What exactly is laminate flooring?
Laminate flooring is a synthetic plank that has been developed and constructed to look like wooden flooring or ceramic tiles. The synthetic layers usually consist of a strong core (made from high density fibre board) to give stability and structure. This is then topped with a high-resolution photograph of the desire floor (wood, stone bamboo, etc). Finally, a transparent protective top layer is added.
Depending on the quality of laminate you choose, you may get a scratch and stain resistant surface too, which makes it so much easier to look after. Some types are even waterproof, making them a great choice for bathrooms.
You will notice that laminate flooring is considerably easy to install. It is very popular with DIYers. You can easily click the planks together over an underlay, without the need for specialist tools or equipment.
