What Rooms Are 8mm Laminate Suitable For?

8mm laminate is a popular flooring choice in homes as it provides ideal stability and is thick enough to compensate for any subfloor imperfections. Let's explore rooms it's suitable for...


Interiors such as conservatories are suitable for 8mm laminate installation. Conservatories, by their very nature, are exposed to the sun. Be sure to choose 8mm laminates that are fade-resistant when installing conservatory flooring.

Dining Rooms

8mm is durable enough to withstand the unfortunate spills that often happen in this area of the home. It will repel stains from minor spills, even up to a couple of days after the event. 8mm Oak and grey laminates are fast becoming the stylish choice in these living spaces.

Loft Conversions

Loft conversions are perfect for 8mm laminate. Try matching the colour of the floor with existing wood features brings a fresh, airy feel to the room.


Bedrooms too can be considered for 8mm laminate. If your bedroom is directly above a sitting room or dining room, consider adding a rug to the bedroom. Noise pollution can be an issue you want to minimise, and a rug will certainly help to do that.

8mm Laminate Flooring Finishes

With this flooring you can create a look very similar to natural timber. Whether you are after a high-end, authentic look or rustic, homely look, you'll find a huge range of effect options. For example:

  • A satin finish is going to give a very subtle shiny finish to the floor. It is not overpowering but does reflect the light
  • A matte finish is possibly the most sought-after effect. Mimicking natural hardwood with a precise wood texture
  • A hand-scraped finish is pressed to look like an authentic hand-scraped wood finish
  • A natural wood finish that looks and feels like natural timber, it's another popular modern choice
  • An oiled wood finish is a traditional finish that replicates untreated floors
  • A high-gloss finish offers a shiny, sleek, upscale finish

You can use a professional fitter to install the floor for you.

8mm Maintenance Advice

Good maintenance means the floor will last longer. Some 8mm laminates feature technologies to repel dust, dirt, and grease. These technologies will reduce the amount of mopping and cleaning you need to carry out. Single strip planks are less prone to picking up dirt and dust than three-strip planks, making them a great low-maintenance option.

What most manufacturers will recommend is a gentle dusting with a microfibre cloth or mop. Avoid overloading the floor with water. Even water-resistant floors respond better to light mopping. Taking good care of your floor will ensure it remains a stunning feature of your home for years to come.
