Let us start with laminate flooring. There are many different types and most have a wood effect finish but there are ones that mimic ceramic, slate or terracotta and even metals such as copper and brushed aluminium. This is usually installed on a thin piece of foam without nails or glue, which makes installation fairly easy but can create a noisy floor. Laminate floor coverings basically have the following layers:core, laminate and protective foil. The flooring is made from lengths of high density fibreboard (HDF) and they tend to be a locking or tongue and groove versions.
If money is an issue then catch a browse at a number of the reasonable vinyl and peel & stick tiles accessible out there. With an innumerable quantity of customisation possibilities, vinyl is also pretty effortless to settle down in your kitchen floor as well. One of the negatives to vinyl floors is that the sides are able to curl and peel.
More flooring ideas are found in the tile arena. This category alone has seemingly unlimited variety. There are real stone selections as well as man made tiles to choose from. Depending on the look and feel that you want, you may choose a pattern or more of a intentionally random look. Properly placed, either look is beautiful and will add warmth to your home.
