Cabin Flooring Options

I know there has been quite a few threads on this topic, but I wasn't able to get a good answer out of those threads so I'm starting another one.


I'm curious to what everyone's opinions are flooring options for a cabin that will maintain a temp of 50 in the winter and no temperature control in the summer. I talked to one flooring company and they stated to go with a floating floor as the best option, but they didn't indicate whether it should be laminate or vinyl. What do you all recommend?

I like floating laminate. You can find some pretty good deals if you look around. I used kraus flooring and has yet to scratch and it gets beat on.

I plan on using a floating floor system. Not sure if it will be laminate or vinyl. I plan on using something that is waterproof since it will be used in the bathroom and also our cabin (1 room). That way if it gets wet from wet boots/clothes/etc. then it won't hurt it.

A friend of mine has that new vinyl flooring that is waterproof and i am impressed with it. it looks like wood.

Having a laminate floor in my primary house and if I had to replace the floor, I would definitely go with the vinyl.

2 years ago when my addition was finished at my mountain property I had hardwood floors installed. If I had to do it again, I would get that new vinyl product

We did the pergo max (pad was attached) laminate and are really happy with it. So happy, I think we're going to put it in our bedroom at camp. Skipped the expensive "barrier" they say to put down and rolled out regular felt paper. Worked like a charm. 3 guys recommended to save on the back and knees! 1 guy laying, 1 guy running, and 1 guy sawing.

Are we at camp yet?

LCLrutnut you may want to check on your crew. Even if true, I am not sure that it is PC to say that. LOL.

I think if the pad is attached then you don't have to put the barrier. I didn't on my living room floor and it was fine.

Don't buy on price alone, the cheap laminate has a very short lifespan under harsh conditions.
