The Latest Carpet Flooring Trends for 2024

Warm Hues and Earth Tones

Earthy tones are certainly making a huge comeback. This trend embraces warm browns, maroon, olive green and golden hues. These carpets lend themselves to a cosy and warm vibe, but also a stylish and classic look. This carpet is great for a modern home with a contemporary decor. It will add comfort, warmth and depth to the space.

Brown shades provide a timeless carpet flooring that works well in almost any decor. These can range from light to dark brown tones and from soft to dark, including the various hues of chocolate.

The olive carpet is just as popular as ever. It brings a stylish touch to neutral spaces and combines beautifully with reds, oranges and gold tones for a truly unique look.

Take a walk on the wild side by choosing carpet in yellow or orange tones! The carpet ties rooms together beautifully and adds warmth to larger rooms with high ceilings or those lacking insulation. In small spaces, it creates an illusion of depth and makes them feel bigger than they actually are.


Icy Grey

Grey carpets will continue to be popular in 2024, but they will have a frosty makeover with a cooler, icier tone. This will make them perfect for spaces that need a touch of coolness, such as in the bedroom or home office. It can add a touch of glamour to any space and is perfect for those who want a sleek, modern aesthetic. Plus, it goes with everything!

This look is timeless as it maintains a modern and stylish look for a long time. It is adaptable and can be combined with all forms of colour on the walls and furniture.

However, be warned: this carpet is a statement and therefore shouldn’t be paired with too many crazy accessories. You want your space to be inviting and comfortable, not dazzling to anyone walking into it.


Eco-Friendly Wool

Wool is a sustainable flooring option that comes from natural materials. It’s also stylish and can add a touch of luxury to any room. If you’re looking for an environmentally friendly carpet, consider wool.

Additionally, wool is also a great choice for high-traffic areas, such as the bedroom, living room, playrooms and hallways. It is incredibly durable and will retain its sheik appeal for a long time.

Wool carpet is also naturally stain-resistant, which means that accidents are less likely to leave a mark.

If you’re worried about carpet care, don’t be! Wool carpet flooring only requires vacuuming and spot cleaning for maintenance. You can even purchase specially treated wool carpet that resists stains and fading. If there’s dirt on the carpet, simply use soap and water to clean up spills and spots with ease. This carpet fibre is naturally non-allergenic and it traps allergens, such as pet dander and dust mites.

Wool provides a stylish and easily-maintained carpet material. It is definitely worth considering for your space.


Patterns and Prints

Patterned carpet is making a comeback! While it may have been considered too bold for residential use in the past, it’s now seen as a fun and unique way to add personality to your home. There are many different patterns and prints to choose from, so you can find one that perfectly suits your style.

As far as carpet flooring colour trends go, you’ll typically see a lot of deep and rich tones that complement a variety of decors. Brighter colours are becoming increasingly popular for more contemporary looks, while pastel shades are being brought back from the dead to add some dimension to rooms with white or pale accents.

If you’re hesitant to go all out with a patterned carpet, start small by incorporating it into accessories like pillows or rugs. This way, you can test the waters without making a big commitment. And who knows? You may end up loving it and decide to upgrade your entire flooring!


Minimalist Flat Looped

Looped carpet flooring is a great way to add texture and visual interest to your floor. They come in a variety of styles, including geometric designs, diamond patterns, and more. Some carpet flooring colours that are popular right now include light blue, pink, and green. Be sure to choose a carpet design and colour that will complement the rest of your home’s decor. Select a carpet with a loop structure that is short and dense. This will make cleaning it easier, as it won’t get clogged or tangled as much as longer loops. If you do not want carpeting that is as thick, then select a carpet design that has larger loops.

Carpeting with medium-length loops and a low pile height are the best choice for homes with medium traffic, such as those occupied by two to four people. Homes, where there are children, may need carpeting with longer loops and a higher pile height. This can be helpful in preventing injury due to falls or throwing objects on the floor. The carpet colour should also be considered when choosing between medium-length loops and long ones. Stay away from carpet colours which have been known to show stains more.

