Laminate flooring is economical, very durable and easy to install. It is a great choice for almost any room with the exception of bathrooms and laundry rooms because laminates can buckle and warp in rooms with high humidity and moisture. They work well in kitchens as long as you clean up spills as soon as they happen and only use a damp mop not a soaking-wet mop.
