Hi folks, I am getting conflicting reports on th internet. My missus wants to stain the laminate floor in the bedroom. I said you can't do it, anyone ever tried it before?

If it's laminate, as in foil covered, you can't do it as it will scuff and peel later

Never heard of anyone staining it before. A bit of googling revealed this..........

Laminate flooring cannot be stained as it has an aluminum oxide coating on the top of the laminate. This coating protects laminate from stains – these stains including household mishaps and stains. It is important for laminate flooring to contain this coating to keep your flooring protected.

Strangely enough, it's never been sore. Just be a few weeks of physio to get the repaired tendon working.