Why You Should Use Laminate Planks in 2024

By | Flooring ideas, Laminate Flooring, New Floor Installation, New Trends | No Comments

Whilst it may not be everyone’s cup of tea, laminate really does have it all. Laminate planks are durable, affordable, hard-wearing and come in a multitude of styles to suit your home. At Tech Flooring, we love laminate flooring and want to show you why.

light brown laminate planks with grey and white furniture

Why You Should Be Using Laminate Planks


In the coming years, there will be an increased demand for eco-friendly flooring solutions. This means that you can expect to see more textured flooring, distressed looks, wide plank finishes and lighter colours. Laminate planks are the perfect way to bring sustainable style into your home without completely breaking the bank. Laminate can work in any room in the home. So, if you’re searching to bring eco-friendly style into kitchen, living room, bedroom or bathroom, read our blog below on laminate plank trends for 2024.


Laminate Planks in The Bedroom

Surely carpet is the only way to create a comfortable and inviting vibe in your bedroom, right? Think again!

Laminate flooring ideas for the bedroom are not something you’ll often come across, but may surprise you. With laminate boards readily available in a variety of types, designs and sizes, it’s easy to create your own unique laminate planks for your laminate floors.

When it comes to laminate flooring ideas for the bedroom, think comfortable and cosy. Use fashionable wood finishes to create a chilled-out retreat where you can relax and escape from the world with distressed styles. Keep the colours dark to create a cosy and warm environment that you love to relax in. To finish off the look, showcase the laminate planks with stylish accessories and soft furnishings in faded shades of purple or green. Alternatively, create a more modern and stylish space and combine dark greys with warm textured creams and neutral colours.

Regardless, laminate planks allow you to express yourself and create the space that suits you best. Their versatility is perfect for any bedroom design.


Laminate Planks in the Kitchen

The benefits of laminate planks in the kitchen go without saying. Laminate is incredibly durable and will retain its appearance for years to come. Additionally, it is easy to clean, which is crucial in a busy room such as the kitchen where the floor endures plenty of punishment. However, laminate’s versatility can make it an excellent style choice for your kitchen to create a comfortable and stylish atmosphere, whilst still service its core purpose in the heart of the home.

We expect rustic looks to make a huge splash in 2022. Coming away from the modern and futuristic style, we believe that country-styled and rustic themes to lead the way. Laminate planks can be used to create a truly stunning look in your kitchen, especially when combined with a distressed, textured finish. This can give your space real wow factor and provide an attractive and practical flooring solution at the same time.

We recommend introducing darker toned laminate planks, again using the distressed appearance to really bring out the rustic vibe. Combine this with tonal shades on your cupboards and furniture to create a seamless and consistent look throughout the kitchen.

If you’re looking for a rustic and traditional kitchen style, try a knotty-style warm wood effect. This will create a cosy and inviting atmosphere in the room. You could also try a statement wall in your kitchen – go for red if you’re feeling brave. But be sure use neutral and white colours on your countertops to prevent it becoming too overpowering.

We all spend a lot of time in the kitchen, so you must be sure that you love it. Use laminate planks to express yourself through stylish floors that retain their appearance for a long time. Yes, wooden or slate floors are authentic, however in the kitchen they can be tough to maintain. Spills and scratches can ruin their looks and force you to spend extra on treating them. This material requires far less maintenance and can still bring the stylish vibe to your kitchen.


Laminate Planks in The Bathroom

Laminate planks are a great choice for any bathroom. Much like the kitchen, bathrooms experience a lot of punishment, so you need flooring that can maintain its appearance for a long time! Laminate flooring is also a great choice for bathrooms because it is water resistant and can withstand humidity levels that other flooring materials cannot.

To open up a smaller bathroom, we recommend using wide-style planks or oversized tiles. This will create the illusion of more space and make your bathroom feel more comfortable. Additionally, reflective surfaces will help to increase the light in the room, once again making it feel larger.

