Why Laminate Flooring is Perfect For Summer

01 Jul 2022

Summertime is finally here! For some of us, that means long days away from work or school. For others, it means that holiday that we’ve been patiently saving for all year round. And for some of us, it means new laminate flooring for our home. Because, you see, laminate flooring and the summertime go together like peas and pods. 

But why?

Value Carpets and Flooring are here to help you find out. We are experts at flooring, with over ten years experience providing our customers with high-quality surfacing solutions. We know that carpets are great during winter, and we know that LVTs practically scream ‘office.’ So with that out of the way, let’s go through the reasons why summer is the season of laminate flooring. 

Laminate Flooring is Cool (In More Ways Than One) 

At Value Carpets and Flooring, we don’t just believe that laminate flooring is cool, we know laminate flooring is cool. 

The reason for that is that laminate flooring is made from large pieces of solid material – material that doesn’t absorb heat in the same way that a carpet does. At the same time, laminate flooring rarely has many layers in the same way that LVTs have. As a result, rooms that have had laminate flooring installed tend to be much cooler than rooms with carpet. 

This coolness can be of great benefit during the summer. It means that your home retains much less heat than it would otherwise. As a result, your entire house ends up being much cooler than it would be otherwise – which very useful when the ambient air temperature is approaching 100 degrees Fahrenheit! 

For those cold autumn and winter months, when your main priority is maximising the heat in your home, all you need to do is put a rug down and you’ll find that heat comes back. It really is as easy as that! 

Laminate Flooring Loves Sunlight 

Numerous scientific studies have shown the benefits of light on both mental and physical health. Not only does it provide us with key vitamins that we need to stay healthy, but on a day-to-day basis, sunlight helps to regulate our body clocks. This means that we have a better ability to regulate our energy levels throughout the day, making those early mornings and 

Laminate flooring is the perfect flooring if you want to maximise the amount of natural light in your home. The reason for this is that laminate flooring is partially reflective – a wee bit like a mirror. As a result, it can reflect a high percentage of the light that comes into contact with it. This helps to make your home brighter than it would otherwise be. This also makes laminate flooring a great product for the winter months too. 

Laminate Flooring is Easy to Clean 

It probably doesn’t need to be said but carpet can be a real pain to clean, especially if you’ve got something stuck in it – and it can be almost nightmarish if something stains your carpet. In summer, when you and your family are constantly coming in and out of your home in all sorts of weather, this can be a serious worry. 

With laminate flooring, cleaning your floor is much easier. A quick brush will clear up most dust and stones that accumulate. Large spills can be cleaned away using a mop. Staining is rare unless something hot or particularly acidic is spilt; even then, these stains can be neutralised using the proper agents. It really is that easy.
