Conservatory Laminate Floors

Laminate Floors

Laminate flooring comes in two forms...

Laminate flooring is a very popular choice for many rooms on the downstairs level of a house, including a conservatory. It comes in two main forms – one variation has boards which need to be glued together, while the other type has tongue and groove boards which click together and need no glue to hold them in place. These are more expensive but are much easier to fit – making them an ideal choice if you are fitting them yourself.

Benefits of Laminate Floors

A a cheaper alternative to a real wooden floor...

The reason we chose a maple-look laminate floor was because we wanted a wood effect but also wanted to keep the cost down...

Laminate flooring has made huge advances over the last few years, and the designs at the upper end of the market are so realistic that it’s often hard to tell they’re not actually real wooden boards at all without looking close up. As such they can provide a cheaper alternative to a real wooden floor, without the hassle of having to stain or treat it on a regular basis. They are also extremely easy to keep clean – stains or spills can easily be wiped up and regular sweeping or vacuuming keeps them looking as good as new.

Laminate Flooring Types

Ideal floor to lay if you are going to do it yourself...

Laminate flooring also comes in a wide range of finishes – from the lighter shades of maple and birch, to much darker and richer shades including oak and the warmer shades of beech. Whatever colour scheme you have in mind you’re sure to find a long lasting laminate floor to complement it perfectly. It’s also an ideal floor to lay if you are going to do it yourself. Just remember to buy slightly more than you need in order to make up for the off-cuts you will lose as you cut the planks to fit.

  • Low Cost.
  • Varied Styles.
  • Waterproof

If you go for a cheaper brand of laminate flooring, you may find the edges start to chip and peel away over time, especially if the area experiences a lot of foot traffic. Laminate floors can be quite cold, so make sure you install adequate heating to make up for it – ideally under floor heating as well.