However, you want to ensure that the bathroom does not feel cold! Hence, Grey bathroom laminate planks are perfect. Not only does it look great and contemporary, but it will also help to keep your bathroom warm and inviting. There is a particular balance that must be struck in the bathroom. You want to create a warm and inviting space, but do not want it to feel cramped. As many bathrooms feel small with toilets, showers, baths and sinks present, it is important to make the room feel as large as possible. Hence, using laminate planks is a perfect way to achieve this in an affordable manner. The wide array of styles allows you to create the atmosphere you want and make the most of your space. To soften the space, we recommend using chrome accessories and introducing pops of colour with towels and mats to create more texture.


Laminate Planks in The Living Room

Laminate planks can really help you make a statement in your living room. Yes, it is important to create a space that is inviting and encourages you to relax, but its a chance to express yourself. Laminate planks can bring both comfort and style to the living room.

If you’re looking for a way to open up your living room and make it feel bigger, consider using wide-look laminate planks. They are contemporary and will give your space a modern edge. Plus, they come in a variety of colours and styles, so you can find the perfect look for your home. Textured flooring is another very fashionable option and can be used to create a variety of effects. You can choose between a range of textures, including wood, stone, and ceramic. Textured flooring can really help to create a unique look for your home and can be used to inject some personality into the space.

When choosing laminate planks for your living room, we recommend keeping colours bright for a contemporary look. Continue the theme with light-coloured furniture and accessories and use a muted palette of blues and greys for walls. This will help to create a cohesive and stylish look in the space.

carpet trends 2024, modern cream carpet

The Hottest Carpet Trends for 2024

By | Carpet, Flooring ideas, New Trends | No Comments

You can’t go wrong with a carpet. They bring comfort and style to any room in the home and are always a fantastic option. However, carpet trends are always changing and it is important to stay up to date. So, our experts have put together this blog to identify the hottest carpet trends of 2024.

carpet trends 2024, modern cream carpet

The Most Exciting Carpet Trends for 2024


One of the most exciting carpet trends that we have seen gaining popularity in recent times is the use of Japanese-inspired designs. This trend celebrates soft greys and muted pastels that can be accented by black and reds. Harmony sees interiors take inspiration from some Japanese traditions and gardens, with minimalist features and natural materials being key. If you’re looking to create a zen-like atmosphere in your home, this could be the trend for you!

This trend utilises plants to anchor to our natural world but does not shy away from everything urban. The use of wood, bamboo, and stone give a natural feeling to the room whilst the addition of plants help to remind us of our connection to nature. Utilising light coloured carpets or tiles adds to the serene feel of this trend, whilst providing the comfort you require in your space.



With calmness being a key part of many carpet trends, exploration epitomises this. As a reaction to all the never-ending chaos that spins around us, this trend is best summed up by the want for a new order of fairness inspired by long term optimism. People are looking for a way to disconnect from the digital world and ground themselves in physical spaces.

The colour pallet is warm and dark punctuated by Rich Velvet Blue and Walnut Brown and there is plenty of nods to pattern, metallics and fine craftsmanship resulting in the use of plenty of rich materials including brass, marble and crystal. Carpets help to create a sense of permanence and grounding in a world that feels increasingly chaotic. This trend provides an air of class and sophistication, whilst still bringing the comfort of home.



All carpet trends must consider the communal element of a living space or hallway. This trend derives from society’ collective power. We as a community have the desire to collaborate for the benefit of all. Because of this, ethics play an influential part in decision making of shoppers, as well as the adoption of a carefree and flexible approach. Hence, style choices tend to celebrate diversity and sustainability.

Like many things nowadays, carpet trends in 2024 prioritise sustainability. Wool carpets are a key way to adopt a sustainable approach. Wool provides comfort, but importantly absorbs sound and volatile organic compounds, as well as controlling moisture in your home. The beauty of carpets is that they allow homeowners to express themselves. Bold colours or even earthen tones can be utilised to revolutionise your home whilst keeping costs relatively low and supporting sustainable lifestyles. Revamping your home can be affordable as well as sustainable!



