High Gloss Laminate Flooring
By Sarah Freeland

There are a lot of great laminate flooring finishes that you can select from. If you are trying for a rustic look in your home, or a country look, then you will probably want to select a low gloss finish. If you want a rich and elegant look to your flooring then you will probably want to select a high gloss finish.

While high gloss finishes are one characteristic that is often associated with a high quality flooring product, it is not the only characteristic that you should look for. In addition to having a beautiful finish, you will also want to look for a laminate floor plank that is at least 7mm. You will also want to look for planks that are backed with a good warranty.

Once you have determined what high gloss finish you are interested in your next step will be to find a brand that offers a plank that meets all of your selection criteria. Next you will need to find an online merchant that offers you the plank brand and style that you want to buy. Finally you will need to learn about how to order your flooring.

If you are going to buy online you will need to know how much laminate flooring you will need, as well as what underlayment your climate requires. If you live in a humid climate, or if you will be installing your high quality laminate wood floors in your basement, then you will want to install a moisture barrier in addition to the typical underlayment. To make sure that you buy enough underlayment and laminate flooring planks make sure that you add 10% to both your plank order and your underlayment order.
