Cork or foam underlay is the best types of underlay for laminate flooring.

I laid down foam underlay under my laminate flooring which makes a great insulation as well as makes the laminate flooring feel much better to walk on.

However my friend laid down cork underlay under his laminate flooring and it is also pretty comfortable.

But from my experience I would recommend using foam underlay for the laminate flooring.

Laminate flooring is a very easy to install flooring which can improve the looks of your home and increase the value if done right.

Most pros use foam underlay for the laminate flooring but either cork or foam will work just great.

Well, to be honest it can be rather challenging plus there are so many materials that it is pretty easy to get lost. You will definitely need a piece of advice from experts. The choice of flooring depends on different factors. But this is the final detail of the interior that will always be in front of your eyes. You can find  laminate flooring installation companies on the flooringdomain.com.au website . This is the site where the best companies are assembled suppliers and masters at laying flooring. They were very helpful to me and I finally decided upon the floor in my home.

There are two options that you can use as an underlayment for your laminate flooring. These underlayment options are foam and cork. According to one’s lifestyle, he can choose cork which is a more ideal underlayment to be used for the laminate floors. Using cork underlayment will give you efficient results, minimal cost, and some sound absorbing features can be obtained as well.
