Laminate: Still Making Waves in the Flooring World

Laminate: Still Making Waves in the Flooring World

One of the main reasons our customers in KZN love laminate flooring so much is because of its water-resistant qualities. Wet feet are par for the course when living at the coast, whether people are just coming in from one of KZN’s stunning beaches or taking a splash in the pool. This is why laminate flooring’s ability to withstand water makes it a popular choice with our KZN shoppers – and, due to the water resistance, laminate flooring is very easy to clean.

This is of course on the back of buying the laminate flooring from a reputable company and having it professionally installed. We always advise seeking expert guidance from the get-go when you are planning a flooring renovation and following through by using a professional to install the flooring.

Then there is the matter of humidity. Coastal areas like KZN also suffer extreme humidity, which again makes laminate flooring perfect for this type of area.

Just Leave It to the Professionals

Many people see laminate flooring as a DIY job, but we strongly advise against this. Picture this scenario…you have a gorgeous guesthouse in KZN and are excited about the holiday season. What better way to make your KZN accommodation stand out from the rest than with a floor makeover – which you decide to tackle on your own.

In the midst of installing the floor, you realise the job is a tad more complex than you imagined and you are quickly getting panicked about guests pitching up at your KZN guesthouse because you are nowhere near finished.

We have seen this play out in real life and have had to come to the rescue numerous times. Flooring projects, including laminate flooring, can be tricky and it will take a professional to properly plan for every aspect of the job to turn out perfectly.

The Benefits

Here are a few quick benefits of laminate flooring (and why our KZN customers also love it):

  • Regardless of whether you want to refresh one room with new flooring or your entire home, you will be surprised at how cost-effective laminate flooring is.
  • Laminate flooring is a master of disguise, so you get the look of genuine hardwood floors at a fraction of the cost!
  • Laminate flooring is suitable for any room in the home. All you really need is a structurally sound, dry, clean and flat subfloor.
