For many homeowners in the Burnsville, Apple Valley, Eagan, & St. Paul areas, durability and low maintenance are two of the top priorities when choosing kitchen flooring. At Floor Coverings International Dakota County, we offer many different styles and materials for kitchen floors. One material that has been and continues to be a popular choice is laminate flooring. Laminate can be a great flooring option for many areas of the home, but here we’ll look at why it works especially well in the kitchen.
Durability & Easy Maintenance
The kitchen experiences a lot of traffic and is put to the test daily. Perhaps more than in any other area of the home, the floors you choose for this room will be subjected to harsh conditions. From food and water spills to mysterious sticky residue, your kitchen floors need to be able to withstand this kind of frequent activity. Laminate floors are constructed to be durable. Between the engineered backing and the top wear layer made to resist scratches and impact, modern laminate flooring is stronger than ever and capable of resisting wear and tear. In addition to its durability, laminate’s top wear layer, generally made from resin or aluminum oxide, results in an easy-to-clean surface. Most spills and messes can be cleaned with simple warm water and a cloth.
Another reason why Apple Valley homeowners love laminate flooring for their kitchens is because of the many design options there are to choose from. Since modern laminate can be made to mimic real hardwood or natural stone tile, achieving the look you want is easy. Kitchens should be able to serve their function and stand up to daily wear and tear, but they should also be a space where you enjoy spending time. Laminate floors can contribute to a beautiful kitchen that matches your personal style. The patterns applied to the floor’s visual layer can even be digitally recreated to look like wood species that are unavailable in solid hardwood flooring varieties. When you opt for laminate, you can have floors with realistic wood grains at a competitive price.
