Many people wonder if they can use laminate flooring for kitchens. Well, you all can stop wondering because yes, you can use all types of laminate floors through out most rooms of a house.
When thinking about laminate flooring for kitchens you will want to make sure the laminate core is made with high density fibercore (HDF) and not medium density fibercore. HDF laminates are great for kitchens because they are very dense. The high density makes it very hard for water or other fluids to penetrate and ruin them. Laminates made with HDF are nearly impossible to damage with water. The HDF core also makes the laminates very hard to dent and/or scratch.
Laminate floors come in all shapes and sizes, but if you are thinking about putting laminate hardwood in a kitchen you will want to make sure you get something 8mm or thicker. Your laminate floors should also have a minimum AC rating of 2. These two properties will make sure the laminates last for a long period of time.
simpleFLOORS offers a wide range of laminates. If you are looking for a traditional laminate flooring option check out our Classic Collection or our Genva-Loc Acoustic Collection. Both are 8mm laminates with a standard multi-strip plank. They come in a variety of colors and textures.
