History of Laminate Flooring

Laminate flooring derives its name from the word "lamination." It's a self-explanatory name for this particular flooring type because when laminate flooring is made, a laminated veneer is placed on the top of an HDF (high-density fiber) board with a permeated heat-sealed back for stability. The visual is copied on a piece of HD canvas-board, giving the appearance of a real hardwood floor. The laminate plank is then topped off with a protective urethane coating -- known as the wear layer -- for additional protection. With laminate, customers can get a durable, inexpensive floor that appears indestructible. Because of the incredible durability and range of styles available, laminate flooring has risen in popularity over the years and has become a valued centerpiece for all families. With the increased demand that has followed laminate flooring in recent years, companies worked even more to improve the product with a locking system for faster, easier installation. This new interlocking system eliminated the need for glue and made it that much easier to install the flooring. Homemakers and DIYers alike were immediately impressed with the advancement. While laminate was first manufactured in China and imported, it has since become an American-Made flooring product, using better quality materials and coming in more finishes than ever. Many manufacturers have adopted and built fast-producing, quality floors in the United States.

Today, laminate flooring has gone away from the glue-down flooring of the past and has embraced a brighter, snappier future. The click-together flooring is easy to install, eliminates messy glues and looks incredible. The flooring is easy to keep clean and comes in a huge variety of styles and finishes.

Do-It Yourself Demand

The original laminate was a glue-down product that drew budget-conscious shoppers away from carpet and linoleum, but manufacturer's soon saw the opportunity to turn laminate into a DIY-friendly product by cutting it into planks and tiles and eliminating messy glues. The Do-It-Yourself movement of the '90s, combined with the increase in internet users, caused flooring consumers to become more aware of what they were putting in their homes and other spaces. They could share design ideas, research the different aspects of flooring options and floor shopping became easier. As e-commerce began to take over the flooring industry, consumers stepped out of their typical retail shopping comfort zone and started venturing into more diverse markets, seeking out new products, new finishes and innovations. In this day and age, everyone is searching for the cheapest, most reliable flooring option available and oftentimes, laminate is ready to fill that need. Those searching for quality laminate flooring for sale, they want to find it quickly while still being reassured that they are purchasing a high-quality product.
