Kitchen Floor Wood Lamination, Pros and Cons
Laminate wood flooring in kitchens are composed of several layers of engineered material sandwiched together, with a photograph of wood laminated on top to imitate the look of real hardwood with scratch and scuffs resistance.
Below are several pros and cons of having a material that is easier on your back and eliminating the weight of the tile, mastic, grout and subfloor.
- Laminate floors require very little maintenance.
- Half the price of hardwood
- Color match
- You are not depleting a rain forest or harming the environment in any way.
- Appearance – go for the pricier selections so it doesn’t look phoney.
- Unlike wood, laminate can’t be refinished — if it starts showing its age.
- Dents will show the underlayment through.
- Needs to be kept dry, water or moisture can cause the planks to swell or warp.
- Avoid the glue so it doesn’t emit gasses
