12mm Laminate Flooring Room Suitability
It is the ideal choice for areas in the home that get the most foot traffic, for example, hallways, landings, stairs, and kitchens. This is because 12mm laminate is the top end of laminate thickness. It provides a much softer feel underfoot and better sound absorption. It is designed to soak up sounds, making it perfect for those busy areas of the home.
It can also support more weight and is more impact-resistant than other types of thinner laminate. Thanks to the thickness of this flooring, it's incredibly durable and can withstand the daily pressures of a busy family home.
12mm Laminate Colours and Effects
12mm laminate comes in an array of colours and effects to suit every room in your home. The different effects include oak, walnut, pine, and other wood effects to create the natural look of real wood at just a fraction of the cost. Wood is timeless and works with all colours, furniture, and accessories to create a stylish look.
12mm laminate colour choices include medium, light, and dark tones of wood, white, black and grey. 12mm grey laminate has become one of the favourite neutral colours for interior design. The calming tones of grey will give your home a cosy yet sophisticated and elegant look and it works well with most other colours.
12mm white laminate will give your home a more spacious and open feel. White will complement almost any colour scheme and help give the illusion of a lighter, brighter space.

How to Care for 12mm Laminate
12mm laminate flooring thickness is designed to last for decades and requires minimal maintenance. But while 12mm laminate can withstand a lot, to ensure it keeps looking its best at all times, you will need to give it some occasional TLC.
It is important to clean up any spills and splashes as soon as possible. Regularly vacuum or sweep the floor with a soft broom. Only use a damp cloth or mop to clean the floor as anything wetter could damage your floor as the water may soak into the laminate. Make sure you read our laminate care guide for more care and protection advice.
