Furnish your space with the look of real hardwood without stretching the budget. Laminate floors utilise cutting edge photographic technology to simulate the stain, graining, and texture of wood for a fraction of the price. Some other popular flooring options other than laminate flooring include vinyl flooring, bamboo flooring, cork flooring, hybrid flooring and timber flooring.
With laminate flooring you can easily add a touch of style and sophistication to any space. Laminate is very durable and suited to most areas of the home, including living areas such as dining rooms, lounge rooms, hallways and bedrooms.
What are the Benefits of Wood Laminate Flooring?
Beyond the obvious visual appeal of wood laminate flooring, this increasingly popular multi-layer synthetic solution comes with many benefits:
- Laminate is easy to maintain and keep clean. We recommend using dry cleaning methods where possible, such as with a vacuum, broom, or laminate floor cleaner, to avoid exposing the floors to water damage.
- Unlike more traditional flooring products, such as timber floors, laminate planks contain a “wear layer” which adds an extra dimension of durability, making the product ultra-resistant to common blemishes and defects such as dents and scratches. For even greater peace of mind, consider adding a rug to protect high foot-traffic areas.
- Laminate flooring allows you to accurately simulate the appearance and texture of more expensive flooring products such as oak or Australian Species such as Blackbutt and Spotted Gum. It’s also available in a wide range of wood look styles and colours to suit any décor, including timber or wood look laminate. Popular colour variants include white (light), black (dark), mid and grey laminate flooring.
- The clicking and locking mechanism in contemporary laminate floor boards makes for a hassle-free installation process. It’s a relatively fast and easy flooring product to install, making it a great option for DIY fitouts. If you choose to engage a qualified builder, you can often get it installed for less than typical tile, bamboo, or hardwood flooring.
