About Cherry Laminate
Thanks to its open grain and rich, red hues, Cherry was an especially popular choice of wood for early American furniture and cabinetry. Today, you can get the same classic look in laminate. Laminate flooring is made from high density layers of particle board topped with a detailed, textured photographic layer that imitates the look of cherry wood grain to make it look and feel like real hardwood.
Advantages of Laminate
Fast Installation: Unlike hardwood, laminate pieces snap or glue together for easy installation. They can even be installed on top of concrete or old floors.
Eco-Friendly: Cherry laminate flooring doesn’t involve the harvesting of old-growth trees. This makes it a more sustainable option than solid wood boards.
Easy Maintenance: Cleaning your cherry laminate flooring is simple. Just sweep regularly to remove loose debris and wipe up any spills with a damp cloth. Periodically you can mop the floor with a mild cleaner.
Beauty: One of the reasons cherry has continued to be a popular flooring option is its classic beauty. The open grain and distinctive color is beloved by homeowners and business owners alike.
Cost: Laminate flooring is much less expensive than solid cherry hardwood.
Things to Consider
Lifespan: Laminate flooring cannot be refinished like solid hardwood. This means that it won’t often last as long. If you are hoping that your flooring will outlive you, we suggest spending the extra money on solid wood floors.
Value: Solid hardwood can add longterm value to your home. Laminate may look just as beautiful but unfortunately it won’t hold the same appeal for potential buyers if you choose to sell your home.
