Laminate Floor Install Over Linoleum in Madison NJ

Project Info

Location: Madison, NJ
Scope of Work: Floor Installation, Carpentry

Linoleum flooring was once a very popular flooring choice for kitchens. It’s waterproof, is extremely durable and relatively soft underfoot. However, for aesthetic reasons, linoleum has gone out of style. These homeowners wanted to update their kitchen by swapping out the linoleum for a more natural look.

Monk’s Method

After we took measurements of their kitchen and side entryway, these Madison NJ homeowners visited our showroom and selected a light wood laminate flooring tile. We determined that it would be possible to install the laminate directly over the existing linoleum. The linoleum would offer a little insulation that would help soften noise and give the laminate a slight cushion.

We began by removing the appliances and quarter round trim all along the perimeter of the floor and cabinets. We installed the laminate under the appliances. Once all the laminate flooring was installed, we installed new quarter round molding. A new threshold was also installed between the kitchen and side entryway.

In just two days this laminate floor install project was complete and this kitchen looks great!
