How to choose the right laminate flooring for your room

Because the variety can be overwhelming, it's best to go room by room and purchase from a flooring expert rather than a regular home improvement store. Continue reading to learn how to choose the best laminate flooring for each room in your home to give it a fresh new look. You'll be surprised at how many different colours, thicknesses, and effects are available to fit every room in your home.


The Hallway

The hallway is the first area to be seen when entering the property and receives the most footfall because it connects all of the main rooms. If you've ever had a carpet in your hallway, you may have noticed that certain spots wear out and become dirty quicker than others. We recommend searching for a durable laminate that's excellent for hallways, seeking AC ratings of 3 or higher, which will give you a strong and resilient floor.

The Living Room

The living room should be a flexible space because it is where you spend the majority of your time with family and friends. It is also the room that will be refurbished the most frequently. At High-Deco-UK, we recommend choosing a light oak laminate flooring. This is because light wood colours can go with any colour scheme, and you can continue upgrading your living room without altering it with this floor.

The Conservatory

If you have a conservatory in your home, you'll need a flooring selection that reflects the natural light that streams in via your roof and windows. Choosing laminate flooring that gives a look of stone rather than wood is a great way to make your conservatory look spacious and cosy. Using a tile motif will keep the conservatory look fresh and Mediterranean all year.

The Dining Room

Dining rooms are great for entertaining your visitor and you can't go wrong with a dark wood effect. Not only does it look like real wood but can be simply wiped clean of any unlucky accidents. Over the years, wood flooring has grown increasingly popular, but it can be difficult to achieve in houses with actual wood furnishings. If this is the case, choose hand-scraped and rustic textures to get near to the natural appearance.

The Bedroom

Because your bedroom is your relaxation space, you should select flooring that matches your personality. Choose a raw wooden finish for a rustic, country chic vibe as it's cost-effective, long-lasting, and simple to install and maintain. 

We also recommend choosing a bright light colour, such as white oak laminate flooring, for a minimalistic and open feel. You may purchase a few pieces to try before you buy to help you visualise how it will look in your room.

The Kitchen

It's more important to think about usefulness and usefulness in the kitchen than it is to think about design. To be suitable for use in both enclosed and open-plan kitchens, laminate flooring for kitchens should be resistant to moisture, be easy to keep clean, and, if possible, have some degree of slip resistance. 

Tile effect laminate flooring is also available, which is a popular style for kitchens. Various brands provide a wide choice of laminate flooring with the appearance of square tiles in stone and marble effects.
