Why Wilsonart Laminate Flooring?

While Wilsonart is a household name for laminate countertops, Wilsonart manufactures a high quality line of laminate flooring as well. Laminate flooring is the newest and hottest trend to hit the residential flooring industry since the early days of linoleum! Laminate flooring is an extremely durable product that provides the look of a wood floors or stone, but it costs as little as one-third less. Wilsonart laminate flooring is easier to install and typically lasts longer. Wilsonart Laminate also offers a variety of other benefits, including:

  • High UV resistance, blocking the sun's harmful rays and protecting the floor surface from fading. Do it yourself laminate installation.
  • Excellent warranty protection.
  • Easy repairs, since damaged planks can be replaced without showing a distinguishable difference with the pattern of surrounding boards.
  • Easy cleaning, since laminate flooring doesn't trap soil. Most spills can be cleaned up with a damp mop or sponge.

Laminate flooring is designed for versatility and durability.

Wilsonart Laminate flooring provides a consumer with flexibility. Wood grains and lightly colored stone patterns provide the opportunity to dramatically alter the overall look and feel of a room by changing some of the accents. A guest room, for example, can change with the seasons by simply changing out the linens. With the lower cost and easy do it yourself installation of Wilsonart Laminate you aren't "stuck" with the same floor for years to come. While Wilsonart laminate will last for many years, the low cost allows you to replace the flooring and change your design scheme more easily.

Consider Changing the Layout

Wilsonart laminate flooring does not necessarily have to be installed using traditional straight line planks, like traditional wood floors. Look at your flooring options from different angles: laminate flooring planks can be installed on the diagonal (instead of straight) -- and tiles can either be laid corner-to-corner or in a staggered manner to create a variety of different looks. You'll need to add an extra 15-20% more material for waste for these types of installations, but the results are worth it!

With so many wood grain looks available in laminate, most consumers are tempted to try to match new flooring to the color of existing cabinetry. And while it may work out in some instances, you will probably be more satisfied with the end result if you choose a contrasting or coordinating look.

Looking to add an instant designer touch to your home? Try combining two different Wilsonart Flooring patterns to create custom looks like checkerboards, borders or insets -- just be sure that both patterns are from the same product line, i.e., Estate Plus only works with Estate Plus, Classic only works with Classic, etc.
