While you may not think of it, your flooring is one of the most significant parts of your home. It stretches from room to room, highlighting and beautifying your space.

Furniture and other functional items often adorn your flooring. But what if you turn to a durable, long-lasting and solid alternative to make your floors stand out? There are enormous ways that can increase the gaze of your floors. One of the trendiest ways of adorning floors in Auckland of today’s time is laminate flooring.

As per the popular saying “No one is perfect on its own”, everyone has some flaws, be it man, machine or anything that exists in this world. In the same way, there are some pros and cons of laminate flooring. As stated earlier, “No one is perfect”, thus, despite being beautiful and convenient Laminate Flooring too has cons. Here we’ll be discussing both the pros and cons of laminate flooring.

Pros Of Laminate Flooring:


  • Installation:

It is really an easy and fast process to install laminate flooring. Gone are the days when it required gluing pieces to each other. Now the flooring comes in the fold and lock design that allows planks to fit together like puzzle pieces. 

  • Cleaning:

Laminate floors could be cleaned easily with a dry mop or broom. In case you want to make the floors even more glossy and radiant then you can use laminate floor cleaner.

  • Durability And Maintenance

Unlike other flooring materials, that is prone to scratches and dents. Laminate flooring's strong surface resists stains and somehow if it acquires stains then it is really easy to remove. Parador laminate flooring is one of the kinds that do not easily get dents and scratches.

  • Functionality

It is more comfortable to stand upon laminate flooring with underlayment than the flooring without underlayment. The slightly springy ambiance offered by the laminate flooring makes it easier to stand upon it for long periods.

  • Appearance

Laminate Flooring appears to look better than flooring made up of wood, stone or other natural materials. Apart from this, the even sized laminate pieces make the installation process easy and convenient. The uniformly-sized pieces especially of LOC laminate flooring when placed together makes the floor appear even more beautiful.

  • Moisture

It is actually no issue if you want to adorn your kitchen or some other semi-moist place with laminate flooring. Laminate boards are tightly held to each other, therefore there’s no gap that lets water get inside it. Krono Laminate Flooring is the best quality flooring that is moisture-resistant. 

  • Resale Value

It’s true that laminate flooring wasn’t much attractive earlier, but the consistent efforts of the craftsmen made it look like solid hardwood and engineered wood flooring.

 

Cons Of Laminate Flooring:


  • Limited Design Options

One little downside with Laminate Flooring is that the flooring look is pre-set by the manufacturer. Thus, you have to adjust with features like colour. Colour and sheen cannot be modified, so your choices are narrow. You need to meet your Laminate Flooring supplier in Auckland to talk about such issues. He might help you with an accurate solution.

  • Can create Noise

Laminate flooring isn’t capable enough to absorb sound well. You can sense a little hollow sound when you walk on it, mainly when you are in high heels. When you use an acoustic underlay, you may well be able to reduce the noise. The sound is tolerable if you value for Laminate Flooring or is fond of it. You can take advice from a local Laminate Flooring contractor in Auckland as to how to tackle the problem.

  • Warping

The materials employed in laminate flooring are resistant to moisture. Though, sometimes you have to deal with some flooring that can warp in high-moisture areas. Thus, it isn’t clear whether the flooring should be installed in kitchens and bathrooms or in any other rooms that are continuously exposed to heavy water or steam.

  • It’s not Hardwood

Laminate floors increase the value of your house in comparison to wall-to-wall carpeting. However, hardwood floors are way better as they value even more. Generally, Buyers can easily identify the difference between materials like laminate and hardwood or stone. Most likely, they prefer to go with natural materials.
