It is also hygienic, easy to clean and low maintenance. Browse Carpet Court's range of laminate flooring and other flooring solutions at your local store in VICNSWQLDACTWANT or SA.

    What is laminate flooring?

    Laminate flooring comprises several core layers of hardwearing, high-density fibreboard with a reproductive photographic woodgrain layer and multiple top coats of clear, durable, protective resins. Popular with DIY-ers, it is easy to install using a click-together tongue and groove method of joining the boards, typically in a floating floor fashion.

    The hardwearing, cost-effective and visually appealing properties of laminate make it an all-round, versatile flooring solution which offers the look of real timber for a fraction of the price.

    What are the benefits of laminate flooring?

    Who doesn’t love the natural beauty of authentic timber flooring? But while there is no denying the aesthetic appeal, the cost of genuine timber floorboards can be prohibitive for many. Depending on the wood, timber can also be less robust than high density laminate flooring meaning it is more susceptible to damage from daily wear and tear.

    Perfectly replicating the look of many beautiful European and Australian native woodgrains, laminate brings the added benefits of being affordable, scratch, fade, dent and stain resistant. It is also hygienic, easy to clean and low maintenance.

    The click-together installation system means you can save on installation costs in comparison to other types of flooring, and if you consider yourself a competent handy-person you can even install it yourself!

    Laminate flooring is the ideal flooring choice for areas of the home which attract a lot of foot traffic, such as kitchens, hallways and living areas. It is the perfect solution for an active family home.

    Will laminate flooring last well in my home?

    Carpet Court’s luxurious laminate flooring collections typically come with a 25 year residential wear warranty. When installed and maintained in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions, laminate flooring lasts well beyond the average time that home owners spend in a property before moving.

    A regular sweep with a microfibre mop or soft indoor broom and the occasional once-over with a damp mop is all that is needed to keep your laminate floors looking beautiful.

    With laminate flooring you can enjoy the luxury of not requiring professional carpet cleaners to bring your stained carpets back to life, and forget about that huge inconvenience of having your timber floorboards sanded and resealed periodically! Durable laminate offers peace of mind and no-fuss, easy-care flooring.

    Where should I use laminate flooring in my home?

    Most laminate flooring isn’t suitable for wet areas such as bathrooms and laundries, but it can be laid everywhere else.

    It is well suited to high traffic areas such as hallways, kitchens and living rooms and makes a hygienic and hypoallergenic floor covering for bedrooms, especially good for asthma and allergy sufferers. Pop down some cosy rugs for warmth and noise insulation, and you have a stylish and elegant bedroom floor.
