The installation of laminate floor on walls is a new trend that has started in commercial settings to later expand into our homes. Per example, the publicity agency Upperkut, the Montreal designer Jean De lessard  has transformed the cold plain wall of a church basement into a modern lively office where design and traditional meets in a warm and cozy setting using only laminate floor on the walls in his creation. No surprise he has won many prestigious prizes in Canada and the U.S for this concept.
