Your Guide to Laminate Flooring

Laminate flooring is one of the fastest growing choices of flooring among those looking for high quality flooring that offers them a vast range of styling options. Laminate is a strong and durable choice of flooring, and thanks to its construction it has one of widest ranges of choice when it comes to the style.

Laminate flooring is constructed from High Density Fibreboard (HDF) that has a stabilising backing layer applied to the underside to ensure high performance. The top of the fibreboard is then covered with a high-definition photo before being finished with a melamine wear layer that gives it its tough exterior.

Since a high-definition photograph is what defines the style, laminate is a really versatile way for flooring manufacturers to design as many wood flooring effects as they like without compromising on the performance of their laminate.

As well as being versatile in terms of style, laminate is actually one of the most reliable types of flooring available. Whereas you may have to consider the temperature of a room when it comes to wood flooring, the HDF that laminate is made from is actually resistant to changes in temperature and humidity meaning it won’t expand and contract like other flooring types. The wear layer also means that your laminate is highly resistant to scratches and other day-to-day damage.

The performance and style variety of laminate makes it a popular choice for any room in the house, especially if you’re choosing a waterproof laminate such as the Impressive Ultra range by Quickstep. Combine this with the affordable price tag, and it’s easy to see why laminate flooring is the most popular choice among savvy homeowners.
