What Are the Advantages of V-Groove Laminate Flooring?

Dear Bob and Betsy,
I’m not sure which type of flooring I should get. What are the advantages of getting V-Groove laminate flooring compared to flat joints?
– Victoria C.

Dear Victoria,

V-groove used to get a bad reputation for collecting dust and being harder to clean. However, more homeowners are discovering the benefits of this type of flooring and opting for it instead of flat jointed laminate flooring.

Here’s why:

It is machine pressed and still convex shaped.

The shape of V-Groove flooring gives it a more natural look. The convex shape and rounded edges make it seem like it was cut from hardwood instead of by a machine. Many homeowners like that because it’s aesthetically pleasing.

It feels nice to the touch.

Your floors are meant to be walked on and lived on. They should feel good when you walk with bare feet. V-Groove laminate flooring does. Because it’s made out of high-density fiberboard, it’s a little bit softer than other types of flooring.

It’s durable.

Like all laminte flooring, V-Groove is incredibly durable. The special treatment that it goes through in production makes it resistant to wear. This is ideal for areas of your home that see heavy or light foot traffic, making it more versatile in your design.

It looks good.

V-Groove laminate comes in a variety of colors and designs. You can get flooring that looks as good as natural hardwood or ceramic tile without the downfalls of those materials. It’s the best of both worlds.

It’s wallet-friendly.

Looking for an affordable upgrade to your home? V-Groove laminate flooring (or any type of laminate flooring) is the right choice! It’ll look good and last you for years without breaking your bank.
