Laminate and Luxury Vinyl Floors
Prefer an option that is generally easier to install and more cost effective? Laminate and luxury vinyl floors make for an excellent alternative to hardwood floors.
The key benefit with these two floor types is that many times, they can be installed using the floating installation method. That means they can be installed without the use of nails or glue, which is particularly important for condos, which often have concrete subfloors. (Keep in mind though, that a lot of engineered hardwood products can be installed using the floating installation method too!)
Additionally, some of these products also come with underpadding already attached under the floor pieces, adding an additional sound barrier, which is a big factor for condo living.
