comment How much does the quality of laminated flooring depend on its thickness?
As detailed and reasonable as this answer is, and as much as I appreciate that you won't use laminate in the kitchen, it has nothing to do with my actual question - I'm not asking whether it's a good idea to put laminate in the kitchen, but about how important the thickness of the laminate is to it's overall quality, all else being equal. FWIW, though, the Mohawk warranty covers water except under certain circumstances, including standing water or inadequate subfloor moisture handling and the like, which I am not concerned with.

I've removed the kitchen reference, because it's distracting from the real point of the question.

That's true of course, but we're replacing an existing laminate that's covering asbestos tiles. We've had relatively good luck with what we've got - it's in its 10th year of a 5 year warranty.

comment How do I repair a canned light that's falling down?
you might also be able to find a wider trim piece to cover a larger hole, if the looseness of the fixture has enlarged the hole in the drywall. Of course you may also need to replace the trim on all the other ones, too, if they don't match well enough.
