Museum uses laminate flooring to create 19th century atmosphere The Lonoke County Museum in Lonoke, Arkansas, is almost done with a project that will give children a glimpse of what life was like more than 120 years ago. The Lonoke Democrat reports that the museum is putting the final touches on a replica of what the town was like in the 1880s, including a church, hotel and bakery.
According to the news source, the hotel is one of the buildings that still needs to be completed, and museum director Sherryl Miller told the news provider that all that needs to be done is to put bricks on the outside wall. The inside of the hotel, however, is done and features authentic stairs, registration counter and keyholes.
The church is also nearing completion as well, the news outlet reports. Waiting to be added to the room, which already features stained-glass windows, pews and working organ, is laminate flooring to complete the look of a 19th century church.
Homeowners who would like to fill their home with a timeless elegance similar to that of a church may want to consider installing laminate flooring. TLC.com reports that laminate flooring can replicate a variety of finishes, and can be kept clean with a dry mop or using a vacuum with a soft-brush attachment.