This trend emphasises the connection between sustainability and technology and is the most experimental of all the carpet trends discussed. The revolution trend is a reaction to the concerns of the younger generation regarding mass urbanisation and climate change. This trend is characterised by “what if?” styles that are both experimental and unconventional. As a result, we have begun to spot somewhat unusual combinations introduced to interior design.

Some of the most popular materials used in these carpet trends include wood, stone, and concrete to incorporate autumnal tones with spring pastel shades. Carpets are also making a comeback with this trend, as they provide a warm and comfortable feel to any room. Carpets also add some colour and interest to a room without going too crazy with your design choices. Hence, there is a careful and effective balance between innovation and style present with this trend.

Dark brown Luxury vinyl tiles in a white-walled home

Luxury Vinyl Tiles for Your Home

By | Flooring ideas, LVT, New Floor Installation, New Trends, Vinyl | No Comments

Luxury vinyl can be the perfect solution for your home. Vinyl is affordable and available in a range of styles and colors. What’s more, it can be installed rapidly, giving you more time to enjoy your new floor. Whilst cheap vinyl is obviously an affordable option, opting for luxury vinyl provides a more sophisticated feel, while ensuring longevity.

Dark brown Luxury vinyl tiles in a white-walled home

Why Luxury Vinyl Tiles could be right for You!

Why LVT?

Our LVT is easy to handle and install, wear-resistant and requires little maintenance. This means it is perfect for busy homeowners who want a floor that looks great and is low maintenance. LVT offers homeowners the warmth and comfort of wood, stone, or ceramic tiling at a fraction of the cost. With up-to-date designs and realistic finishes, vinyl flooring has never looked better!

LVT is perfect for any room in your home, as it is 100% waterproof. Whilst cheap vinyl is also durable, using LVT in your home is the perfect way to guarantee longevity. This makes it a great choice for the kitchen, bathroom, and hall – areas of your home that are likely to experience a lot of moisture. LVT is also resistant to scratches and staining, so you can be sure your floor will look great for years to come. Luxury Vinyl provides a stylish, yet durable floor for your home, making it a perfect option for busy rooms that experience high footfall.

LVT contributes towards creating a comfortable and relaxing home. It is generally quiet underfoot and does not echo sound, improving the acoustics in your house. In addition, it is warm and friendly underfoot, which makes it comfortable to walk on for long periods of time.

Luxury Vinyl Tiles are cheap compared to real wooden floors. This means it’s affordable to change up your flooring throughout your home, without making a huge dent in your wallet. Luxury Vinyl Tiles are also more affordable and easier to maintain than real tiles. Again, this makes it perfect for busy homes with high levels of footfall and spills. LVT can withstand a lot of punishment and certainly allows for personalisation and style.


Maintaining Your LVT

As Luxury Vinyl Tiling is waterproof, you can mop it as regularly as you please. Daily cleaning with a damp cloth or mop is the best way to remove all traces of daily family life. This will take care of dirt and shoe marks without leaving any residue. It is recommended not to use any wax containing products on LVT flooring, as this could leave a film that traps dirt. It’s also important that you remove spills straight away with water or an approved cleaner. Spills can penetrate the surface of cheap vinyl, making it impossible to truly clean it, however, with some maintenance, Luxury Vinyl Tiles can withstand dirt and spills for a long time without losing its sleek appearance.

To find out more about our Luxury Vinyl Tiles and other flooring options, as well as our fitting service at Tech Flooring, explore our website and services.

Whether you are looking for a traditional wood-look or something more contemporary, there is a laminate flooring option that will suit your needs.

Like many things nowadays, one of the most important laminate flooring trends is sustainability. Homeowners are increasingly looking for environmentally friendly flooring options, and reclaimed wood has become increasingly popular. It is made from recycled materials, so you can feel good about your flooring choice. In addition, reclaimed wood often has a unique look that can add character to your bedroom. However, as this has become increasingly popular, the price tag has risen. So, homeowners are looking for an alternative – enter laminate flooring.

