Black Laminate Flooring Room Suitability
Black gloss laminate flooring can make a stylish addition to any room or area of the home. It is suitable for rooms including:
Kitchen and Bathroom
Black laminate is a durable and hardwearing flooring choice suitable for kitchens and bathrooms. If installing in wet areas make sure you choose a waterproof option.
Black laminate flooring is a great way to add sophistication to your living room. Offset the dark colour with simple accessories and a light colour palette for a minimal look, or use bold colours to add drama to your living space.
If you are looking for a quick way to transform the look of your conservatory, black laminate flooring is perfect. Laminate is resistant to any changes in temperature, and it's simple to lay.
Black laminate flooring works well with underflooring heating systems. With the correct underlay, you'll be able to get the most out of your underfloor heating while enjoying your beautiful flooring.
How to Style Black Laminate Flooring
Installing black laminate flooring with light walls and ceilings can make the room feel much larger, and the deeper tones give warmth to the space. Alternatively, combine black laminate flooring with bold colours to add drama and energy to the room. Several colours complement a laminate floor in black, for example:
Dark Navy, Blue and Green
Darker hues can add drama to a room when used sparingly. Experimenting with dark colours on accent walls can create a dramatic effect.
Green, with grey or blue undertones, can work wonderfully with black laminate flooring. Green is often used to create harmony and balance and renew our connection to nature. Consider opting for forest green or sage green combined with dark flooring.
Grey, with undertones of taupe, blue, beige, or green, works extremely well with black flooring and will enhance the colour of your new black laminate flooring.
White décor, accessories, and furniture perfectly compliment black laminate flooring. The contrast between the two colours creates a very modern, minimal look and feel to a room. While there are several shades of white, avoid those with pink or yellow undertones and opt for a white that has grey undertones instead.
Blue is a relaxing and calming colour, and it contrasts very well with the dark tones of black laminate flooring. While light blue is often chosen for living spaces such as living rooms and hallways, rich, dark blues are also popular, along with black gloss laminate flooring, especially in bedrooms.
Caring For Black Laminate Flooring
Black laminate flooring is highly durable and can withstand a lot of wear and tear. However, it does require regular cleaning, especially as it can be prone to marking and tends to show scratches more than lighter coloured laminate finishes.
To maintain your black laminate flooring and keep it looking its best, you must clean up any spills immediately to avoid warping or staining the laminate. You should regularly vacuum or gently sweep the laminate to remove dust and debris that could mark and scratch the laminate. Then use a slightly damp mop or soft cloth with a very small amount of mild detergent to clean the floor, and then dry the laminate thoroughly with a soft cloth.
Make sure you only use cleaning products that are suitable for laminate floors. Never saturate the floor or use products that could damage the floor's protective layer, such as steel wool, wax, or abrasive cleaners. You should also avoid using a steam cleaner on your laminate floor as it can cause the laminate to loosen, peel or warp.
