What plank size options are available for Home Decorators Collection Laminate Flooring?
The width of laminate plank flooring affects the overall dimension and feel of the space. Larger planks can open up a room and make it look bigger, whereas narrow planks are more suited for larger areas. Generally, planks wider than 7 inches are considered wide, and any plank under 5 inches in width is deemed to be narrow. Within Home Decorators Collection Laminate Flooring, we carry 5 Wide plank (7+ in) and 2 Medium plank (5.1 in - 6.9 in) options.

What are the pros and cons of laminate flooring?
If you are beginning a remodeling project, it is essential to consider the pros and cons before making the decision. Laminate is durable and can withstand high traffic and exposure to cleaning agents, humidity and sunlight. The tough wear layer on top does not get scratched easily, which means the floors last longer than other alternatives. All these benefits also come with easy installation, which is perfect for DIY-ers and also costs less. Laminate floors cannot be refinished on the cons side, so once the top layer is worn out, the floors need to be replaced. Since the floor is made of composite material, they are not eco-friendly. Lastly, hardwood purists may not appreciate the synthetic feel and walking sound. We carry Home Decorators Collection Laminate Flooring in various colors, finishes and species, including Oak, Hickory, Pine and Maple.