Reclaimed wood-look laminate flooring isn’t actually made from the real thing and rather is made to imitate the texture and colours, making it a fraction of the cost. This means that you can get the look of reclaimed wood flooring without spending a fortune. In addition, laminate flooring is easy to clean and maintain, so you won’t have to worry about upkeep. The combination of tones lend themselves to creating a warm and comfortable bedroom, whilst retaining style and class. Laying laminate flooring in the bedroom might not be everyone’s first choice. However, there is no doubting that it provides a cost-effective solution that is still stylish.


Laminate Flooring for Kitchens

The kitchen is the heart of your home and must be stylish and durable. One of the biggest laminate flooring trends for kitchens will be the increased use of water-resistant laminate flooring. The kitchen is a busy room and must be able to withstand significant punishment from footfall, spills and liquids. Hence, we predict that waterproof, highly-durable laminate floors will be incorporated into many kitchens.

Weathered and distressed wood-look styles are touted to be a huge seller in the upcoming year. This style is perfect for helping your home feel rustic and well-loved. Incorporating this style into your kitchen will give it a warm and inviting feeling that will be sure to please everyone who enters. If you’re looking to give your kitchen a facelift, but retain the comfortable vibe, distressed looks add character to a room whilst avoiding clutter.


Living Rooms

Surely you can’t have laminate flooring in your living room, right? WRONG!

These laminate flooring trends can be the perfect solution for your living room. We have mentioned how durable it is, but laminate is highly customisable and can be suited to any room.

A living room is a space to decompress and relax. Soothing colours incorporated into flooring is the perfect way to do encourage it. White-washed floorboards that incorporate a relaxed and rustic chic are set to sky rocket this year. Light-coloured laminate is the perfect way to add this to your living room to create a relaxed atmosphere in your home.

However, if light, cool tones aren’t your thing, high variation laminate flooring may be the perfect choice. This type of flooring features a range of different colours and textures. So, you can find one that perfectly suits your style. Whether you’re looking for a rustic aesthetic or something more modern, there’s a high variation laminate flooring option out there for you.


Laminate Flooring Patterns

Laminate flooring is highly customisable. You are no longer restricted to laying basic, straight and narrow laminate planks. There are a multitude of different patterns to now choose from, allowing you to design your home flooring in any way you please. There are many differing patterns and designs emerging as key laminate flooring trends for 2024.

Herringbone and Chevron flooring is one of the most popular patterns at the moment, and it’s not hard to see why. It has a very timeless look which will never go out of style, and it can be used in any room in your home. Plus, it’s perfect for hiding any imperfections in your flooring surface. We have only seen this design incorporated into laminate flooring, but the tightly laid, alternating boards can create texture and make spaces look bigger. This allows you to think outside of the box when designing your space and can make your floor the centrepiece of any room.

Wide plank laminate flooring is set to be a big trend this year. The longer, wider planks help to give the illusion of space. This makes your home look bigger than it actually is. This can be a great way to make a small room feel more spacious and open, without having to renovate. Plus, the warm wood tones of laminate flooring will help to create a cosy and inviting atmosphere in any room. Not only does this trend look great, but it is also incredibly practical. Longer planks are much easier to keep clean and free from dirt and dust. They are perfect for busy families.


Laying laminate flooring in the various rooms of your home can be a great, affordable way to revamp your space without breaking the bank. Laminate flooring has three key benefits over other types of flooring: Durability, Customisation and Affordability. As we have highlighted, laying laminate flooring is possible in any room in your home as you can design it to suit the feel you want to create. It’s far easier to maintain than flooring types such as carpet or hardwood and will retain its great look for a long time.

Wood-Look Vinyl

A Wood vinyl tile is a great option to consider if you want to add the warmth and natural beauty of wood without worrying about scratches or dings. Wood vinyl gives off an authentic look that will make your home feel more like a cabin in the woods than just another house on the block. If this sounds appealing, reach out today so we can help walk you through the process.


