What is laminate flooring?
Laminate flooring is made up of multiple synthetic layers that are designed to replicate real wood. It is capable of being very realistic – most people can’t tell wood and laminate apart on appearance alone. This is created through the use of a photographic applique layer and a clear protective layer that is positioned over the top of it. The flooring comes as a series of tongue and groove planks, so it will provide a smooth and uniform appearance when fitted.
Laminate has come a long way and is a strong contender for the majority of customers wanting wooden flooring. It is fused together using a lamination process that makes it strong and hardwearing, meaning it is highly resistant to scratches and marks. Unlike solid wood flooring, laminate is virtually maintenance free and is suitable for use in high footfall areas.
