Laminate Flooring

Laminate flooring is one of those things that can be a great addition to a remodel on a budget. It can be installed over a multitude of surfaces and is super durable for foot traffic and spills and wear and tear.

In this home there was a A LOT of 1980’s white ceramic tile. It’s nice that laminate flooring can go right over the top.  This was an exiting change because I knew that the wood look laminate flooring was going to really warm up the space and make it feel so cozy. It would also be cozier under the feet than cold, ceramic tile would be. We picked a laminate flooring by Mohawk.
The color is Benton Cinnamon Spice and It’s just so warm and homey feeling. We first made sure the area was clean and clear of debris and our contractor followed the instructions by the flooring company to install. I love how it looks like the old aged oak in the bedrooms andI love the warmth it adds to the room. They did an awesome job, and the kitchen looks amazing, and were able to get the kitchen and living room done in one day .

Even though I am a wood floor person, it’s not always possible and there is a time and place for laminate flooring. I love that it looks just like wood. There is a place for ceramic tile and in our basement, we have a wood look ceramic tile which we adore.

  3. Jen,
    It is looking so great. The floors really open up that room and make it warmer. I can’t wait to see it all done. Beautiful job. Your hubby is doing a great job on that flooring.

  4. We had very similar laminate flooring in our entire house down here in North Florida. It was great because our floor was extremely uneven, and the floating floor made everything come together and you couldn’t tell at all that there were rooms that had higher floors. Unfortunately, we had a pipe back up and flood the floors. Maybe it was the quality of our laminate, but despite drying the floors in about 20 mins, the laminate was ruined. The laminate started buckling, and within a few days the mold smell took over as water had got underneath it.

    For us, that was the last time we used laminate. We switched to tile and despite having to deal with the dirt attracting grout, it brings us much more peace of mind.

  5. HI! I just wondered how the floors are holding up? I want to put laminate down in our home, but we have about 1500ish sq ft of tile. UGH! They look beautiful! THANKS!!
