Consumers have been discovering that there are a lot of advantages to having laminate floors installed in their homes instead of the more traditional hardwood flooring. For starters, laminate flooring is made of anywhere from three to seven layers of materials making it very durable. One of the layers of the laminate flooring controls the look of the floor. It is made by using photographic images that cause the floors to look like authentic hardwoods with grain, color, and even knots. Since laminate technology relies on photographic images, many more designs can be used than are available in solid hardwoods. Even when using a standard wood image, such as an oak grain, the two looks will be somewhat different. No two boards of solid hardwoods will ever be exactly the same due to the natural graining and flaws in the wood, but the patterns in laminates are repeated over and over. Rather than being a disadvantage in laminate floors, this is actually a plus in that if you need to replace a damaged plank in your laminate floor, it will be much easier to find a new one that will match your floor exactly.
The costs for installing laminate flooring in an average kitchen 10 feet by 10 feet can range anywhere from $600 to $1500. This depends on the type of laminate flooring you choose to install in your kitchen. The prices range differently depending on the glued laminate flooring, floating flooring, or the glueless laminate flooring. When you install laminate floors in your kitchen you will need many different tools. If you decide on the floating laminate floors you won't need as many tools and this type of flooring is easier to install. However, the glueless laminate floors and the glued laminate floors require many tools if you want to do the job right. Before you install laminate flooring in your kitchen you need to prepare your kitchen floor for the job. The tools required for this include a pry bar to remove the shoe molding and trim, a level to verify the high and low spots on the floor, a cold chisel so you can pull up the old flooring, and a ball-peen hammer will be used to hit the chisel. You will need to use a putty knife for the prep work and a floor scraper to remove the entire previous residue from the floor.
