You’ve just about made up your mind to install laminate flooring, but you’re still a little confused. There’s so much information, you wonder if it’s really right for you.

What you do need to know about laminate flooring, and this is probably the most important thing, is that it does look remarkably similar to stone, tile or hardwood. You can still have a stylish, highly designed look. Technology has changed quite a bit since you last saw it, which is maybe decades ago. Often, some people do have a difficult time discerning it from real wood or stone, but if you need something budget-friendly, this is the choice for you.

Here are some facts about laminate flooring:

1. First, you want to buy your laminate flooring in Katy, TX from the experts at A+ Floors 4U.
2. It can be installed in any room, whether it’s the living room, bedroom or kitchen. You can either get the gorgeous look of hardwood, which adds warmth and richness to any room, or a unique tile design.

You can even decorate in Southwestern decor with that stone look.

3. Wood looks, light colors, such as grey, whitewashed or blond and patterns such as herringbone, were hot laminate flooring trends in 2017. They are predicted to stay in popularity for a while.
4. Laminate can be a little noisy, so make sure you use padding.
5. You don’t need to worry about the subfloor as much as you would with other types of flooring. Some flooring types have specific requirements, but not this one; just be sure the subfloor is even with no cracks.
6. Get professional installation. This may seem odd to hear, since it is often marketed as a DIY project. Yes, it can be easy to install, especially when it comes in planks or tiles and just snaps together. But you still need to measure properly (and that measuring includes transitions to other rooms) and use saws and blades. While there’s less worry involved with the subfloor, you do need to be sure it’s prepared properly, because it plays a large part in how the finished floor will look.
7. It doesn’t hold on the allergens and pollutants.
