All the laminate flooring services you need in one place.
If you are looking for laminate flooring, Dave Judge Flooring provides a range of options ideal for your home. Here are a few factors to consider when deciding on the flooring you want.
Laminate flooring has a number of advantages. One major one is that it is quicker to install than traditional wooden surfaces, while the manufacturing process allows for each individual plank that can be designed to a more consistent size.
It is often used in kitchens or bathrooms, due to the fact it doesn’t absorb moisture as much as a wooden surface. Furthermore it is also scratch and water resistant.
It is also more hygienic and is easier to clean, allowing for a lower maintenance room, so something worth considering if you want to cut down on cleaning time.
One major aspect to think about is how thick you want your laminate flooring to me. Thicker laminate has a more traditional wooden feel, while if the surface is deeper it allows for more detailed etching on the surface. There is also the added benefit of reduced room echo with a thicker width.
Typically, the floor’s thickness will be manufactured between 6 to 12mm. 10 to 12mm is the most durable while 7 to 8mm is often used for subfloors (provided it is level).
There is also the issue of affordability- a thicker flooring will be more expensive than a thinner one, so it will depend on what your budget is.
Laminate flooring offers distinct styles based on the kind of material you use. For example, walnut is often ideal for people who want a more natural look for their surface. Another alternative is to use stone texture or grey laminate.
Grey laminate in particular has become more popular recently as it has allowed for a natural tone that can blend in with a wide array of interior decorating styles.
In previous times, people have been concerned that laminate flooring looks less natural compared to a wooden surface. However in recent years there have been increasingly natural looking surfaces that can rival a traditional wooden floor.
A major advantage of laminate flooring is that it is more cost effective than using natural wood flooring. You also get a range of colours in both lighter and darker shades, so you can tailor the surface to your interior décor.
This can mean that a lighter shade can be used in lower traffic areas such as the bedroom, while a darker shade is better suited to higher traffic areas such as the hallway. With the right approach, you can create a floor that takes full advantage of the light in the room and give it a more comfortable feeling.
