Simply so, can you change the color of Pergo flooring?
Pergo has a wear layer that would not be suitable for staining because it's printed. If the wear layer was real wood the clear coat could be stripped, the color could then be changed. Pergo consists of several layers of materials bonded together under extreme heat and pressure.
Secondly, can you sand and stain Pergo floors? Laminate wood has come a long way since its inception, mimicking the look of many types of hardwood floors. When staining laminate, your only choice is to go darker since you can't sand the finish off and start from scratch.
Subsequently, question is, can you paint over laminate?
You can sand, prime and paint laminate as if it were a solid wood piece of furniture! It's easy to skip the sanding step, because sanding is a drag… but it's especially important with laminate. Because it's often somewhat glossy-looking, and important to sand it down until the finish is very dull before priming.
What kind of paint do you use on laminate?
Latex paint is recommended for laminate surface painting projects because of its durability and smooth finish.
