Will Laminate Flooring Increase My Home’s Value?

11 Apr 2020

If you are looking to renovate a brand new house, or simply looking to add new hardwood floors to your home, having laminated flooring installed is a great idea. Value Carpet and Flooring’s range of laminate floors is durable and easy to install. Plus, it has a lifespan of around 10 years. 

Our range of flooring solutions is available in many different colours and patterns. 

With so many benefits associated with laminate flooring we are faced with the question of whether it increases the value of properties. We will explore this question throughout this article.

Why Laminate Flooring Is the Best Choice

Laminate remains one of the most popular flooring choices with our customers, for the following reasons: 


If you are working towards a particular budget, installing laminated floors is one of the most cost-effective solutions. The price of laminated floors is much cheaper than hardwood floors, plus you get a similar effect. At the same time, however, good quality laminate flooring, regardless of its price, will help to increase the value of the property. 

Easy Installation

Our laminated floors come as individual boards or planks which interlock together without any adhesives or nails allowing the material to ‘float’ above the subfloor. In some instances, you can install laminate on top of existing wood, concrete or vinyl flooring as long as your existing floor is smooth and level and you use a laminate underlay. Laminate is far easier and quicker to install than wood or tile floors.


Today’s laminated material comes with a water-resistant core layer which gives you time if it is exposed to moisture. Laminate also will not scratch, stain, dent or fade in sunlight like natural wood.

Aesthetic Appeal

Thanks to the high-resolution imagery behind laminate’s decorative layer, the material offers a wood-like appearance and texture that is nearly indistinguishable from the real thing. Laminate also offers so many different design and colour options meaning there is something for everyone.
