It is fast, easy and the installer’s dream, but that doesn’t mean it can be sloppy. Subfloors, especially, play an important role in the floating floor, so we’ll be sure it’s clean, free of debris, dry and level and do any necessary repairs. Otherwise, those imperfections can be seen through the flooring material.
As the name implies, a floating floor just hovers over most existing subfloors with no nailing or adhesives necessary. There’s a click-and-lock technique if you have it cut into planks or tiles, but sheet vinyl can also become a floating floor.

Laminate floors are made up of materials combined to create the illusion of a hardwood floor. Laminate flooring is very easy to install and it blends well in essentially any room. In addition, it is cost-efficient. It comes in beautiful colors and patterns, providing you with many visual options. It is easy to clean as well.
Laminate flooring is an environmentally friendly option. It is a great choice for those who desire sustainable flooring but cannot afford options such as cork or bamboo. Thanks to better manufacturing methods, it is more than possible that your floor will last 25 years or longer. This is great news for those who believe the misconception that only hardwood floors will last so long.
If you own a rental property and are looking for a way to renovate it for tenants at a decent cost, we recommend that you consider laminate. Your tenants will be please by the comfort offered.
Laminate flooring is also conducive to various styles of homes and decor themes. Studio apartments often use it. It is a popular option in stucco homes, bungalows and even in commercial buildings as well. The industrial theme lends itself well to this type of flooring and a mid-century themed home would benefit from it.
Before you purchase this style of flooring, your space should be measured. Although it is possible to install it yourself, we recommend talking with the Minneapolis – St. Paul installation experts at Galaxie Floor Stores to ensure that the process is done correctly. We will also provide you with advice on how to properly maintain the floor so that it lasts for decades and keeps its beautiful appearance.
Because laminate flooring is inexpensive, you will have more “wiggle room” to put your money towards other home renovations, such as new paint, furniture, and updated appliances.