Wood-look vinyl has become increasingly popular in recent years because of how realistic it looks. With the advancements in modern technology, wood-look vinyl is just as realistic as wood-look laminate. This means that you can get the look of wood without having to worry about the extra maintenance that comes with it. There are a multitude of wooden colours and designs to opt for to ensure you get the look that suits you best! These include:

  • Light oak
  • Dark oak
  • Beech
  • Maple
  • Pine
  • Walnut

Additionally, you have complete control over the design of the vinyl tile. If you want to opt for a rustic appearance, you can choose distressed looks that bring character and age to your floor. Alternatively, select micro bevelled edges, that adds definition between planks. This only enhances the authenticity of the look as the vinyl tiles replicate wooden planks. Another option is wire brush design. The vinyl tiles that have this look are made to show subtle, intentional wire scratches, leaving the appearance of exposed wood on the surface.

These designs give a unique and rustic look that can really make your flooring stand out. If you’re looking to introduce vinyl tiles to your home, then this is the perfect option for you!


Stone-Look Vinyl

Stone and slate looks are incredibly popular in kitchens and bathrooms in particular. They bring a contemporary feel to any home as the sleek appearance introduces modern, cool tones.

Distressed and textured looks can be incorporated into vinyl tiles replicating slate or stone tiles.  If you’re looking for a vinyl tile floor that has a natural stone look, vinyl also comes in a range of different colours and designs to choose from. These include:

  • Limestone: Limestone vinyl tiles can give your floor a sophisticated and luxurious look. The gorgeous natural patterns of limestone are highly sought-after for a luxurious look.
  • Marble: Marble vinyl tiles are perfect for a timeless and elegant look. The natural veining of marble is beautiful and unique, and the translucence of the vinyl gives your floor a luxurious feel.
  • Slate: Strong colours and defined edges are what slate is all about. Sharp and contemporary slate looks will be super trendy in 2023. The stressed look brings texture and personality to a room.

Comparing Different Flooring Types

By | Carpet, Flooring ideas, Laminate Flooring, LVT, Vinyl | No Comments

Changing your floor can be a great way to revamp your home without spending a fortune, but it is not an easy task in knowing what floor to go for. So, we have developed this guide to help you understand whether Carpet, Laminate or Vinyl is the best floor for you. If you are searching for flooring in Tonbridge, then continue reading this blog, or get in touch today!

Comparing Carpet, LVT and Laminate Flooring


Carpets and Durability

You know what you get with carpet, it has been a solid staple for years and is often installed by our flooring experts in Tonbridge. Carpet’s durability majorly varies depending on the material that is used. Whilst many people may believe it is not a durable flooring option, that is not necessarily the case. When it comes to durability, nylon is usually the best option as it is the most resilient to foot traffic and general wear and tear. Polyester carpets are a close second, with olefin closely behind. However, all three of these materials can last for many years with adequate care. Polyester and wool are stain resistant, however as wool is a natural fibre, rather than a synthetic one, it does usually cost more.

As a general rule of thumb, the softer the carpet, and the higher the loop pile, the less durable a carpet will be. With all this taken into consideration, it is important to understand that caring for your carpet will enable it to last for years. As with any floor, a little TLC can go a long way.


Laminate and Durability

Laminate flooring is known for its durability and our flooring experts in Tonbridge rave about it. It is particularly hard-wearing and resistant to stains, scratches, chips, and liquids. Additionally, laminate is often UV-resistant, which allows it to retain its stunning appearance for years, regardless of how much sunlight it receives. Unlike carpets, laminate does not require as much effort when cleaning, a simple mop or vacuum will often do the trick, allowing you to spend less time on cleaning! Whilst it may not be as comfortable underfoot, laminate certainly redeems itself with its durability and its versatility, but we’ll get into that later!


Vinyl and Durability

Our flooring experts in Tonbridge love vinyl. Vinyl is a popular option because it is durable and affordable. A decent vinyl floor should last a good few years, making it a good investment for your home. If you really want to guarantee quality, opt for Luxury Vinyl Tiling (LVT). LVT is a thicker material and is often more durable than standard vinyl, allowing it to retain its fabulous look for an even longer period of time. However, given the “luxury” aspect of the tiling, you are of course paying for quality. Either way, you can rest assured that vinyl is particularly durable without breaking the bank!


