We want to put laminate just at the bottom of the basement stairs - about a 50" x 50" area. Can this be glued down? We plan to carpet the rest surrounding it - and would prefer not to use the matching transition strips. If we glue, we could butt the carpet next to this laminate landing. Any ideas? Thank you.
As far as I know the answer is NO. I think all laminate is a floating floor but I could be wrong. Look,at the mfg. web site for the floor you are considering. They will give directions there.
Most laminate flooring needs allowances for expansion due to climates. And basements tend to have the most variances in climates. If you are looking to do something solid with glue, I would recommend an engineered flooring that has a glue down option. You don't have a large area to do, so cost shouldn't really be an issue, as you will only be in need of 1 box, maybe 2 depending on the brand and quantity packaged. Make sure you use the recommended glue to avoid any issues in the future. The glue may be the most expensive part here.
