Each home is different, and each laminate flooring is different as well. What is under your feet will define the sensation created in each room. There are several ways to make your house look good from the ground up; the floor. You may think it is expensive, but you will soon realize it is not. Plus, it is easy to install, clean and more resistant than traditional wood floors.
In this post we will show you the different types of laminate flooring you can find in almost every catalogue.
So let’s get started with some general advice.
For the whole house
Be careful when choosing your laminate flooring. You need to make sure it will complement the colour of your doors and your furniture. But remember, it is not about being the same or having a similar colour; contrast could work too!
For the bedrooms
This is the place where you want to relax, sleep and be comfortable. So you would probably prefer to have light flooring in this room, and in harmony with the rest of furniture. This should be the same for studio or office rooms as well, as you need to focus there. Remember to place the laminate flooring in the same direction as the light comes into the room to create an illusion of a bigger space.
For the living room
The colour for this room depends on how big your living room is. If it is small, you can place light and soft colours in it to “make it look” bigger and lighter. But if the room is big, you should avoid that strategy, or it could create a sensation of a burden. instead of that, choose dark or natural colours which will still provide an elegant feeling.
For the kitchen and bathroom
Yes! You can! Lots of people think that laminate flooring is not suitable for placing in potentially wet rooms. But, nowadays, there are a lot of water resistant laminated floors, Plus, some of them are non skid and antibacterial. So you can get the best conditions for your bathroom with a reduced price, and like always, easy installation. Again, the colours should be chosen in concordance with the size of the bathroom or kitchen, like in the living room. Remember to choose a kitchen floor with really long durability, as it is an intensely used room. And always remove everything you can do easily before installing it so you will get a perfect fitting.
