Let us start with laminate flooring. There are many different types and most have a wood effect finish but there are ones that mimic ceramic, slate or terracotta and even metals such as copper and brushed aluminium. This is usually installed on a thin piece of foam without nails or glue, which makes installation fairly easy but can create a noisy floor. Laminate floor coverings basically have the following layers:core, laminate and protective foil. The flooring is made from lengths of high density fibreboard (HDF) and they tend to be a locking or tongue and groove versions.
For homeowners who desire extremely durable flooring and one that needs little looking after, laminate is a wonderful option. Even if you already have your floor covered, you can easily put laminate floor types on top making it effortless to install too. Although laminate has its advantages, it lacks the warmth and quality classically connected with untreated timber and several may perhaps find it loud.
First, you need to know that there are a lot of things to consider before you lay down a certain type of material on your floor. Obviously, different areas need different types of flooring. For example, the basement needs a flooring type that could withstand moisture. So therefore, ceramic tile flooring is ideal for basements. So that is exactly what we are going to talk about right now.
