If you’re looking for a timber floor, but your budget won’t stretch for it, consider a laminate floor with a timber look. With today’s technologies, laminate floors are made to look like exactly like real timber and they offer the same stain, the same graining – and even the same texture!
Understanding the laminate flooring styles:
1 Strip Laminate
Made to simulate a traditional floorboard, 1 Strip boards are available in a wide range of lengths, widths and colours. As a general rule, longer and wider boards will tend to look more authentic and offer a more stylish look in larger rooms or spaces.
2 Strip Laminate
Offers a narrower and shorter timber styling. 2 Strip laminates are often used in smaller spaces to provide a more functional appeal.
3 Strip Laminate
3 Strip products offer a more traditional styling and are often seen where planks with wider internal colour variation will help to set the mood.
