Finding the perfect dining room flooring

Choosing the dining room flooring? That room is very important, because it is a place where guests come together, looking at their best and expecting you to pull out all the stops. Besides a lip-smacking meal, a well-laid table with matching chairs, a damask table cloth – there’s one more thing that makes or breaks the perfect dinner party: your dining room flooring.

Laminate floors for any room in Your home

Choosing a new floor isn’t easy. The supply is virtually infinite these days, and every type of flooring has its own pros and cons. Increasingly, people are choosing laminate floors, which combine the authentic look of a natural floor with many practical advantages and a great price.

Laminate floors are made up of four layers. The base of the floor is an extremely strong, stable and moisture-proof HDF panel. The backing plate below it guarantees that the core cannot warp or collapse. On top of the HDF (high density fiberboard) panel comes the ‘decor panel’: a very high resolution photo of authentic wood planks or tiles, that is simulated to the smallest detail. The decor layer is finished with resin, and topping that is a final transparent, wear-resistant upper layer to provide the ultimate protection for the floor. Thanks to this unique construction,  laminate floors cannot be distinguished from a floor that is made from real wood or natural stone, but it does offer quite a few practical advantages.

It is very versatile: install it in living and dining rooms, kitchens, hallways, foyers, bedrooms, basements, stairs, offices, retail spaces and many other locations…

The most common reason why people choose laminate floors is the price, because it is typically half the cost of traditional hardwood floors. Sometimes the savings are even greater, depending on the type of flooring in question. And with recent innovations in technology, laminates look more and more like real wood. Laminate is easier to install than solid hardwood and many people can install it themselves without any previous carpentry experience whereas solid hardwood requires a specific level of expertise. With a laminate you won’t need nails and/or glue, as is the case with newer laminate locking systems. Therefore installation happens fast, in way less time than solid hardwoods can be installed and your finished floor will be scratch- and fade-resistant, two areas where solid hardwood is known to be more vulnerable.

Besides, laminate floors are beautiful, low maintenance and long-lasting. There are several simple steps that you can take to keep your floor clean and to ensure that you get many years of service from it. Simply dust mop or vacuum with a soft brush or wood floor accessory to keep your laminate floor clean from dust and dirt.

Laminate floors mistakes and how to avoid them

Laminate floors can add a lot of beauty and value to your home, if you know how to take care of them. Find out the most common mistakes made with laminate floors and how to fix them (or even better, how to avoid them):

1. TOO MUCH WATER – It is true that for cleaning a dirty floors you need water, but the problem with a laminate floors is that too much water goes into the cracks between the planks and can cause swelling and damage that is irreversible.  A little water goes a long way on a laminate floors. Sticky or dirty sections can be spot cleaned using a rag and spray bottle without having to mop the entire floor.

2. WRONG CLEANERS – Many cleaners can dull the look of your laminate floors, especially if they are used too often. If you have a laminate floor cleaner that you love, be sure to follow the usage instructions.  It’s tempting to think that more soap equals more clean, but that simply isn’t true. Often all that a laminate floors need to make it clean is a good dusting, or a light mopping with water only.

3. VACUUMING AND SWEEPING – Laminate floors need to be vacuumed or swept very often in order for them to be clean, because a dirt is an enemy to laminate, since it scratches and dulls the finish of the floor. However, sweeping or vacuuming improperly can actually do more damage to your laminate than the dirt.  If you use a vacuum cleaner, be sure to turn the brush roll off to avoid scratching the surface of your floor.

4. FURNITURE DAMAGE – A beautiful furniture can compliment a beautiful floor, but to protect that laminate floor, you need to be aware of a few things. Furniture pads on the bottoms of heavy furniture will protect the floor from scuffing and gouging.

5. STREAKS – There´s nothing worse than a streaky floors, especially after the cleaning. To remedy this, try a different cleaner or less cleaner. Cleaning part can be enough with a water and a bit of glass cleaner, but you can also buff the floors dry with an absorbent towel after you are done mopping.

6. PLANTS  – Be aware if you have potted plants on your laminate floors, because overfilling them, or leaks in your planters can cause damage that may be hidden temporarily. Protect the floors by paying attention to the watering, and using a pad to protect the floor under the pots. To be extra careful, move the plants up onto a higher surface.

7. PETS – Pet food and water dishes can also present issues for laminate floors.  Try using a pad under your pet dishes that will protect the floor from scratching and dampness.
