What are Luxury Laminates?

Luxury LaminatesDeciding to remodel a home can be challenging. The process itself can be stressful. There are many choices to make about what color to paint the walls, what furniture to buy, and what appliances will look best in the kitchen. One of the biggest decisions is what kind of flooring to use. Tile and hardwood flooring in Carrollton have always been popular options, but luxury laminates have recently become an appealing alternative.

Luxury laminates are not like the old vinyl floors that were popular in the past. While some are made of vinyl, they now offer the more realistic look of wood and stone. This look is achieved by using high resolution images underneath a “wear” layer, which makes the product extremely durable. This gives the look of luxury, hence the name, without the high price tag. It allows homeowners to floor larger rooms or even their whole house for less than the cost of installing real wood or stone.

Carrollton luxury laminates come in a variety of colors, designs and sizes. Wood laminates look like real wood because they use real wood. They are typically made with wood and a realistic photo veneer layer. They are made water resistant so that they can be used in the kitchen or bathroom where you normally couldn’t put wood flooring. Stone laminates use the same technology and make it more affordable to have a stone entryway or bathroom.

Switching to luxury laminates is easy and instillation can be done by either a professional or the homeowner. Many companies offer laminates that click and lock together. They can be anchored to the floor or allowed to be a floating floor that sits over the existing floor. This makes it possible to easily replace pieces if they ever become damaged or if you want to change the room’s entire look.
