When you’re building a new home, there seems to be an endless amount of design and functional decisions that need to be made. An increasingly popular choice is laminate flooring, and with the many benefits attached to it, it’s easy to see why.
So what do you need to know before you take the plunge and order some quality laminate flooring to grace the walkways of your new home? We’ve laid out some of the key points of importance to your decision process.
- More durable than your average floor. While many natural timbers can be susceptible to scratches, dents, and the general wear and tear of everyday life, laminate floors prove to be more difficult to mark. That’s because they’re engineered to withstand the heaviest impact, being extremely scratch resistant. It also means that spills and stains can’t get friendly with your floors as easily, with most cleaning a breeze.
- Easy to install. Building and moving into a new home is enough of a hassle in itself, but you can be comforted by the fact that laminate flooring is incredibly easy to install. Our floorboards utilise the patented Unilic and Valinga systems and are designed to click together easily, sitting on top of underlay, without adhesive. This makes installation time incredibly short and cost-effective. Of course, you can also hire a professional to handle your laminate flooring installation, if you want even further peace of mind.
- Design and colour options are endless. You’ll find that laminate flooring is incredibly versatile, with designs and colours to match the scheme of pretty much every home’s individual motif. The colour scale moves through various shades of light and dark browns, glorious reds, smart greys, cream washes and sophisticated charcoals, and so much more. In other words, finding laminate flooring that will suit your new home is not an issue you’ll need to worry about.
