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.

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.

Each of the flooring styles have their own strengths and benefits. Before you make your purchase, it is important to first ask yourself a few questions. Do you have animals that will be scratching the floors in your home? Does your household have allergies? Is there a particular texture or grain that you are looking for? Are you trying to match or compliment an existing floor in your home? Knowing the answers to these questions will help you to focus and narrow down your search. For example, if you have indoor pets, you may want to stay away from traditional hardwoods. These are easily scratched and require a great deal of care for upkeep.

Knowing your particular needs before placing an order, will help you to not be overwhelmed by the huge selection.
