Laminate flooring looks great in any home. If you have decided to buy your own laminate flooring, there are some things you should consider before you make your choice.
There is a huge choice of laminate flooring available on the market, ranging in price from cheap to very expensive. In general a quality laminate is durable, long lasting and easy to maintain.
Laminate flooring manufacturers tend to focus on the 'wear rating' of their products surface. In truth though, they are all pretty hard wearing, but more important is the quality of the joining system they use. No matter how hard wearing your floor is, it will never look good if gaps between individual boards begin to appear.
'V' Groove flooring can provide a more 'planked' effect than standard laminate.
This is achieved by proving a bevelled edge along each of the boards.
It is usually slightly more expensive but generally gives a much more realistic wood effect.
GDS Flooring can supply 'V' grooved laminate flooring.
Real wood flooring gives a great quality look to any home and can last for decades, wooden flooring is now more popular than ever.
Real wood flooring is very easy to maintain and keep clean, doesn't build up allergens or dust and is more hygienic than carpets.
Solid wood flooring has many benefits over other types of flooring and may cost more, but I believe it is well worth it in the long run.
Engineered wood flooring when installed looks very similar to solid wood flooring. Engineered flooring is made of several layers of real timber which are run in different directions. This means it is more dimensionally stable than solid wood flooring.
Engineered flooring is more suitable in certain areas of the house where solid wood flooring may not be, such as basements, conservatories or over under-floor heating.
Most engineered flooring is now installed using the 'click' system. This means there is no need for glue or nails for fitting. It is also easy to maintain and more hygienic than carpets.
