Are laminate floors water resistant?
All laminate flooring is resistant to spills and splashes, making it ideal for kitchens and bathrooms. Be aware, though, that if you leave puddles to seep in between the boards then your floor can warp over time, so be sure to clean up any splashes as soon as you can.
If you want a really safe option for your bathroom, we recommend the Quickstep Impressive range, which is completely waterproof. It’s also been made to an incredible standard, with an ultra-realistic finish, making it the king of bathroom floors.
Are laminate floors scratch resistant?
Laminate flooring’s tough wear layer is very resistant to scratches and scrapes. There’s no need to worry about daily wear and tear or little feet stomping about. If you do manage to scratch it (which is usually from dragging heavy furniture) you will need a laminate repair kit.
