I think it’s time to take a fresh look at laminate flooring.
It’s major advantages of course are that it’s quick and fairly easy to install (anyone with moderate DIY skills can do it) and it’s inexpensive. It’s also hard-wearing and if installed correctly, it can look almost as good as the real thing.
And while you’re at it have a look at the laminate flooring at Topps Tiles.
I’m rather partial to the darker tones as seen above. In fact I have similar flooring at home. I think it adds a real warmth to the room and looks great with neutral and paler colour schemes. Looks even more stunning with white!
And I love the sawn effect oak above. Notice the deep skirting boards and remember to always lay the skirting boards on top of the flooring for a really professional look.
And don’t we all dream of white-painted boards on the floor? How many of us have boards in good enough condition and the patience to continually re-paint. Laminate floors could be the answer?
They don’t have to be wood effect either. These slate effect boards are just perfect for a kitchen or bathroom.
