Laminate flooring was developed to give the look and feel of wood without too much concern for moisture, indentations, and the general shortcomings of natural wood. It's absolutely perfect for almost any space and comes in a virtual plethora of designs and styles.
Laminate flooring is what is referred to as a "floating floor", meaning it is not directly attached to the floor. First, much like carpet a cushion is laid down and the individual laminate planks are locked together over the top of the cushion. The cushion not only helps ease impact but also acts as an acoustical dampener.
