Alternative uses for laminate flooring

Laminate flooring has so many used around the home, once installed; it’s quite hard to imagine how you managed your home without it for such a long time.
There are various uses for leftover laminate, especially in a household where kids rule the roof.
Here are our top 5 alternative uses of laminate flooring:

1.The outdoor DIY ten pin bowling alley

Slat down laminate flooring in a long strip, usually 19 meters long, but when it’s just for fun, we say let the rules slide literally!

2.At home photographic studio backdrop

When starting out as a photographer, it is quite imperative to improvise backdrops and studio setups to suit your clients. This is such a great idea for any level of photographer.
You can even alternate backdrops for a different lighting style.

3.Indoor glow in the dark activities

This idea definitely does not have to be limited to the kids, and can be incorporated into many an adult get together. Use a blacklight to illuminate the room, with neon cards, neon balls, neon hula hoops, neon tape and activities to match! Minute to win it, anyone?

4.Vinyl decals
Vinyl floor stickers can also be turned into indoor activities, like this hopscotch track. We think this’ll make a great street circuit as well, and could possibly even work well in dance studios to demonstrate dancing steps.
Indoor fun, without the mess.

5.Waste not, want not coasters
Waterproofed laminate flooring make for rugged coasters, and can also be given as stocking fillers to friends and family members over Christmas. Adding little rubber stickers to the bottom also make them non-skid, perfect for an ice cold drink.
