Capturing the look and textures of wood or stone, but offering a great value, pet-proof and easy to maintain floor, laminate flooring is the perfect choice for busy young families or those wanting a fuss-free flooring option.
Laminate flooring consists of a durable moisture resistant HDF core, a printed decor layer that features the design and a resin top layer with a texture that generally follows the design underneath. This resin wear layer makes laminate flooring exceptionally tough and really easy to look after.
Fast to fit so an ideal weekend project, laminate can be noisy if a good quality sound reducing underlay isn’t used underneath – visit our accessories section on the website for the choice of underlays available. While not as susceptible to changes in humidity as wood, the acclimatisation of laminate flooring is still recommended.
The look of your laminate floor will be affected by three main aspects; the colour, texture and size of plank. Look out for a bevelled edge as this will help the floor to look more realistic too. Laminate is versatile and so it is possible to create many different colours in the same look and to recreate the dramatic look of exotic species, often prohibitively expensive in genuine wood flooring. More can be found on how colour, texture and size can set the mood in your home in our “How to Get the Look
” section in our Education Centre.
With different thicknesses, widths and lengths, laminate is great for homes that want the look of wood or tile, but with a floor that delivers great value. Packed to the brim with easy living advantages, modern generation laminates are ideal for homes that want a good looking floor on a budget.
