Laminate as a flooring solution
Floating laminate flooring provides an affordable, easy to install and easy to clean alternative to other types of flooring. Laminate floors offer the aesthetic beauty of real timber along with many practical benefits for a long term, visually appealing flooring solution.
Carpet Court provide many fine flooring products to suit your environment, lifestyle, budget and home décor style. While we all love the look of woodgrain floors, the luxury of authentic timber flooring isn’t affordable to everyone which is why laminate floating flooring along with vinyl, multi-layer hybrid and bamboo are popular floor coverings suited to many family budgets.
Floating laminate flooring has core layers of high-density fibreboard beneath a photographic woodgrain layer and multiple coats of clear, protective lacquer. As with all floating flooring, laminate floors are not fixed to the subfloor like carpet or tiles, but to each other using a click and lock system.
What are the pros and cons of laminate flooring?
Laminate floating floors offer a high level of resilience which is ideal for active family living. It is scratch, stain and fade resistant while being durable and easy to clean. Laminate flooring makes a great DIY project for the budding home handyman because of the simple ‘click and lock together’ design which makes it easy to install.
In comparison to other types of flooring, laminate isn’t suited to wet areas such as bathroom and laundry, and kitchen spills need to be cleaned up promptly. If you want flooring to suit your entire home including the wet areas, 100% waterproof multi-layer hybrid is a more suitable option.
Scratch-proof types of flooring such as laminate are the perfect solution for family homes with pets and young children, also offering hygienic and hypoallergenic properties. Its affordability and easy-care maintenance make it a top choice for family homes.
One of our favourites is the warm and welcoming Big Country laminate flooring collection.
