Hardwood flooring may not be the best option for kitchens and bathrooms, as the tendency for spills and water leaks can warp the wood. For this same reason, check the level of humidity and possibility of moisture issues before installing it in a basement. Installation is more difficult with hardwood than with linoleum flooring. Unless you are a qualified "handy man", it may be best to get in touch with one of the flooring contractors at your local flooring store to install it for you.In the world of exotic hardwood floors, Brazilians take the cake with reddish hues and rich golds that ripen under sunlight and bring warmth to any home. That's why Mullican Flooring created Mullican MeadowBrooke - to make affordable engineered exotics for those Brazilian flooring enthusiasts.
Laminate flooring is very simple to install and can go over most existing surfaces, with the exception of carpet. A membrane is laid underneath the laminate boards to absorb sound and protect them from humidity. The boards interlock with one another and do not need to be secured to the sub-floor. Hardwood stair nosing is required to finish the tread. Laminate flooring is not so well-suited to spiral or curved staircases, due to the cutting required. As well, this type of flooring can wear relatively quickly under heavy foot traffic. However, its low cost and easy maintenance easily compensate for this.
On the flipside, there are a few other things that you need to know about laminate flooring before you do the installation. For one, laminate flooring does no absorb noise well. When walking across the floor, it carries a loud, hollow sound. Also, in some cases laminate flooring is not very visually warm. While laminate flooring increases a home's value, hardwood increases it even more. Homebuyers know when they see the real thing, and they would prefer hardwood over laminate.
In most applications flat is used, however some people and some colours do call for a high gloss application to make the room standout and bring the slate flooring tiles to the forefront, rooms like bathrooms are one place that a high gloss or medium gloss may be used.
