Can You Install Laminate Flooring In Bathroom?
The answer is yes. Ted’s Flooring has installed many bathrooms with laminate flooring. If the floor is professionally installed and maintained, a laminate floor in a bathroom can look great and last you many years.
Is Laminate Flooring Durable?
Laminate flooring is very durable and more scratch-resistant than other hardwoods such as oak or bamboo. Ted’s laminate flooring is coated with a scratch-resistant top layer which makes it ideal for high traffic areas. It is also resistant to water and humidity, but to maintain the excellent condition of your floor, any water spills should be wiped up quickly.
Can Laminate Flooring Get Wet?
A laminate floor can withstand water spills, but if the water is allowed to stand, it can seep through the joints and into the flooring material, which will cause damage. Ted’s contractors will apply waterproof glue or waterproof caulking in the seams of the floor as it is being installed which will keep your floors protected from moisture damage and deterioration.
Is Laminate Flooring Good For Bathrooms?
Ted’s laminate flooring contractors recommend laminate flooring for small bathrooms such as a two-piece powder room. Here there is less risk of water spillage and eventual wear and tear. But, as with everything, proper maintenance and care will extend the life of your laminate flooring wherever you install it in your home.
