Laminate Flooring – Better Looking Every Year

Laminate flooring has come a long way since the 1970s when it was first popular. Back then, it was seen as the cheap alternative to a ‘real’ wood floor. The timber photos were poor quality, the boards were thin & the floor was easily scratched, damaged, or even broken. When you walked on an old laminate floor it sounded tinny, with a high ‘clicking’ sound that let everyone know what it was

Well… things have changed a lot since then! Digital photography means the quality & detail of the timber images is incredibly accurate & the boards have a ‘real’ feel to them, thanks to the protective coating process that reads the photo as it’s applied. The protective coatings mean the laminates are much harder to scratch or stain & are either highly water-resistant, or waterproof for up to 72 hours. Most laminate flooring is now 12mm thick, so there’s no more ‘clicking’ when you walk…
