Laminate Flooring Texture Advice

Owl Reading

The beauty of laminate flooring is that you can get just about any look that you can imagine (yes, really!); as well as the style of the photographic layer, you also need to choose what texture you would prefer. We have a range of textured laminate for a more realistic look or smooth and high gloss options for a more polished feel.

Textured- If you are looking for a traditional feel, our textured laminate flooring looks the most natural and can be indistinguishable from the real thing. Our textured laminate is available in a variety of texture designs, all with the wood or stone grain visible. This is certainly the best option for you if you have a busy household and own pets as the texturing in the flooring shows dust and dirt much less than its glossy alternatives.

Smooth- Smooth laminate has what we would describe as a 'satin finish', there is no wood grain effect and it has a plain finish which resembles a layer of varnish that you would associate with hardwood. We think this is a soft, subtle option which would compliment any room well. It is also very easy to clean due to its smoothness.

High Gloss- Our high gloss laminate flooring is exactly as it says on the tin, it's glossy, shiny and reflective. This type of laminate is totally smooth, has no texturing, indents or ridges, therefore it will create a very classy and modern look feel in any room, certainly standing out from the rest. We would like to advise that regular cleaning is required with high gloss floors to keep it looking perfect, as you can imagine!
