Laminate is not always peoples go to choice of flooring for their Living Room, carpet is normally the main choice. However, laminate should be considered.
Laminate flooring is for one extremely durable. You will find with carpet that this can be stained from even the smallest of spillages. With laminate all you will need to do is wipe it up or mop it up and it’ll be as good as new. I will say the hoovers do not work as well on laminate flooring. However, there is nothing wrong with using a good dust pan and brush to sweep up any mess.
If you are worried about your laminate flooring not feeling very homely, then do not worry anymore. All you need to do is place a nice rug on your laminate. This will make it feel much warmer and homely. It is also much easier to change a rug to match your colour scheme than all your carpet.
