If you have ever priced flooring then you know how expensive it can be. Hardwood flooring, for example, can be as expensive as $5 per square foot. This means that to recover a 15 foot by 15 foot living room it would cost $1,125. Even a small 100 square foot room can cost you up to $500 if you install it yourself. If you want an affordable flooring option that offers you the look of real hardwood floors then you should consider wood laminate flooring.
A great cheap flooring option is laminate wood flooring. This flooring option offers you a variety of wood finishes in a durable product that can be installed easily by do-it-yourselfers. It is offered at local home improvement store, local flooring stores, and by online flooring distributors.
To find cheap laminate flooring you will need to shop around. Typically laminate flooring planks will vary between $1.77 per square foot and $4 per square foot depending on the brand, style and quality of the planks. If you are interested in one of the more expensive laminate flooring planks then you should wait for a laminate flooring sale.