Style and Appearance

Carpet Stylings

You know what you get with a carpet. Carpets are a great way to introduce warmth and comfort into any room, particularly a bedroom or living room. A light coloured carpet can create the illusion of space in smaller rooms, making it feel less cramped. Alternatively, darker colours can bring a cosy and warmer atmosphere to your room. Additionally, you can make a statement with your carpet. Vibrant colours can be complemented well with neutral tones in the walls and furniture to make your carpet the centrepiece of a room. You must obviously be careful not to overdo it, but vibrant carpets can really revamp your space!


Laminate Stylings

Laminate can be the perfect substitute to real wood flooring. With its many designs mimicking the appearance of wood, you can really introduce a stylish look through laminate. Many laminate floors can come with a ‘distressed’ wood appearance. This can help you bring a rustic vibe to your home, which is a very popular trend for 2022. Additionally, as the size and orientation of laminate planks can be customised, you can begin to create textured and interesting designs on your floor. This can help you in creating a larger feeling room and add a bit of character to a kitchen or hallway that may otherwise be a bit bland. Yes, laminate’s faux wood appearance obviously isn’t the same as real hard-wood. However, if you are looking for a combination of affordability, durability and style, then laminate could just be the perfect floor for you.


Vinyl Styling

Much like laminate, vinyl floors can mimic the appearance of expensive wood or ceramic tiles. Vinyl flooring is a great option for people who are looking for a flooring solution that is affordable and stylish. Standard vinyl can do a solid job at mimicking stone or ceramic flooring, and there are many, many designs patterns and colours available, including those that look like wood. However, once again, you must be cautious as it will not look exactly like the real thing. Vinyl’s smooth finish does somewhat remove the feel of wood or ceramic as “cracks” and textures are not the same as what you get in the real thing. However, it is undeniably an excellent substitute.


LVT is more convincing in replicating the real look of a hard wood floor. Again, it is not quite the real thing, but its raised cost does bring a more authentic appearance. Regardless of what type of vinyl you select, you can be certain that you will have plenty of options! Vinyl flooring is particularly customisable and can be designed to suit any room in any home! Whether its sleek and comfortable look for a kitchen or dining room, or something a bit more modern for a bathroom, vinyl can cater for it. This flooring type really allows you to express yourself without spending arm and limb on authentic ceramic tiles or wooden planks.



Regardless of the floor you choose, we recommend having it installed by a flooring professional. Whilst laminate’s “Click-flooring” can be easy to install if you know what you’re doing, you need to be certain that it is done safely and correctly to ensure it remains in place for a long time. Carpets will definitely require a flooring professional, there are many processes involved to ensure that your carpet is solidly in place and is not going to shift underfoot.

We love laminate floors. We can admire the beauty, the texture, laminate floor provides because we can see it. This is why laminate flooring is so popular. It’s a great way to get the look of natural materials without all of the expense and maintenance that comes with them. The laminate flooring itself may be beautiful to look at, but the laminate underlayment is just as important. This layer of material lies between the flooring and the subfloor and helps to improve the overall stability and function of your laminate floor. It also helps to insulate your floor and reduce noise

If you are considering laminate flooring for your home, be sure to also consider the quality of the laminate underlayment. This ensures that your laminate floor will look great and perform well for years to come. Contact us today to learn more!

Learn About Laminate Underlayment

What is Laminate Underlayment?

Laminate floor underlayment is a crucial step in the installation process of laminate flooring. The underlayment provides a layer of cushioning and insulation between the laminate flooring and the subfloor. This helps to protect the laminate from damage, as well as to reduce noise and vibrations. Additionally, it can help to extend the life of your laminate flooring.

