laminate floors look amazing. Modern printing techniques have allowed high-quality laminate vendors like Mohawk RevWood, Quick-Step and Pergo, to offer a wood-look product that’s nearly indistinguishable from real hardwood. Many of the newer laminate floors look so real, you won’t know it’s not a hardwood floor without bending down to touch it. You’ll also find desirable hardwood floor type features in quality laminate floors like wide and long planks and textured finishes.

When you compare laminate floors to other hard surface floor coverings such as luxury vinyl or hardwood, you’ll find laminate floors have lots of features and a more budget-friendly cost. Take scratch resistance as an example. Hardwood or vinyl floors can’t hold a candle to laminate wood floors when it comes to scratching. This is especially important for those Victoria Park, FL homes with children, pets or high-traffic areas. In fact, laminate floors are as much as 6 times more scratch-resistant than luxury vinyl floors.

When we say laminate floors are durable, we mean a lot more than scratch-resistance. High end laminate floors are dent resistant, fade resistant and stain resistant. Laminate floors also carry a durability rating called an AC rating. Laminate floors with an AC rating of AC4 and AC5 are the recommended choice.

Laminate floors are also waterproof or water-resistant so they are an ideal floor covering for areas that get wet and where you’d never install hardwood.
