Why choose
laminate flooring?

Laminate flooring is one of our most popular flooring ranges - and it's not hard to see why. Laminate is a type of flooring that works for anyone, anywhere in the home. 

If you're updating a kitchen, laminate flooring can work on an underfloor heating system to add a real touch of luxury to the finish. Alternatively, if you're updating a living room, laminate is a great alternative to other flooring choices, due to the fact that it's easy to maintain and resistant to spills, dust and dirt that is all part of everyday life. 

Our ranges of laminate include plank, tile and wood effects. With a selection of colours and finishes, we can help you create your desired aesthetic. Visit our showroom in Bargates, just up from Christchurch High Street

Top reasons for choosing laminate flooring.

Easy to install, designed to last and available in a wide variety of colours and designs, laminate flooring is a popular flooring choice - and it's not hard to see why. 

If you're looking for a high-end look, without the price tag, then laminate flooring is a great choice. Here are some of our top reasons for choosing a laminate floor. 

1. Affordability. 

One of the most attractive aspects of laminate flooring is that of its price. Laminate flooring offers a realistic alternative to a hardwood floor, at a fraction of the cost. Laminate flooring is made from composite wood, pressed together at high temperatures. The image of hardwood is then placed over the composite covering to form the laminate. As the materials are more affordable, the end product offers excellent value for money. With advances in technology, the look of laminate has never been more realistic in comparison to a hardwood floor. 

2. Durability.

Laminate is made of pressed wood and is therefore even more durable than a real hardwood floor. As such, it's resistant to scratches, water and general wear and tear. Over time, a hardwood floor will dink & scratch, whereas a laminate is more durable against the day to day tests and trials of children and pets.

3. Low maintenance.

To keep the look of your laminate as good as new, sweeping and light mopping are all that's required. It doesn't hold dust and dirt like carpet does & is also resistant to mould and bacteria - this is also great if you suffer from any allergies. Furthermore, laminate flooring is also more stain-resistant than other flooring choices & as such, only needs minimal laminate flooring products to keep it looking its best. It's also hypoallergenic and recyclable - which is great for the environment.

4. Style & choice.

Laminate flooring is more realistic than ever before. Designers are using high-definition printing and embossing techniques to imitate the patterns found in hardwood. You can now choose from a vast range of different types of wood types, stains, and finishes that create an abundance of options, styles and designs to create the right look for your home.

5. Comfort.

Unlike tile or concrete, laminate flooring holds warmth as it’s fitted on a separate underlay. Whether you're spending a lot of time standing in one spot of a room (such as when you're cooking or washing up) or sitting on the floor, you're much less likely to feel the cold or ache as a result of a solid floor beneath you.
