Designed to be affordable and durable, laminate flooring is filled with aluminium oxide which helps resist scratches from daily wear, creates an easy-to-clean surface, and maintains a fade and stain resistant appearance. Good quality laminate is tough, resistant to wear and with regards to design the choices are endless.

Laminate flooring is available in many types of textures and finishes to simulate the look of real hardwood flooring, from high gloss that features a mirror finish and resists scratches and dents to hand scraped laminate that has the look and feel of a hand finished hard wood floor. Laminate flooring comes in endless shades and finishes so what ever your colour scheme or design of your bathroom it is simple to find a floor to suit you.

Laminate tends to be very reasonably priced, perfect if you’re on a strict budget. You don’t even have to stick to a wooden look as some laminates imitate stone or slate. The trick is to go for good-quality boards to avoid that “fake” look. Laminate is also a function-friendly solution for bathrooms where moisture and real wood don't mix well. Look for laminates with embossed textures that simulate the grain or texture of natural materials like wood and marble.
