Is laminate flooring a good choice for hallway installation?

Install laminate flooring in your hallway, and you bring the sophisticated look of wood or tile into your home at a budget-friendly price. Laminate is a scratch, stain, and water-resistant material, so it's ideal for this high-traffic home space.

Gene's Floor Covering offers a great selection of laminate plank and tile styles in our showrooms in Pensacola and Gulf Breeze, FL.


Laminate floors have a backing, fiberboard core, high-tech image, and transparent wear layer. This multiple-layer floor covering lasts between 15 and 25 years on average and is found in standard and waterproof styles.

Waterproof laminate flooring can be depended on to repel water for the amount of time listed in the manufacturer's specifications, or usually about one day.

AC rating

Look for the abrasion coefficient rating, which determines how resistant laminate floors are to abrasion when you shop for planks or tiles.

An impartial third party subjects the flooring to rigorous tests, such as moving chair wheels across the surface and replicating everyday wear to establish the AC rating. As a result, AC3 flooring is the most durable residential laminate.

Laminate flooring installation

Likely, laminate flooring will look best in your hallway when it runs in the same direction as the long walls.

Laminate planks and tiles are designed for floating floor installation, which means the flooring clicks and locks together and, therefore, needs no attachment to the subfloor. In addition, padding, including a moisture barrier, is laid beneath the floor to improve performance.
