Laminate: Everything that you should know about this multipurpose flooring
Robust, durable, easy-to-install, high-quality laminate with authentic wood décors will turn your home into a paradise.
If your new apartment is just begging to be renovated and you want to take on the job yourself, you can’t go wrong with a laminate floor. Thanks to modern décors, it is hard to tell laminate and parquet apart. From oak* and maple* to chestnut*, laminate adds the natural glow of wood to your floor. This floor covering is particularly tough and easy to care for. Installing laminate floors is also child’s play. With the help of click laminate, you can become a floor-installation professional with little background knowledge.
Advantages that impress
There are good reasons why laminate is one of the most popular floor coverings. Obviously, the boards are true all-rounders. Anyone who installs laminate can look forward to having a tough floor that has an above-average degree of scratch, abrasion, impact and dent resistance. The chic boards will retain their brilliance even after years of use thanks to their ability to withstand heat and UV light. You can start looking forward to your house-warming party right now. Even the glowing end of a cigarette cannot damage laminate. The easy-to-maintain flooring covering comes in the widest range of décors. The Plank 1-Strip Vintage Oak* will go extremely well with your vintage furniture, while Oak Smoked Heartwood* emits cosy warmth. Perhaps, though, you are more interested in a bright laminate like the décor Oak Dolomiti*. In the end, your personal taste will make the decision for you. But you can be certain that your guests will definitely do a double take before they realise that they are not walking on floors made of real wood.
Laminate is also a real eye-catcher when it is installed on walls.
Our high-quality laminate with the authentic wooden floorboard look not only appears elegant and natural, but is also easy to install. But click laminate should not be installed on a previously laid floor covering. Particularly if you decide to use floating installation, you should remove carpeting before you start work to guarantee an optimal result. Do you live in a rental flat? No problem, because the floor can be removed just as easily as it can be installed.
Our modern laminate floor is even suited for underfloor heating and underfloor cooling. Installation in wet rooms is no problem with the series TRITTY 200 Aqua. Because our click laminate comes with integrated footfall sound insulation as an option, you do not have to do anything else when you install the floor and can look forward to enjoying a truly quiet floor.
What is laminate actually composed of?
Laminate and parquet have different compositions. The top layer of our laminate is made of high-quality plastic instead of wood. Laminate floors consist of a base layer, for which HDF boards are generally used, and a décor layer. The overlay is formed by a specially impregnated layer that lends extra toughness to the laminate. Stabilising balancing laminate and – if selected – an insulation underlay complete the range of layers, which are pressed together through the application of high temperatures and pressure to produce a completed board.
High-quality laminate is characterised by elaborately designed surfaces, among other things. In the process, the grain and structure of real wood are copied. It is something that you can see and feel. The result is an individual board look that is hard to distinguish from real wooden flooring.
As beautiful as real oak, beech and friends.
Laminate floors are not just easy to install and maintain. They also come in a wide range of looks. From bright to dark, from oak* to Italian walnut, the selection of décors is huge. Laminate creates a cosy, inviting look in every room and always feels modern. It is almost as if you were inviting nature into your very home.
Classic laminate Plank 1-Strips or longstrips are hard to distinguish from parquet thanks to elaborate surface treatment. The textured décors look authentically like the surfaces of real wood. If you look closely enough, you will see fine pores and cuts in your new laminate flooring. It is as though you actually installed wooden boards in your home. Of course, we also offer smooth laminate that has a matt, natural look, completely without any structure. No room is the same, and tastes differ. You decide which décor suits you the best. You will definitely find something in our huge range of laminate flooring.
Click laminate is a snap to install
Have you selected a décor and now want to get to work? No problem. Floating installation of laminate with our click system is child’s play. No matter whether you selected the Plank 1-strip or longstrip look, you will be able to start using your new click laminate faster than you think. Before you install your laminate floor, you should make sure that the subfloor is level. As a result, you will have a floor that is slip resistant and quiet while retaining its beauty for years to come. Should you discover an uneven place or two on the subfloor, you simply have to even them out with a levelling paste that creates a level surface all by itself.
During the installation work, the individual elements of the click laminate are connected to one another and not to the subfloor. The important point to remember is that you have to leave enough space between the wall and floor. Distance spacers that you can easily remove once the job is completed will help you here. Without expansion gaps, bulges may develop in the laminate over time. Click laminate is the easiest and fastest way to gain a beautiful floor with décors like the ones you will find only in nature.
More living, less scrubbing
From Plank 1-Strip Oak* to Longstrip in Holm Oak* style, all designs share one quality: they are absolutely easy to care for. Click laminate is antistatic and dirt repellent. You usually just need a broom for your weekly cleaning work. Great. You’ll then have enough time to enjoy the weekend. People with allergies can also breathe easily with laminate. Dust mites do not stand a chance here. Of course, it also makes sense to occasionally damp-clean your new laminate with a flat mop. Special laminate cleaning agents will ensure that your laminate floor is still gleaming even after years of use. As a result, you will be able to enjoy the elegant board look of laminate for a long time.
