Additions to Contemplate For Your Wooden Laminate Flooring


If you were looking for a flooring solution that will be similar to wood without the high price tag associated with timber flooring, then wooden laminate flooring would be an ideal choice. This type of flooring is easy to install since it does not require any glue to adhere onto the floor. Instead, the flooring contractors will simply click the floorboards in place. However, if you would like to make the most of your wooden laminate flooring, you should consider investing in some additions for it. These additions enhance the overall aesthetic appeal of the flooring. Moreover, the accessories prolong the lifespan of your wooden laminate flooring. Here are some of the additions that you could contemplate when opting for wooden laminate flooring.

Skirtings and mouldings for your wooden laminate flooring

Once you have your wooden laminate flooring installed, you may find that there are some irregular gaps created either around the flooring or between the boards. If left unchecked, these could affect the overall aesthetics of your flooring. The good news is that you do not have to resort to covering your flooring up with carpet to camouflage them. Instead, you can opt for skirtings and mouldings. These are decorative accessories that will hide any unwanted gaps that may be visible between the laminate flooring and the wall or where the laminate flooring meets the base of stairs.

Transitions bars for your wooden laminate flooring

If you have wooden laminate flooring in one room and tiles in another room, chances are, there will be a stark difference between the two surfaces. Instead of making the change between flooring appear abrupt, you could opt for transition bars for your wooden laminate flooring. These bars are used to seamlessly connect different types of surfaces. You can even take it a step further and invest in pipe collars work toward covering any gaps that may form between the transition pipes and the flooring. 

Floor protectors for your wooden laminate flooring

Just like other types of timber flooring, wooden laminate flooring is not exempt to scratches if not handled with care. As such, it would be prudent to take measure to protect your flooring so as to ensure that it stays in pristine condition for as long as possible. One of the easiest ways of doing this is through floor protectors. These protectors are attached right at the bottom of the furniture that is in the room. Thus, when the furniture is moved around, it will not scrape the floors surface and cause unsightly scratches.

Choosing the Right Type of Flooring

Welcome to my blog, my name is Kate. My parents lived in a very old home which still had its original flooring. I loved the pattern of the Victorian bathroom floor tiles, the glow of the timber wood, and the smooth ceramic kitchen floor. I would spend many hours sitting on the floors, feeling the surface as I played with my toys. When I bought my own home, the first thing I installed was new flooring to re-create the wonder of my childhood. I have decided to start this blog to pass on my passion for flooring with the rest of the world.
