Laminate flooring comes in a variety of different designs that are suitable for nearly any project. So it is easy to get confused when a sales representative asks you if you want a blocked laminate flooring.
A blocked laminate flooring refers to the design of the laminate flooring. This design gives the appearance of smaller planks within a single plank of laminate flooring. Blocked laminate design will have the look of either 2 strips, 3 strips, or more of smaller planks within the one wide plank. Having this type of design is great when you want more planks in a room, but don’t want to take the time to install many slim planks.
Is Blocked Laminate Flooring for Me?
Whether or not blocked laminate flooring is for you depends on your space. If you have a smaller room, the blocked laminate flooring look can be a great way to make the room look busy. Now, we know what you’re thinking, “Won’t making a small room look busy make it look cramped?”
No, actually. A busy blocked laminate flooring design is ideal for a small space. The busy look will make the floor appear very full and the space will appear larger. If you add 1-strip plank designs to a small room, the large planks will overwhelm the small space, making it look even smaller.
However, for larger spaces, it is better to get a single strip flooring because the space can handle bigger planks. These planks will fit perfectly into large room, giving a bold touch without overwhelming your interior.
