Laminate is suitable for all rooms of the house, from practical bathrooms to trendy living rooms. However, since they are scratch resistant, durable and easy to clean, laminate floors are particularly well suited to high traffic rooms.
WHAT LOOK OF TILED FLOOR TO OPT FOR?
If you want to pull off a contemporary style, a laminate floor with very distinct edges where the joins emulate the cement between stone effect laminate tiles will help you achieve the crisp, clean lines that put interior décor on the cutting edge of modernity.
Alternatively, you could opt for smart seamless designs that vinyl offers, classic square tile effect, overlapping patterns and flooring with ‘tiles’ in different sizes – there’s plenty of choice.
