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.
One of the most important parts of any interior's design is the flooring, and in today's time, it is finally getting the attention that it deserves. New ideas and concepts in flooring are being regularly introduced in the market and homeowners who want their houses to stand out from the rest now have a million options in floor designs to choose from. When it comes to introducing new floor design concepts and ideas, then Amtico can definitely be called the pioneer.
Vinyl is another great idea. Don't confuse vinyl with linoleum like many people do. Compared with other flooring, vinyl is the easiest sheet material to install. Kitchens and bathrooms are the most popular areas for vinyl flooring. Many people choose vinyl in these areas because it's easy to clean. You can find vinyl in prints that look like other floor coverings. It is possible to get vinyl that is printed to look like hardwood floors if you like.
