Wooden flooring undergoes thermal expansion/contraction. Therefore unlike marble or tiles, wooden flooring cannot be laid till the wall. There has to be a gap between the wall and the flooring to account for expansion. This gap has to be covered with a beeding, profile or skirting. It gives a neat clean look and is functional. Color of the profile/beeding will not match with that of the flooring. It will only be a 50% color match and no texture match.
Laminate flooring is laminated on either side and waxed on all the edges. Therefore it can withstand water that is spilled. However, when the flooring is laid, the wooden tiles have to be cut to take the shape of the room. Waxed edges get cut as well. It is therefore advised not allow water to be stagnant in the flooring. In case of spill or splash, wipe the water at the earliest. We advise you to store some extra wooden flooring planks. In case of any damage, same shade of wooden flooring material (shade) may not be available for repair work.
