Laminate, one of the more economical floor coverings, mimics flooring made of natural materials, including wood, stone, and ceramic.

Royal Palm Flooring in Royal Palm Beach, FL, brings a large selection of high-quality laminate flooring styles to the Palm Beach County area.

  1. Choosing a design tolerating the amount of foot traffic in the space is wise.

Most laminate is designed for floating floor installation, which means installers fit the planks and tiles together to construct a floor that's not attached to the subfloor.

But textured glue-down flooring is a good choice for the busiest area of your home. Then the floor is more stable, and minor stains or scratches are less visible.

  1. The best laminate flooring for homes has a rating of AC3.

An Abrasion Coefficient rating, or AC rating, is assigned to each laminate floor brand by a third party after a series of tests. These tests measure resistance to impact, abrasion, and stains to determine the product's durability.

A laminate plank or tile that is rated AC3 is appropriate for heavy residential use so that it can be installed anywhere in the home.

  1. Immediate cleanup of liquids is always best.

If you opt for standard laminate, you must immediately mop up water or liquid spills. While you have more leeway with waterproof laminate flooring brands, knowing the limitations of the plank or tile you choose for your home is essential.

Most waterproof laminate flooring repels liquids for about one day, and damage may occur if not removed.
