Laminate flooring is a versatile and popular flooring option for homes and offices. It’s an engineered flooring product made of multiple layers of material, including a high-density fiberboard core, a decorative paper layer, and a protective clear film layer. Laminate flooring offers the look of hardwood, stone, or tile without the cost, maintenance, or installation difficulty.
Types of laminate flooring for decorating your space
- High-Pressure Laminate (HPL): HPL is the most durable type of laminate flooring, ideal for high-traffic areas. It’s made of multiple layers of material fused under high pressure and heat, making it resistant to scratches, dents, and fading.
- Direct Pressure Laminate (DPL): DPL is a more affordable, easy installation and maintenance option. It’s made of a single layer of decorative paper printed and laminated to the core layer.
- Dimensional Laminate Flooring: Dimensional laminate flooring has a three-dimensional appearance and texture that mimics the look of hardwood, stone, or tile. This laminate flooring is suitable for creating a unique look in any room.
- Handscraped Laminate Flooring: Handscraped laminate flooring is designed to have a rustic, weathered appearance, perfect for traditional and country-style homes. This laminate flooring is created by hand, making each plank unique.
- Water-Resistant Laminate Flooring: Water-resistant laminate flooring is ideal for kitchens, bathrooms, and other high-moisture areas. It’s made of materials resistant to water damage, making it a practical choice for these spaces.
Installation of laminate flooring
Installing laminate flooring is a DIY-friendly project that can be done on the weekend, provided you have the right tools and materials. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you install laminate flooring:
- Prepare the Subfloor: Before installing laminate flooring, it’s essential to prepare the subfloor by checking for levelness and cleaning it off any debris. If the subfloor is uneven, use a self-leveling compound to level it.
- Lay the Underlayment: Laminate flooring needs an underlayment for cushioning and noise reduction. Roll out the underlayment and cut it to fit around any obstacles or tight spaces.
- Start the First Row: Measure the room to determine how many planks you’ll need, then cut the planks to size for the first row. Start by laying the first row along one wall and leave a gap of about ¼ inch for expansion.
- Continue Installing the Planks: Connect the end of each plank in the first row to the next plank by using the tongue-and-groove system. Repeat this process to install the remaining planks in the first row.
- Cut the Planks for the Last Row: Measure the space between the last row of planks and the wall, then cut the planks to size. Start installing the previous row by connecting the end of each plank to the next.
- Install the Molding: After installing the planks, you’ll need to install the molding to cover the expansion gap around the room’s perimeter. Choose molding that matches the color of your laminate flooring, such as quarter-round or baseboard molding.
