Available in a huge range of wood and stone looks, laminate flooring uses beautifully detailed printed decors and a textured resin surface to recreate the look of the natural material. Modern laminate floors offer impressive authenticity while remaining a highly practical floor that is incredibly easy to care for and utilising a click system makes for a quick hassle free installation, perfect for a quick transformation of any room.
Laminate flooring is still one of the most popular forms of hard floor around, due to many fundamental factors. One of the main reasons is that it is generally DIY friendly flooring, it clicks together effortlessly and becomes a glue-less floor, making it easy even for the worst home improvement person. Another reason is that Laminate floors are excellent value for money. Being generally a lot cheaper than solid or engineered wood, but being more practical, makes a lot of home owners switch their attention to this type of product as it falls within budget as well as being more durable.
At Applewood furniture, we sell a variety of quality laminate flooring nationwide. Unfortunately there is a lot of people out there selling cheap laminate, we admit our laminate isn’t the cheapest, but it is certainly the best value and quality.
The problem with cheap laminate flooring, is that the locking click system they use, generally is of a poor quality, this means as well as being harder to install, the joint doesn’t lock tight enough together. This can cause moisture ingress into the laminate core making it swell as well as making the corners more prone to chipping, resulting in your laminate flooring looking cheap, worn out and tired a lot quicker than a good quality laminate floor.
One of our specialities here at Applewood furniture is waterproof laminate flooring. Solving the old problem of having a floor that is affected by moisture. What waterproof laminate does or click vinyl flooring as its also known as these days, is gives you peace of mind if you have modern day problems such as over exuberant children splashing water on the floor from the bath, or messy dogs who tip over the water bowl. Because no matter how wet our waterproof laminate flooring gets, it will not be affected by any amount of water. Being 100% waterproof, means it is of course made from a PVC or plastic core, unlike traditional quality laminate floors, which are made of HDF that is not suitable for areas of moisture such as bathroom flooring. This core is slightly more expensive to produce than HDF products, but it offers a 100% assurance. Our selection of waterproof laminate floors are available at the lowest prices around as we buy direct as well as buying a lot of clearance lines from the manufacturers, passing on the savings directly to you.
Real Wooden Floor
With the quality laminate flooring provided by Applewood furniture, one may easily mistake our laminate flooring for a real wooden floor. However, it is important to point out that laminate flooring does not contain any real wood at all. Each plank is made up of various synthetic layers and topped with a photograph of the desired design whether it be wood, stone, etc. The surface layer can sometimes have a built-in scratch guard for added protection. The top surface of the floor is water resistant so can cope with the occasional spill or splash.
