Yes, it can. However, you should consider a number of things.
First things first – stoves can be heavy. The stove’s legs should be large
enough in order to reduce the point load on your laminate floor. Make sure
the contact surface for each leg measures at least 4 square inches (2x2
inches) or 25 cm² (5x5 cm). If not, we advise you to install a solid (metal or
glass) underlay underneath the legs in order to ensure a better weight
In some cases the area around and underneath a fireplace might get too
hot, causing unnecessary tension on the flooring joints. Usually, installing a
metal or glass underlay can solve the problem. This underlay evenly
distributes both the stove’s weight and the radiated heat, thus protecting
your floor from any damage.
Sometimes, when you open a stove door, sparks can enter the room and
leave little burning spots on your floor. But playing with fire won’t always get
you burnt: a protective underlay can prevent burning spots and makes sure
your laminate floor stays brand new.
*These precautionary measures also apply to other heavy pieces of furniture, such as aquariums.
