Laminate Flooring: Suitable for the whole family

Picking the right flooring for your home that suits not just you but your whole family can be a nightmare. If you have children you are going to want flooring that is child friendly. Our current home consists mainly of laminate  flooring with only the bedrooms being carpet. We have found for us that laminate definitely is the perfect flooring for us.

Before I get into why we've found that to be the case what is laminate? 
Laminate flooring is made up of multiple synthetic layers that are all fused together by lamination, hence the name. Laminate often simulates the look of wood, but there are wide ranges of designs available other than the traditional wooden vibe.

Laminate flooring works best for us because we often wonder how Blake can cause so much mess and destruction. If you have carpets and children you will most likely understand why we prefer laminate flooring. Laminate flooring is so much easier to clean up the mess children make from food, crafting, spills and other mess they make. If your kid is a budding artist or loves playing with the dreaded playdough or slime you won't be worrying how to get the stuff out of the carpet. 

 Laminate is incredibly durable and scratch resistant and easy to clean. With laminate flooring you are able to see dust and pet hairs more easily to Hoover up preventing allergies such as asthma. Carpet on the other hand embeds particles in the fibres of the material. Laminate won't be affected by cleaning chemicals either which is also another great reason to opt for it. 

Not only is it great as it's family friendly but as you can get different designs there are many options to find something you love. For us we love the traditional wooden laminate that our current rental property has as the light colour goes well with the rooms and our furniture.  In the future when we buy our own home we definitely would be opting to replace flooring with laminate if needed. 

Laminate is also a great option if you are wanting to replace flooring in your home and you're on a limited budget and not wanting to break the bank. Laminate is definitely a more affordable option which also offers great quality and is easy to lay yourself.  If in the unlikelyhood that there is damage you have the reassurance of only needing to replace a single plank without ripping your whole floor up.
