Find the Perfect Laminate Flooring for Your Home

Future Retro

This design style combines classic features of the past with the innovation of the future. Modern interpretations of natural textures such as marble, terrazzo and walnut characterise this design. The future retro style works by combining wood, metal and stone in a timeless way. The range comes in a selection of neutral colours. The wooden and marble textures pair really well with metal furniture. The future retro style is a great choice if you are looking for something timeless and simple.

Pure Nature

There has been a growing trend for bringing a sense of nature into your décor. This is often known as the ‘Green Living’ trend. This style is super easy to find a laminate floor for. Any wood style laminate floor instantly creates a sense of nature. These are simple, classic floors that look great in any home or property. Pair these floors with bamboo or woven rugs, plants and light wooden furniture.

Light Urban

Light Urban is a popular city-inspired trend. It focuses on living spaces being more fluid as each room flows into the next. This is a great trend if you are working with a small space because it is quite minimalist. Choose light coloured floors to make your space feel bigger. A lighter coloured floor is also lower maintenance. This is because dirt and dust are disguised and you won’t have to be vacuuming all the time. Try choosing a lighter wood-style laminate floor and pairing it with simple metal furniture. You can add interest with a funky rug or bright cushions.

Perfect Imperfection

This trend is all about combining a deliberate ‘worn-out’ style with clean lines. Try choosing a darker wood style or grey stone laminate floor. You can pair these with antique furniture pieces or ‘shabby chic’ style furniture. Grey, charcoal and dark blue are satisfying colours to choose for your flooring. You can then add woven or shaggy rugs to get that ‘perfectly imperfect’ look.

It can be hard to find the right laminate floor with so many options out there. That’s why narrowing down which trend or style you like the most makes it much easier. Have a think about the space you’re working with. Some spaces are better suited to styles than others.

5 advantages to installing laminate flooring

Durable

Laminate flooring is super durable, making it perfect for areas of your house with a lot of activity- especially little feet or paws! Spaces like the kitchen, living room or hallways can suit a laminate flooring really well as it can withstand the bustle of daily life.

A wide variety of styles

Laminate floors are synthetic, it allows you to have a really wide range of choice when it comes to different styles. Imitation wood laminate floorings can help give your space a more natural, solid feel. These are practically indistinguishable from traditional wooden floorings. Another popular option is grey laminate flooring which can give a more contemporary feel whilst matching any changing interior design style you’re after. There are so many distinctive styles to choose from so get in touch today to learn more and browse different styles.

More hygienic than wooden floors

A big advantage of choosing laminate floors is that they are very easy to clean and are more hygienic than wooden floors. Their solid, smooth texture allows for hoovering, wiping and mopping to be easy and fast so you can spend less time cleaning and more time relaxing. They are quite stain-resistant and so are the perfect option for kitchen and dining rooms.

Thickness

 Laminate floors have a huge advantage in that you can choose the thickness to suit your specific needs. If you’ve opted for an imitation wood design, a thicker laminate can feel more like a traditional wood surface. An advantage of a thicker floor is that it can also help with sound proofing and heat insulation. Thicker floorings are, however, more expensive than thinner ones so you can tailor the thickness of your floors in different rooms according to your budget and stylistic needs.

Laminate floorings are a great option for busy households and workplaces as they provide a blend of style and ease of use to highlight any space. Here at Tech Flooring, we want to help tailor your floors to your specific requirements and bring out the best in your home. We can help every step of the way, from installation right through to aftercare tips. Contact us today to learn more about our services and range of laminate floors or to get a quote.

What is laminate flooring?

When there are so many flooring options available, it can be hard to decide between them. Of course, it all depends on the style and use of the room you are fitting the flooring with. If you’re unsure what flooring to go for in your home or commercial property, laminate could be the perfect choice. Not sure where to start with laminate flooring? No worries. We here at Tech Flooring want to help answer all your questions about laminate flooring.

Why you Should Choose Laminate Flooring

Laminate flooring is made from synthetic layers fused together through lamination. It essentially is made up of a photograph layer and a clear protective cover. This means it can come in a huge range of styles and designs.

What are the advantages of laminate flooring?

It is very durable, making it perfect for high foot traffic areas. It is also hygienic and very easy to clean. This makes it a low maintenance floor option which means you can spend less time mopping and vacuuming.

Another advantage is that it is quicker and easier to install than traditional wooden floors. The manufacturing process means each piece of flooring can be made to measure specifically for your room.

Where should I use laminate flooring?

Because laminate flooring is so durable, it’s great to use in spaces like kitchens, dining rooms, hallways and even bathrooms.

What thickness should I get?

This very much depends on your budget and where you want to install it. Thicker laminate (10-12mm) has a more traditional wood-like feel. A greater thickness also allows for deeper etchings, making the floor look more realistic. Thicker laminate can also provide an element of sound proofing. It can muffle foot noise and echoes.

Thinner laminate (6-10mm) is cheaper so it’s great if you’re on a budget. Want to learn more about laminate flooring? Email or call us today to get quick, helpful information from industry experts.

 What style/colour should I get?

This is entirely down to preference but there are a few things to consider. Lighter colours are recommended for low traffic areas like the bedroom. Darker or patterned floors are suggested for high traffic areas as they will help disguise dust and dirt. If you want something funky, try a patterned floor and accentuate it with neutral walls and furniture. You could also just go for something classic like a laminate wood-like floor and play around with colour in other areas of the room. It’s up to you. Browse our selection of designs and styles today.
