Carpet vs. Laminate

30/05/2018

Cleaning can so easily be pushed to the bottom of the pile when you’re an adult, especially if you’re a parent. Life can seem like one big to-do list, where there aren’t enough hours in the day to complete each and every task.

Many homeowners will jump at the chance to make their house easier to clean – often opting for rules such as “no shoes in the house”, to save time when it comes to the weekly clean. However, no one has ever mentioned any rules on the right flooring.

Carpets are a popular choice for many homeowners due to their warmth and comfort, however if the right quality carpet is not fitted in the right area of the home, they can contract dust, foot prints, compressions, and fade marks, which can be extremely disheartening.

Laminate flooring however, can offer many benefits when it comes to the cleanliness of your home. As well as looking beautiful by mimicking the wooden features, laminate floors add character with benefits which include:

  • Durability – laminate flooring is suitable in high traffic areas of the house. Its hard, smooth surface makes it resistant to stains, spillages, and scratches. Even though Coldbath’s hard-surface floor consists of over 90 percent wood, it is resistant to cigarette burns and even stiletto heels too!

  • Cost effective – As it is much easier to clean, particularly when it comes to spillages, high quality laminate has an extremely long life-span.

  • Stylish – The HARO range of laminate in which Coldbath supply, offers stunning designs, all based on real wood pieces, with a variety of features such as knots and natural cracks. This means it is possible to have a floor which is elegant yet hard-wearing.

Coldbath can supply an array of different laminate flooring for all areas of the home– even with water resistant properties to be used in the bathroom. To see our range of laminate flooring, click here or visit our Harrogate store. Alternatively, for more information, give us a call on 01423 313241.

Our fitters are trained across our full portfolio, so whether you are choosing carpet, plant fibre (Sisal and Sea Grass), vinyl, wood or laminate, they have the skills to complete the installation to the highest quality standards.man-img

As part of our service, we are not only happy to move your furniture before and after the fitting process, but we can also remove your old carpet or flooring and dispose of it at a registered waste site. Please ask for further information.
