The beauty of laminate is that it looks good everywhere! Because it’s warm and comfortable underfoot, laminate is perfect for bedroom flooring, and thanks to its stain resistance and easy clean surface, it’s a popular choice if you’re looking for dining room and kitchen laminate flooring. As laminate is a wood-based floor, it’s not the best choice for bathrooms, utility rooms, or entrances, because the planks can warp and blister when they come into contact with moisture. That said, if your heart’s set on bathroom laminate flooring
, we’ve got a range of water-resistant laminates with a bit of extra splash protection.
- Tapi Top Tip – Check the room suitability icons on each product page to find out where in your home that particular style of laminate can be used.
There is also plenty of choice when it comes to laminate designs. Wood effect laminate
is a timeless look that will never go out of fashion, and many styles have four bevelled edges to mimic real wooden planks. Our herringbone laminate flooring are very popular designs as they look striking and they’re so much easier to lay than the real wood alternative - not to mention, they have a distinct Parisian interior style
to them! Laminate is generally easier to lay than engineered wood, although herringbone is harder to lay than straight-lay laminate.
The spectrum of laminate colours ranges from white or grey wood laminate flooring for a fresh, Scandi vibe, to dark wood laminate for a sleek, modern finish. Distressed laminate, with all its unique quirks, is ideal if you want to bring a vintage or rustic feel to a room. Our collection of oak laminate flooring comes in a variety of tones, including light, natural, stained, weathered, and dark; some are smooth to the touch, whilst others have registered embossing for a more realistic texture.
