Laminate floors installed after we first got married, which was five years ago in our master, bedroom and the whole upstairs of our house, and that you are looking at pictures of them and, as you can See they still look brand-new, so that was a really big reason on why we decided to pickle the floors for our renovation. Now you are looking at our new wood laminate floors and overall, the experience has been great. I also want to say that we really love hardwood floors in the wood tile as well, but for us and in the phase of life where and the laminate floors ended up being the best option for us.
I will go into those details in a minute, but first I want to share with you the burning question. Our land up floor is durable and the answer is yes, they are very durable, but that comes with a disclaimer and that's because there are really poor quality. Laminate floors out there and that's why I have this disclaimer so make sure that you pick a really great quality, laminate flooring and what I mean by that is make sure that your floors are at least 12 millimeters thick and you get the best and thickest padding Available to go under your floors also, I forgot the exact amount, but we picked a floor where there are 20 to 30 different floor patterns on the boards, so it and it's printed in different spots on the board every time.
So each piece is different and you don't see the same pattern repeating constantly in the floor. It can look pretty bad if you constantly to see the same pattern repeating on the floor and it looks especially bad at the same pattern is sitting next to each other. On the floor, so that normally comes through with your installer, so pick an installer, you trust who really knows their product and who can educate you and point you in the right direction of your tastes and preferences. So now I want to talk to you guys about the pros and cons of laminate flooring, starting with the pros so the first Pro is.
They can be easily replaced. So, unlike wood tile, when there you have to chip it up in order to replace it and that's a really big mess and since we're playing on keeping our house and turning it into a rental one day, we want something that can be easily updated and replaced Pro number two is that they are not glued down, unlike wood, that has to be glued down. We learn that the glue that they use has an odorless gas and it could be very harmful, especially to little infants.
So I wanted a floating floor. I know there are floating wood floor options, but this brings me to pro number three for laminate floors and that is the price real wood floors in wood tile, believe it or not, we're all about twice the price of laminate flooring. Pro number four is that they're easy to keep clean? You guys know. I love that, and pro number five is that they are durable.
