The Best Kitchen Laminate Effects for Kitchens
Tile is one of the most popular kitchen laminate effects, as it closely resembles real tiles. Our high-quality laminate flooring for kitchens has a premium and luxurious appearance, making it suitable for both traditional and contemporary kitchen styles. This effect is versatile and allows you to achieve a tiled look without the associated cost and installation time.
In addition to tile, oak is also a popular choice for kitchen laminate flooring. There are a variety of oak effects available, including light and dark finishes. Oak is bright, light, and comes in various colours, making it an ideal choice to complement your kitchen's design and appliances. Whatever your kitchen style, you are likely to find an oak effect that will enhance the overall look.
What are the benefits of Kitchen Laminate Flooring?
Laminate flooring is an ideal option for the kitchen for several reasons:
Although laminate flooring is typically categorised as water-resistant, Quickstep's Impressive, Majestic, Eligna, Signature and Classic ranges have introduced fully waterproof laminate flooring. However, all laminate flooring can weather spilt drinks and splashes, amongst any other kitchen mishaps. The top layer of laminate is spill-proof so long as the subfloor is properly prepared and the edges are sealed in order to prevent moisture from seeping in and causing damage to the underlying layers of the floor.
Our kitchen laminate flooring is very durable, making it perfect for high-traffic areas. It's extremely strong and can withstand a significant amount of foot traffic including children and pets running around which is only to be expected in a busy, family kitchen. This is all thanks to its strong top layer, which is scratch and stain resistant.
Kitchen laminate floors come in a wide range of styles, colours and effects including oak, walnut and pine. Plus, high-quality kitchen laminate flooring is less likely to change colour when faced with a large amount of direct sunlight in the same way that some hardwood floors do . This is key when choosing kitchen flooring, as kitchens are generally light and bright areas of the home.
How Easy Is Laminate To Install in the Kitchen?
Based on the size of your kitchen, installing laminate flooring can be a simple and straightforward process. To install laminate flooring, you should first prepare the subfloor by ensuring it is clean, level, and dry. Acclimatise the laminate planks for 48 hours before installation. Lay down foam underlay and plan the layout. Measure and cut the planks to fit the layout and interlock the tongue and groove edges as you lay them. Use spacers to maintain the expansion gap and trim the last row of planks to fit. Install baseboards and other trim pieces to cover the gap, and remove spacers and clean up debris.