There are a variety of different types of laminate floor underlayment available on the market. It is important to select an underlayment that is compatible with your specific laminate flooring. Make sure to read the manufacturer’s instructions or carefully or contact us to determine which type of underlayment is best for your flooring.

Whilst some laminate planks come with laminate underlayment, it is not optional. If your laminate planks don’t have it already attached, we recommend that you buy rolls of underlayment on which to install your laminate floor. This will help protect your laminate from damage and increase its lifespan.


Why Is Laminate Underlayment Important?

The importance of laminate underlayment can’t be overstated. It is a crucial part of the laminate flooring installation process, and it helps to ensure your new floor looks great and lasts for years.

Laminate flooring is made of several layers. The top layer is the laminate itself, which is usually a wood or stone pattern. Beneath that is the underlayment, a thin layer of foam or other material. And beneath that is the subfloor, the actual surface you walk on.

The laminate flooring installation process begins with installing the underlayment. This layer provides cushioning and insulation, which help to protect your laminate from damage. It also ensures that your floor will be level and stable, preventing it from wobbling or buckling over time. This ensures that the laminate floor is protected and maintains its stunning appearance for years to come. Installing high quality laminate underlayment provides homeowners with peace of mind as they know their floor will not need maintenance or changing for many years.

Laminate underlayment ensures the safety of the floor. By ensuring its stability, it prevents the floor from slipping of gathering, causing people to trip or fall. Furthermore, it ensures the integrity of the floor as it prevents liquids from seeping into the floor and causing the laminate to become deformed.


Vapour Barriers

What are vapour barriers and what do they have to do with laminate underlayment?

Vapour barriers are particularly important on concrete floors. A floor vapour barrier is typically a sheet of plastic that slows moisture from moving through a wall or subfloor. This layer of protection is important because it helps to keep humidity levels in check, which can help to prevent the growth of mould and mildew. Additionally, a vapour barrier can help to improve the insulation of your floor, which can lead to energy savings.

Even if your laminate planks have a vapour barrier, it never hurts to add another. If mistakes are made during installation, tears in the material can violate the integrity of the vapour barrier and prevent it from doing its job. Therefore, we do often suggest that adding another vapour barrier alongside laminate underlayment is important in preserving your floor.


Factors to Consider

When installing laminate flooring, it is important to use a quality laminate floor underlayment. This will protect the laminate flooring from moisture damage and also provide a cushioning layer, which will make the floor more comfortable to walk on.

Generally, most types of underlay are suitable with laminate flooring, due to the fact that laminate flooring is fitted as a floating floor, with no need to be fixed with nails, glues or staples. However, it is important to choose an underlayment that is compatible with the type of laminate flooring you are using.

It is important to consider the type of floor your laminate underlayment is being placed on.


Concrete Subfloor

If your sub-floor is made of concrete, then it is necessary that you use a moisture resistant underlay. This will protect the laminate flooring from moisture damage and help to keep the flooring in good condition for years to come. This type of underlay will ensure your planks will not swell and get damaged from mould; this ensures the floor stays pristine for years to come.


Wooden sub-floors

If your sub-floor is made of wood, then there is a range of underlays to choose from and your final selection should be based on a few factors.

If you want to create a quiet environment into the room, you are fitting your laminate flooring the best option would be to invest in a sound resistant underlay. This will help to block any noise that may come from the laminate flooring and make the room more peaceful and reduce echoes. Rubber laminate underlays are perfect here as they make a large impact on sound and protects your floor from moisture.

To keep energy prices low, we recommend installing a thermal insulation laminate underlay. This will help to keep the room warm in winter and cool in summer, as the laminate flooring will not absorb heat. This is perfect for those who want to save a few pennies on their energy bills!

For extra comfort underfoot, we recommend using a padded laminate underlay. This will make walking on the laminate flooring more comfortable and reduce noise. This is particularly perfect in living rooms and bedrooms where comfort is particularly important.

If you wish to install underfloor heating, you can select a laminate underlay designed to accommodate this. It is important to ensure your laminate underlay is compatible with underfloor heating as the heat could cause the floor to warp and damage your floors.
