Laminate Flooring Drawbacks. Laminate floors do not do well when they are exposed to moisture, precisely why they are rarely used in bathrooms, laundry rooms and certain areas of the kitchen. The water could cause the floor to swell and become uneven, perhaps the most unforgiving characteristic of any floor. Another issue with laminate flooring is peaking, or when two planks get pushed together creating raised joints. If the planks were incorrectly glued to the subfloor or inadequate space between the flooring edge was created, peaking can occur.
Laminate is another popular direction to take if you’re going for a hardwood look without the cost. Amber Shay, VP of Design for Standard Pacific Homes’ (Denver) explains why it’s a common choice, "Laminate is a thin piece of wood on a core that’s made of something else. It creates structural stability, so you have less movement in the floor and it’s less expensive than solid hardwood." They won’t be hard to find, flooring stores everywhere are equipped with ceramic and porcelain tile selections for just about any style home.
