Laminate Flooring – Better Looking Every Year
has come a long way since the 1970s when it was first became popular. Back in the 1970’s it was seen as the cheap alternative to a ‘real’ wooden floor. The timber photos were poor quality, the boards were thin, the floor was easily scratched, damaged, or even broken. When you walked on an old laminate floor it sounded tinny, with a high ‘clicking’ sound that let everyone know what it really was, Well… Things have certainly changed a lot since then!
Today’s digital photography means that the quality and detail of timber images is incredibly accurate, and the boards have a ‘real’ feel to them, thanks to the protective coating process that reads the photo as it is applied. The protective coating means that the laminate floorboards are much harder to scratch or stain, and are either highly water resistant, or waterproof for up to 72 hours. Most laminate flooring is now 12mm thick, so there is no more ‘clicking’ sounds when you walk.
