Laminates don’t look like traditional laminates anymore.
With modern designs, updated manufacturing and superior finishes, you will almost need to get down on your hands and knees to tell the difference between a timber floating floor and a modern laminate floating floor.
Well, here is the difference.
The price of laminate is always going to be quite a lot cheaper than a natural product. So in other words, you can get a beautiful timber floor look, without the price tag.
The colour ranges vary from the European Oak species,
including some stunning Oak wash effects, right through to our own Australian species in Brushbox, Blackbutt, Spotted Gum and Red Mahogany.
Scratch Resistance, Low Maintenance
We are always reluctant to call any floor scratch proof, but we can safely say these floors are very scratch resistant. Laminate is the ideal floor for a family room where the kids play, or an office area where the office chair moves regularly. In fact, laminate works great in any room.
We don’t recommend ever using a sander to refurbish a laminate floor, as there is nothing to sand, but chances are you will never need to. Coated with 10 Coates of aluminium oxide that is highly abrasive, scratch, fade and impact resistant, your laminate floor is going to give you many years of trouble free wear.
Acoustic levels are also part of the positive consideration with a floating laminate floor, just as explained in the previous page relating to timber floors.
Versatile and Height Conducive in Almost Any Setting
Produced in 12mm and 8mm thickness, these floors are just as the floating timber floors very height conducive to other products such as carpet, tiles and vinyl.
This fact becomes important also when going around a kitchen, as you don’t want to lose too much height next to your kickboard, nor do you want to raise yourself too high for your benchtop.
