The moldings will make the floor come to life. There is a baseboard and transition molding. On the baseboard be sure and find the studs during nailing, or glue it.
Try to install pieces at long as possible, but for installing shorter pieces, use a miter saw and cut the molding to a 45-degree angle.
The baseboard is then glued or nailed into place. When nailing the baseboard, it is best to hit the wall studs. In most new homes, the studs are 16 inches on center. In older homes, they may be 24 inches on center.
Use a furniture finishing stick on the nail holes and where the seams are to cover the marks up and give it a finished look.
When cleaning the floor, look at the manufacturer's directions. They will recommend certain cleaning products.
Remember that laminate floors means several layers of wood put together. Water can damage it severally. Any water that may be spilled on it needs to be cleaned up quickly. Try and avoid any moisture on these floors.
If you drop heavy objects on the floor and gouge it, take some putty and put it in with a putty knife and scrape it.
