Hi!

Does anyone have any experience with the wood laminate flooring, from IKEA, for 89 cents/square ft?
It looks pretty good, and easy to install.

How durable is it? Anyone had it for a while in a rental?

Has anyone used it in kitchens and bathrooms? IKEA sells a sealer to make the cracks waterproof.

Are there better options comparable in price?

What are your thoughts on wood laminates vs carpet?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Emilie

Ive used very cheap wood laminate once. It was an 89 cent flooring from Home depot . It seems to hold up very well. I had 2 problems with this flooring that I didnt have with a 1.25 per sq. ft. flooring. The first problem was during installation. This type of lock together floor had to be installed in one long row and snapped together at the same time. So if you have a room and hallway that are like 20 feet or longer you may need 3 people or more to put the long piece into the next . The flooring that was a little more money you could snap one piece at a time and one person could do it easily. The other problem which I can't do anything about is that the surface is so slippery that you could really get hurt if you didnt have shoes on or if some dust collected on the floor even if you have shoes on. The more expensive floor doesnt seem to be so slick. Do a little investigating between the price ranges you may just be getting a good floor at a cheap price.
