There are those homeowners that have a very quiet and simple lifestyle, and they are free to choose any style that seems appealing to them. However, we often see homeowners whose houses are filled with visitors, pets, and children, creating an atmosphere where one must take more care in choosing a floor finish. Some finish options that are more suited for these active homes include low-gloss or matte, as well as hand scraped laminate
or distressed patina. Not only will these look better in these homes, but they can also hide a lot of the things that make it look unkempt overall.
Wide plank laminate is available, and some homeowners love the finished look it provides. However, a must for this type of flooring is a subfloor that is completely perfect in every way. Unevenness can make it hard, or even impossible, to snap the planks together. It can also create end joints that will not remain flush against each other, and you’ll eventually find more gaps underneath the flooring that you can feel when you walk across it.
