Benefits and Drawbacks of Wood Laminate Flooring vs Hardwood Flooring Living And Dining Area With Wood Furnishing And Beige Sofa With Light Colored Wood Laminate Flooring

Published by , Sep 28, 2016

If you a nature loving homeowner who wants to bring as many elements of nature as possible into your home but doesn't want to deal with high maintenance cost, you probably have to consider using wood laminate flooring instead of hardwood. Not only are the materials themselves cheaper, but laminate wood installation cost is, on average, 50 percent less than hardwood installation.

As you may know, wood laminate flooring isn’t made from solid wood. It’s a compressed fibreboard wood, covered by a photographic image of wood (or stone or tile), with a protective overlay. There are many benefits of choosing wood laminate flooring for the house, as it’s cheap and hardwearing, as well as simple and easy to install. There are also an endless variety of imitations of natural materials available in the market. Simply put, wood laminate flooring is versatile, easy to maintain, and reasonably priced. That’s why some people consider this a “super material.”

However, all the benefits of the wood laminate flooring also come with some drawbacks. Talking about durability, laminate flooring is more durable and resists scratches, moisture and wear and tear as it made from pressed wood. Laminate flooring is also easy to clean. Although the laminate flooring is more durable, it’s not that visually appealing. Laminate flooring with low quality will look artificial. On the contrary. Hardwood scratches easily but looks gorgeous and real.

Another drawback from wood laminate flooring, it can’t be refinished. It has a single wear layer and when damaged, the individual piece needs to be replaced. Over time, the laminate flooring will start to degrade and looks dull. When this happen, you need to replace the entire floor. On the contrary, hardwood can be repaired easily by sanding the rough and imperfections. Hardwood will also last for years.

If your home drenched with a lot of sunlight every day, hardwood can fade because it is a natural product, while laminate wood flooring has UV protection integrated into the surface.

The life span of a wood laminate floor depends on the quality of materials and layers’ thickness. Fortunately, most of the laminate floors come with a warranty (although you need to double-check the terms and conditions before you buy).
