Think again if you think your budget concerns will keep you from high design!

These days, wood look laminate is the hottest trend, and with today’s technology, you’ll get such a realistic look that many, including the experts, won’t be able to tell the difference.

It comes in many versions, including one that mimics reclaimed wood; people tend to love this wood, because every plank is unique. Here’s an interesting story; originally, it was thought that it would appeal specifically to the environmentally-conscious; it’s wood that’s taken from shuttered factories and offices and “recycled.” Today, however, people are drawn to that special, every-plank-is-different look, so that’s made it become very much a design statement. It comes in the same exotic species as authentic wood, and with textures, such as distressed and hand-scraped. Now, this is one of the laminate flooring trends that began in 2017, but there are a lot of others, such as gray floors which are predicted to be around for a very long time.

It’s certainly a laminate flooring installation that can brighten your Katy, TX home, isn’t it?

So now that you know you can have a highly designed floor with laminate, what are some other facts about the laminate flooring installation?

● It is fiberboard, topped with a photographic image, and then covered with a clear plastic wear layer. That wear layer makes it especially good for a house with pets, because it can stand up to dog claws!
● It’s durable, and will last about 10 years with proper care. Some things that can lessen the lifespan are excess water; while it is water resistant, it can't withstand being submerged for any time. It is, however, stain-resistant, which makes it superior for kids’ rooms.
● Budget-friendly. This type of flooring is great for the budget. One CAVEAT: Beware of bargain-basement prices, because it will most definitely mean a lesser quality. The floor will be thin and the photographic image inferior.
● Easy do-it-yourself installation. Most snap together, so special tools aren’t required.
● Impact resistant. It can stand up to dropped pots and pans. Be mindful, however, that if something falls at just the right angle, even if it’s not really heavy, it can wreak havoc.
