Oak Laminate Flooring
Whatever your decorating style is, oak laminate flooring is a timeless flooring choice that comes in various different colors and styles. Whether your decorating style is rustic, modern, traditional, or eclectic, there is definitely an oak floor that comes in an lovely color to match. When we mention oak flooring, we are talking about or durable laminate flooring that looks and feels identical to real oak. If you are living in a high-traffic household with lots of children and even pets, laminate flooring should be your top flooring choice.
The beauty of laminate flooring for many homeowners is it’s easy to clean properties. Unlike real wood that can expand, shrink, crack, discolor and even collect mold, laminate flooring provides a fuss-free and low-maintenance solution. It looks exactly like real wood and even has a wood texture that makes most guests do a double-take when coming over! It’s high-density 12 mm fibre board is wear-resistance and can cope with pretty much anything!

The Vintage Pure Black
Looking for a dramatic, chic flooring color? Look no further than sleek, vintage pure black oak laminate flooring. This is one of our favorite flooring colors that we really have a love-hate relationship with. Yes it shows dust more than any other color, but it’s something we are prepared to deal with. You cannot get a sleek, modern, and well-polished look with any other color than black.
Black laminate flooring can be installed from your living room all the way into your kitchen with no worry about water damage or maintenance issues. We have been dying to try the kitchen hardwood-flooring trend, and with laminate it makes it possible! It can make your home look twice the size and create the illusion that your floors run for miles!
The elite vintage black flooring is 12mm thick and is super comfortable which makes most people think that they are walking on real hard wood flooring. It’s thickness also reduces foot noise and is strengthens the joins compared to thinner flooring.
Grey Laminate Flooring
Grey wood flooring is becoming increasingly popular in the interior design world, and it’s a universal color that works with a wide range of different wall colors. Depending on the shade of grey you choose (either dark grey or light grey) you can achieve a series of different ambiences in your home. Whether you are installing it in your home office, living room, or even a child’s nursery, grey laminate flooring is the perfect choice for a modern home.
If you are a fan of experimenting with colors, dark grey wood flooring makes the perfect backdrop for introducing intense bold wall colors such as red and purple. Lighter grey wood flooring works particularly well with lighter colors such as yellow and pink.
White Laminate Flooring
Romantic, timeless, and without a doubt very stylish, white laminate wood floors are becoming a popular trend in 2018. Consider installing white laminate floors in your family room, entryway, or any space that calls for a peaceful and sleek look. I personally enjoy seeing white flooring in apartment living rooms that need flooring that will open up the space and provide as much natural light as possible. White floors actually make natural sunlight bounce off of them, and give your home the illusion that it’s larger and brighter than it really is!
Another bonus for white flooring is the opportunity to experiment with even more decorating color trends. White floors act as a blank canvas and let you tryout various colors, textures, and patterns on furniture and home décor accessories.
Dark Laminate Flooring
If you enjoy opting for a more traditional look, dark laminate flooring makes the perfect choice for your home. For those that don’t like to follow the latest decorating trends and are opting to stick to a more “safe” and timeless look, we would advise you to choose this type of flooring. It is an excellent flooring choice and gives you the natural beauty of real hardwood, and provides a warm and welcoming ambience to your home. There is something about the look of natural wood that gives a rustic elegance that many of our customers enjoy.
