Looking to revamp your home & budget is key.....

Laminate flooring is not wood, it consists of man-made materials hence why it doesn’t carry a heavy price tag. Laminate flooring has improved in terms of designs and durability over recent years and there are many laminate floors which have a real- wood effect, including knots and variation you would find in wood itself.

When looking at laminate options, the prices will vary, depending on the thickness of the board and its AC Rating.

Take Note of:

  • An 8MM board will be cheaper than a 12MM board, however our 8MM board consists of many of the key features you would find in a 12mm board. The AC 4 rating measures a floor’s ability to resist abrasion. For instance, our 8MM range have an AC 4 Rating making them suitable for heavy domestic trafficked areas. As our 8MM laminates are of high quality, this makes them equally as suitable as a 12mm floor to fit in your home.
  • The finish on a laminated floor is another important element. The finishes available include an EIR finish, which gives the texture of the board a real wood feel. A matt finish gives your floor a realistic matt look.
  • When choosing a laminate floor, you will also want your floor to have a 4V bevel. The bevel outlines the edges of the board which distinguishes the floor, giving it added definition and appeal.
  • Laminates with a click system are also a beneficial purchase, such laminates will have a UNICLIC or Megaloc system which allows for easy installation, therefore also cheaper to install.

The good news is all our laminates have the above features in place; a click system, a textured finish, along with our regular sized laminates having a 4V bevel. Have a look at our wide range of laminate options available here>
