Laminate flooring is a composite product that looks like a wood product; however, you can care for it as if you would your laminate counter top. Laminate flooring is made of a high-density core with an image placed on the top layer and sealed with a laminate covering. Laminate flooring has a water repellent placed on it and good quality floors are infused with water repellent throughout the core.
When you are choosing your laminate flooring cost you will need to take a few things into consideration. The first thing that you need to look at is where you are going to put the floor. Are you looking at a high traffic area that will see a lot of use? Alternatively, is the area that you are covering a smaller, low traffic area? If you are looking at covering a low traffic area, you will probably be able to get away with laminate flooring that has a smaller core.
If you are thinking of moving to a different home in the next few years, you may want to go with a lesser quality of laminate flooring as well. Usually when people purchase stair carpet runner, the flooring is the first thing that they change so there is no point spending a lot of money on a floor when you are going to move homes.
