Question staggering joints?


I'm thinking about installing Uniclic in my kitchen and adjoining LR and DR. I purchased a box of the "wood" type for the LR and DR some time ago and it seems like a very good product. For the kitchen I wanted to install the "tile" type (15"+ squares). Is this product as good? I bought a box of formica fastlock (and quickly returned it) and laid some down just to look at and was very unhappy because I could see all the seams.

If I should go with this product, is staggering the joints as is done with the "wood" type not needed? I can't understand how the joints can be staggered and still achieve the grid look of a ceramic tile installation.

Thanks for any info. Susan

Installing Uniclic laminate tiles

Each laminate manufacturer has its own specific installation procedures. Go to and click 'laminate tiles' to see patterns. Click 'installation' for tips.

You can stagger the tiles as well. The stagger will make for a stronger floor. That said; most don't stagger tiles. Best bet is to lay out about a 5 to 6 foot area before you start and make a "call" at that time. Another idea is to use 2 complimenting tile colors and checkerboard the lay out. BHK Uniclic used this design at the industry trade show (Surfaces) last month in Las Vegas and it was a show stopper knock out. They used tan (BHK062 Florence) and cream color (BHK 064 Aspen) I think, as the colors. BHK Uniclic
