Why Choose A Laminate Floor?

Why choose a laminate floor?

Laminate should not be compared to wood as better or worse, it should also not be thought of as inferior, 

it is a different product with its own qualities. The two main differences are that wood is most likely to be a lifelong product,

whereas a laminate floor will look newer for longer but will ultimately need to be replaced in time. If cared for correctly a good quality laminate has the potential to still look new for up to 20 years and is a good choice for your home if you are looking for something a little more hardwearing and don’t want to break the bank. 

What Are The Benefits Of Laminate Flooring?

Laminate flooring is a multi – layered synthetic product fused together by a lamination process and is created to look like wood floors or other natural substances such as stone or marble with a photographic appliqué layer under a clear protective layer.

With the recent leaps in technology giving us an extra level of realism and authenticity,

and the choices of beautiful patterns and colours we can have both beauty and resilience.

Regardless of the robustness of a laminate floor it still needs a good cleaning practice. We should be mindful that wood and water don’t mix well and if you have underfloor heating you should turn it off as it will cause your floor to dry too quickly and cause streaks.

Steam cleaners should be avoided too! – as heat and water may cause long term damage in the boards.

Try to avoid using soap or vinegar based cleaners as they can dull your floors finish. We would advise a light mist of laminate floor cleaner.

So in a nutshell a good quality laminate floor is durable, versatile, resilient, attractive, and great value.

Which Brands Can You Choose From?







Berry Alloc Chateau


Jo, Paul, Nick and team were impeccable from start to finish. We experienced a few hiccups initially due to no fault of ours, or theirs (bad workmanship in a job we had done to the floor previously), however the team dealt with everything with professionalism, giving us lots of support, and definitely made a tough job look easy.

It even meant they had to compromise themselves a little along the way, and for this we are very grateful. They are all genuinely lovely people and couldn’t do enough for us.

We trusted them implicitly throughout with both their thoughts and ideas, and with the keys to our house. The floor speaks for itself in the quality and finish; it is absolutely outstanding. No words can describe how happy we are with how it looks. We couldn’t have wished for a nicer or better company to make our first house feel like our dream home.

This company deserves every bit of custom it gets and we can’t recommend it enough. Thank you for everything!

You have done a fabulous job and I can’t thank you enough. I hope everyone brings their slippers from now on… don’t want to spoil!
