Floating floors have become increasingly popular in the last decade.
A floating floor means it is not secured to the underlying floor. Instead, the floorboards are attached to each other either by snapping or locking them together. So why the sudden growth in the use of floating floors? Let’s take a look.
Ease of Installation
Floating floors require little maintenance to install. Picture putting together a large jigsaw puzzle. That’s similar to putting together a floating floor.
Boards are connected together, holding in place to form one cohesive floor. You can either choose from a click-lock version or a tongue and groove style, making it simple for installation.
Most floating floors are eco-friendly, simply because it uses less wood and some are made of entirely eco-friendly materials. It can also be easily placed over existing flooring or a variety of different materials and is highly flexible.
Most floating floors have some air between itself and the underlying floor. This creates some flexibility, which can be easier on the knees and the back.

Keep in mind that a floating floor is not attached to the underlying material. Because of this, it’s easy to pull off and make the necessary repairs.
Or if you’re tired of your current floor and want something new, a floating floor is easily removed and replaced.
