Ensure you leave your laminate flooring lying flat in the room you are going to install it in at least 48 hours before you begin fitting. This is to allow the laminate to acclimatise to the room temperature, and to do any expanding or shrinking that it may do in the new environment. Then make sure you clean and hoover the surface you are going to lay the laminate flooring onto. Before you begin laying the laminate flooring, be sure to install a quality underlay to help with padding the surface, reducing noise from walking on the boards, and also to help with damp-proofing (particularly if you are laying onto a concrete floor).
Texture You'll soon discover that some laminate floor is textured and some is smooth.If you have a busy household with a lot of foot traffic and pets, strongly consider textured laminate. The smooth planks might be more visually appealing in the store, but they will show every piece of dust, dirt and dog hair which lands on top. Sure, you can sweep it up in a matter of heartbeats, so it's not a make-or-break decision, but going an extra day before dusting might be appealing enough to go with a bit of texture.
The Harmonics Laminate Flooring is very popular because it can be placed over just about any type of existing floor including cement or concrete such as in a basement. These floors have a built in barrier under the planks in order to make sure that no moisture will affect it by buckling. When shopping at Costco for this type of flooring, you can also shop for molding that will finish off the installation of the flooring. This helps to give it that finished look as well as accent the adjacent floors or walls that it touches. You can find many reviews of the Harmonics flooring on the Internet to see just what other consumers think about it.
To make it easy to install, you can find laminate flooring that snap together with planks that have tongues and grooves. The design of the plank gives you the ability to install it in no time and with little effort. Depending on your room size, most people can have an entire room done within a day, sometimes even faster. When you are installing laminates, always read the instructions thoroughly before installing a single plank.
Laminate manufacturers often market their locking mechanisms as unique, but in reality they're all variations on a similar theme. Tongue and groove locking systems have come a long way since the origin of the floating laminate floor back in the 1970's.
