Laminate flooring is designed to mimic more costly floor coverings made of natural materials. Wood-look plank and stone-look tile styles are numerous, and these styles are available in click-lock or glue-down designs.
The majority of laminate flooring on the market is designed for floating floor installation. Thus, planks and tiles click and lock together to construct the floor above the subfloor. Because of this design, laminate can be installed on a cement slab or an existing hard surface floor.
The second type of laminate flooring is designed to be attached to a subfloor with adhesive. And like click-lock brands, glue-down brands are available in standard and waterproof styles. Typically, waterproof planks and tiles repel water for about one day, which means that water should be removed within that time frame or the floor may become damaged.
Laminate flooring can be laid on the subfloor in various layout patterns, regardless of whether a click-lock or glue-down brand is chosen. An aesthetically-pleasing floor that becomes a focal point in a room is particularly desirable when the decor is simple and uncluttered. Choose patterns like herringbone or a repeating V or W pattern and a 'random' stagger.
