Laminate floors are a great cost-effective alternative to more expensive flooring options such as solid wood and engineered wood and are available in a wide range of colours, thicknesses and styles. You can be sure you'll find something in our huge range that will look perfect in your home.
What is laminate flooring?
A synthetic floor covering made up of many different layers. This type of flooring is made to simulate wood, stone or tiles by using a high resolution photograph under a transparent protective surface layer. A High Density Fibreboard (HDF) core sits beneath the photographic layer to form the main composition of each board and is extremely stable. A final balancing layer is added to the base of each plank which guarantees the boards will not cup or bow when installed.
