Wood Laminate flooring
Laminate wood flooring is a cheaper alternative to real wood flooring. Although it is an imitation of wood, and not as durable, it can still be purchased to last up to 25 years.
Available in thicknesses of between 6-10mm, with 6mm lasting around 2-3 years and 9.5mm should last approximately 20-25 years. Granted, a solid wood flooring can last even longer, however, for their price, laminate floors are a very viable alternative.
As well as being hard wearing, laminate flooring is also very straightforward to look after, due to it being waterproof. It simply needs to be regularly cleaned with a damp mop along with a hoover, in order to deter dust and grit, which can grind away the surface of the laminate.
