Laminate flooring in kitchen - Posted by Edwin BARKER

I installed laminate in my kitchen because it was considerably cheaper than ceramic tile (both material and installation costs). The laminate has held up well against an infrequently moving refer. However, I do have a few expansions from too much water. This is my chief complaint. Also, the “locking” mechanism of the laminate does not stay locked all the time.

I’m thinking of installing laminate flooring in a kitchen, but am worried I
might be big scratches and gouges in it if a tenant carelessly moves a
refrigerator into place. That’s what always seems to happen to kitchen floors
with vinyl. They get big rips from appliance moving.

Anyone have any experience with appliances on laminate flooring? thanks.

Low end rentals I will often use the 12" x 12" sticky tile vinyl… These are quickly and easily spot replaced between tenants when needed.

On rehabs/retail I was laying down sheet lenolium/vinyl… but often the contractors would mess it up anyway… so now I just do 1’ x 1’ Ceramic tile in kitchens I rehab. Its a relatively cheap “UPGRADE” about $1 a foot plus labor, grout and mortar.

New construction 250k homes don’t have tile in their kitchens unless you pay to upgrade em… and at the end of the day the cost difference between it and lenolium is relatively nominal.

Laminent wood flooring costs about $2 a square foot and may be a little less on labor, but bet you at the end of the day you will spend more, or break even.

Besides initial cost, is there a reason you prefer vinyl over ceramic tile? I’ve found once the ceramic is in, it will last much longer than vinyl and be a lot cheaper, and less hassle, in the long run. Like you said, tenants can tear up that vinyl pretty quickly!

don’t do it. Good look, bad idea. nt - Posted by Murman

I use commercial tile in the kitchen. Slightly more money, but lasts a lot longer.

Thanks, Jim, for the info. When you say “commercial tile,” do you mean
VCT, – vinyl composition tile-- or ceramic tile? Also, have you had
direct experience with laminate flooring in a kitchen? It seems to me
the two biggest dangers to a laminate floor in a kitchen are appliances
being drug around on it and moisture from spills or someone using
too much water when mopping.

thank you,
