Use Molding as a Finishing Touch

Laminate wood has become a popular flooring choice for many homeowners. It is inexpensive, easy to install and requires little maintenance. For the finishing touches to this flooring, you will want to choose an appropriate molding.

Many people choose the do-it-yourself approach to laminate wood flooring. There is very little mess and you can put these floors down in an afternoon. When you are laying your Laminate Wood Flooring, you will need to leave a space between the flooring and the wall. This will allow for expansion and contraction of the wood during hot and cold months. Since you do not want the laminate wood to butt up against the wall, you will now have an unsightly gap. Since this gap can fill with dirt, dust and pet hair, you will want to cover it up. Using Baseboard Molding will solve this problem.

These baseboards come in many sizes and various styles. Some people prefer the baseboard wide and some prefer a thinner one. They can range from the simple to the ornate. You may want to choose it according to the architectural details of the house as well as the decorative style of the room you will be using it in. You may want to use a nail gun to attach the baseboard to the wall and the floor. Glues can be used, but since most walls are not completely straight and flat, this may be harder to use. Along with the laminate wood, the baseboards can be a do-it-yourself project.

Laminate wood flooring is an alternative to carpet, hard woods and tile. It doesn't require too much time or skills. Using baseboard molding will protect the edges of the wood floors as well as add detail and style to your room. Laminate flooring will provide you with many years of floors that will remain beautiful as well as easy to care for.
