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 a new laminate flooring for our home. 

Because, you see, laminate flooring and the summertime go together like peas and pods. 

But why?

Read on to find out!

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, and 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 is cooler than it would be otherwise. 

During the summertime, this makes your home a lot more comfortable. And for those 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’s 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.

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 – like a mirror. As a result, it can reflect a high percentage of the light that comes into contact with the flooring. This helps to make your home brighter than it would otherwise be. 

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. That’s not even mentioning the near-odyssey that comes with cleaning and carpet if a liquid gets spilt on it. In summer, when you and your family are constantly coming in and out of your home, this can be a serious consideration. 

With laminate flooring, cleaning your floor is much easier. A quick brush will clear up most dust and stones that accumulate in your home as a result of normal day-to-day activity, and large spills can be cleaned away quickly using a mop. This is much easier than it would be using a hoover, and you don’t have to worry about using a hoover.
