Type of flooring over a subfloor
We are putting an insulated sub-floor in the basement and eventually drywall and ceiling.
Is laminate wood an ok choice for over the subfloor? I do want carpet in the "living" area but I though the laminate wood under the "play area" -- ping pong table, toy area would be good. Not really interested in tile (too hard, too cold).
Also, anyone know anything about the cheap wood laminate sold at Costco?
