Laminate flooring is extremely popular for its scratch resistant and burn resistant surface. It is known that these types of floors are cost effective and can definitely give your home or business that modern and upmarket appeal.
Laminate flooring planks, depending on the type you buy, are either snapped together or glued together. The "snap-together" kind is easier to install but not as structurally sound as the "glue-together" type. Also, the "glue-together" type resists moisture better. Laminate flooring is both easy to lay down – it doesn’t have to be nailed down as a solid hardwood floor does.
It is easy to see why laminate floors are so versatile. The sheer number of design options allows a creative mind to really utilize the material for all of its worth. Since nearly every style of flooring can be mimicked by laminate, interior designers can really set the tone of a living space without the cost or hassle of exotic flooring materials.
Because laminate flooring is basically a wood product it is not recommended that it be installed in wet places such as bathrooms, washrooms, saunas, enclosed porches or verandas, or anywhere that may require wet-mopping.
Extended exposure to moisture of this type may cause the core of your laminate flooring to warp or swell. In some instances, with special installation procedures, it is possible to install laminate floors in bathrooms where water will not stand on the floor for any length of time.
