Enhance room decor with laminate flooring

Wood-look or tile look laminate is a strong flooring material that is pet- and child-friendly and attractive. Laminate flooring:
  • Is easy to clean.
  • Resists stains and abrasion.
  • Stands up to daily wear and tear.
  • Needs no maintenance to keep it looking new.

If you live in the Knoxville, TN, area, you can find a large selection of trendy, high-quality laminate flooring at Knoxville Carpet.

Composition of laminate flooring

Many homeowners prefer laminate over other flooring materials because it is always warm and comfortable underfoot. This multiple-layer floor covering has a fiberboard core and a backing, high-tech image, and wear layer. In addition, standard laminate resists water, so it won't be damaged if cleanup is immediate, while waterproof laminate repels water for about one day.

Installing laminate

Laminate flooring is designed for floating floor installation. In other words, planks and tiles snap and lock together and thus, need no attachment to a subfloor. Laminate flooring can be installed on cement slabs, existing hard surface flooring, and traditional wood subfloors. In addition, matching flooring trim and molding pieces are available for most styles.


Underlayment is a must since it gives floating floor stability and support and provides noise reduction and thermal insulation. Underlayment, also called padding, is simply a thin, flexible sheet of resilient material that enhances and protects the laminate floor. Usually, the flooring manufacturer will provide instructions about the type needed and proper installation.


Underlayment also offers a smooth and level surface, particularly helpful if the subfloor has minor imperfections. In general, a breathable foam-type underlayment is placed on top of standard subfloors. With a porous material like concrete, a vapor-barrier-type underlayment is used to keep moisture from seeping into the flooring.
