Laminate flooring comes in a range of effects, shades and finishes. Here at Carpetright we have a selection of realistic wood and tile effect laminate flooring to choose from. Laminate gives your home the look of expensive real wood or tile floors at an affordable price. It’s made from synthetic fibres which have been pressed and printed with an image of wood grain or tile patterns – don’t confuse this with engineered wood flooring which features a layer of real wood to give an unbeatable impression of solid wood. To learn more, take a look at our Laminate Flooring Buying Guide.
With so many styles and designs to choose from, buying laminate flooring can be difficult. First, consider which room your new flooring is going to be used in; many laminates aren’t suitable for wet conditions, so make sure you check the product description if it’s for a kitchen or bathroom. Next there is the choice of wood effect or tile effect laminate, followed by a choice of different types of wood or tiles, including oak, walnut, ash, chestnut, stone or slate.
