Considering these tips will be better before installing laminate flooring for bathroom. First, before using laminate flooring, checking the bathroom’s usage is the most important one. The checking process helps you to measure the heat, humidity and also the space of your bathroom too. For your information, laminate flooring needs heat fewer than 80˚F and around 50% of humidity. If you have lower or even higher than these temperatures, I recommend you to use another flooring option. The high temperature will endanger your lamination and impact for its durability. But, you can tricky it by using good ventilation. So, check it first before flooring. You will have many options after checking it.
Half-baths laminate flooring
This tip is suitable when you have already laminate flooring from other rooms inside your home. You continue the lamination until your bathroom. It means that the bathroom won’t have any lamination at all. The laminate floor is only at toilet, so it is called as half-baths. I prefer to do not continue until your full bathroom because the lamination is different with the entire bath floor. We know the moisture has not full as tub or shower segment, right? If you do not want to get heavy lamination, this option is the best. Moreover, you did not spend much money as full bathroom floor.
If you have considered using laminate flooring for bathroom from your hallway or entire house, just be careful especially you have kids or young people in your home. They usually do not care about the floor after taking bath or comes out from the bathroom with wet condition. There will be footprints that won’t be good on our eyes. In addition, the level of slip is also high with full laminate floors in a house. That is why you need to distinguish the floors to avoid any accident of our children.
Laminate bathroom flooring with glue
You have to use glue when installing laminate flooring for bathroom. This is necessary because unlike kitchen floor which need planks when damaged and you just replace it freely.
The bathroom floor is always wet and waters everywhere. So, glue is the best nails for laminate floor rather than the true nail or screws. For your information, screws and nails are easy to be corroded. It is dangerous when meet our feet in wet environment. However, you can use them if you want the more than one layer of lamination. Each plank has to be glued in its tongue for best results.
