Moisture levels

When choosing your laminate floor, make sure to think about the moisture levels of the room where you will be installing your laminate floor. Moisture levels determine what type of underlayment to be used, and what type of core you should be looking for. A laminate floor with a denser core is more stable, less vulnerable to moisture and will sound more like real hardwood when walked upon.

Color and pattern choices

Flooring is the biggest feature that will tie a room’s look together. Choosing the wrong color or finish can detract from the rest of the room. Lighter laminate flooring works well in a neutral colored décor and a cherry-colored laminate will complement rich-colored furniture better. Also, be sure to choose a laminate color that can cope with the amount of foot traffic the floor will have.
