Worn carpets, damaged hardwood floors, and faded linoleum are common reasons for making a change. But choosing pergo laminate flooring is also a great way to make some design changes.

The available options for hardwood floors means you can choose a laminate flooring design that reflects who you are. There are also practical considerations for pergo as you contemplate a flooring renovation or addition.

Making a Design Statement with a Hardwood Floor

How can laminate flooring be unique to you? With pergo you can choose from a wide variety of styles and tones. If the visual focus of a particular room is a set of furniture or a picture, you can choose a hardwood floor shade and style that compliments without stealing the show. Elsewhere, pergo flooring can create the foundation for transforming a boring room into a design masterpiece. Not only can you express yourself with the choice of hardwood floor, you can create a look that is uniquely yours with a throw rug, entry carpet, or hallway runner. You can also break up the hardwood floor throughout your home with the use of stone or tile pergo rather than the traditional laminate flooring.

Laminate Flooring Options and Practicalities

You can choose pergo by design, color tones, or by the installation method such as pre-applied glue. One of the great advantages of this kind of hardwood floor is the easy maintenance. You can repair pergo with special putty or replace individual boards or sections. It is important to remember, however, that this type of laminate flooring can loses its design appeal quickly if you use soap, detergents, or wax. With pergo there is no need to refinish your hardwood floor ensuring the uniqueness of your creative designing for years.
