Laminate Room Suitability
Laminate flooring is perfect for any living space in the house. It can resist the every day wear and tear and works well with the low moisture levels of a living space, not to mention you get to have the stunning look of real wood or tiles.
Laminate is ideal for the kitchen. It can withstand the everyday splashes and it's tough enough to resist scratches. We have both tile and wood effect to choose from, so you can select the perfect laminate for your kitchen.
Quickstep have invented waterproof laminate floors that are perfect for the bathroom. All of these floors still look and feel like real wood, but with the perks of a waterproof laminate. Feel free to splash around without having to worry about the floor!
We all know how much the temperature in the conservatory can change, but laminate floors have a high level of resistance to changes in temperature so are an excellent choice. The locking installation method also means it's pretty straightforward to lift up the boards if you ever need to.
Laminate is perfectly suitable for use with underfloor heating systems, regarding you use the correct underlay. If you're going for a Quickstep floor, we would recommend using the Quickstep Silent Walk Underlay. If you're using one of our other laminate brands, we would advise using the Quicktherm Vapour Underlay. These both will help to get the most out of your underfloor heating whilst still protecting your floor.
Down to the clever construction of the laminate boards you can lay them in basements without any issues! It's key to remember that most basement floors are concrete, so you will require a Damp-Proof Membrane (DPM) in between the concrete and the laminate.
Laminate floors are stable and grippy enough to avoid any potential accidents, so are perfect for the stairs. It's also good to remember stair noses are required to get a seamless finish on the stairs, so make sure you purchase your matching stair nose along with your new floor.
