Advantages of choosing laminate flooring
Almost nothing can have the rich and classic effect of wooden wall coverings and parquet in the house. But installing natural wooden wall coverings or natural wood flooring is costly and, of course, requires special maintenance. For this reason, manufacturers have started to make wall coverings and parquets with a wooden design called laminate flooring to increase their sales market. In this way, laminate flooring, at a fraction of the cost, gives the natural look of wood to your home but not the fuss of maintaining it.
Laminate flooring is made of composite wood, which is compressed together to create a floor that has the appearance of natural wood. In addition, laminate flooring is more delicate and durable than natural wood, which is ideal for high-traffic areas and rooms that may be exposed to moisture or direct sunlight, such as hallways, kitchens, and bathrooms. We have provided an entire article on different types of flooring, including laminate which you can check out here.
Buy laminate flooring
There are several things to consider when buying quality laminate flooring, including the location used to install the laminate flooring, the flooring’s thickness, the size of the boards, and the ease of installation. In this way, if you want to know which laminate flooring is the most suitable for your home or workplace, you should pay attention to the parquet’s installation location.
Today, laminate flooring is made of materials resistant to damages such as dents, scratches, moisture, and abrasion. This feature makes this type of flooring suitable for busy places throughout the house, including the living room, bedroom, kitchen, bathroom, and basement. Of course, if you want to install laminate flooring in wet environments, you must observe the insulation under the layer and use 100% waterproof laminate flooring.
Installing laminate flooring on ceramics and other floors
Laminate flooring is one of the most accessible types of flooring to install. Laminate flooring usually does not require any special tools or skills. You can install the laminate sheets according to the available instructions and special glue on ceramics or other available floors. Just make sure the surface under the laminate flooring is perfectly smooth.
Since laminate flooring is designed like natural wood parquet, you will need to place the laminate boards on the floor in the same way as the wooden boards. For example, if your room is rectangular, you should set the boards parallel to the longer wall, and if the room is square, you should rotate the panels toward the primary light source.
How to install laminate flooring on ceramics?
You can easily install laminate flooring on any smooth surface such as ceramic. So if you are already tired of the ceramic flooring in your house, you can easily change it to parquet without any destruction.
To install laminate flooring on ceramics, one of the essential accessories you will need is a substrate or silent foam. The use of silent foam actually prevents noise when walking on the laminate. Thus, the purchase and installation of the foam is one of the essential to-dos for installing laminate flooring on ceramics.
Suppose you install parquet on ceramics or any other surface without foam. In that case, it will produce an annoying sound when walking on the laminate, which will reduce your satisfaction with the flooring.
After preparing the foam and laminate flooring to the desired dimensions, you can easily perform the laminate flooring’s installation steps.
