            Laminate Flooring Buying Guide

            Whether it is a low-maintenance scheme or a budget-friendly design, this laminate flooring buying guide introduces all the options on offer within our laminate flooring and explains how best to use them. It also covers advice on on-trend tones and tips on installation to achieve the right fit and style for any interior or lifestyle.

            What are the benefits of laminate flooring?

            • Durable

              With a hardwearing top coating, laminate floors can stand up to scratches, stains, and regular use, making them a great option for those on the go.
            • Affordable

              The low-cost construction of laminate means it is more affordable than luxe materials, like solid wood, making them a savvy choice for smaller budgets.
            • Wide selection of styles

              Available in a variety of colours, patterns, and textures, laminate floors can easily recreate the look of high-end materials for less.
            • Low maintenance

              Featuring a scratch and stain-resistant surface, laminate floors will continue to look good with little effort, making them practical for busy homes.

              Featuring an angular design that draws the eye, chevron floors have a contemporary look that will add visual interest in a quick and simple way.

            What are the different colours available?
