Why we love laminate flooring

Why we love laminate flooring

29th Sep 2021

Laminate flooring as a product has developed significantly over the past decade with manufacturers constantly evolving their engineering processes and techniques.

As a result, laminate flooring is now one of the UK’s most popular flooring choices, offering an authentic appearance akin to real wood or ceramics, alongside a plethora of practical benefits.

So what makes laminate flooring so popular?

A highly resilient and durable flooring option

One of the most appealing attributes of a laminate floor is its practicality. Each of the laminate floors at The Wood Flooring Co. is finished with a tough melamine resin surface layer. This makes it highly resilient, tough against micro scratching and naturally repellent against dirt.

The top layer is also impermeable to water and they have each been engineered with edge impregnation to protect against moisture. Suitable for most areas of the house including kitchens, entranceways and living areas, it’s an ideal choice for busy households.

Promotes a healthy living environment

Laminate is also a particularly hygienic flooring option, helping to promote a healthy living environment. It is low on emissions and allergens, so is ideal for households with pets, children and allergy sufferers.

Laminate flooring is extremely easy to clean and there is no requirement for ongoing surface treatments. Routine cleaning with a broom or vacuum cleaner is sufficient, whilst dirty marks can be easily wiped off with a damp cloth.

Authentic finishes to replicate natural materials

Central to each of laminate floors is a nod to the character and authenticity of real wood, achieved through authentic oak grains, textured surfaces and a 4-sided bevelled edge as standard. Whether you're considering one of our rustic wood laminate floors, or one of our herringbone laminate planks, the natural looking surface textures of our laminate floors perfectly replicate the natural appeal real wood.
