Waterproof laminate really is a thing.

Why waterproof laminate makes kitchen and bathrooms easier to live with and maintain

For anyone who is about to go ahead and start fitting a new kitchen or bathroom, there’s a lot to think about. From product placement to putting shelves and storage in the right place, you need to get through a lot. Add in the need for electrical sockets and appliances to be fitted and installed, and it can be a nightmare. One of the most challenging parts of creating a quality kitchen/bathroom, though, stems from the flooring. With so many choices of flooring, you might not be sure where to start. From luxury vinyl tiles to laminate & tiles, you have many options. However, one great choice today is to go for waterproof laminate flooring.

Why should I choose waterproof laminate flooring?

Laminate looks tremendous, and it almost always goes well with the theme of a kitchen or bathroom. So long as you find a laminate shade that matches the rest of the room, it can work so well. However, kitchens and bathrooms are often victim to water spillage. If you don’t want to wind up with a warped or damaged floor, then waterproof laminate is a great place to go to.

It’s an excellent solution that is not only aesthetically pleasing, but functionally reliable. It’s going to help make sure that you can keep the floor in tip-top condition without having to worry about wetness ruining the aesthetic or damaging the floor.

Does waterproof laminate look natural?

Yes, 100%. Many people will go for a waterproof laminate and not even notice the difference. They are made using high-end materials, ensuring that the joints are perfectly in-step with the shape of the floor. Laminate flooring, when done right, can look exceptional. As long as the manufacturer disclose the laminate is waterproof then you’re good to go!

With high-end waterproof laminate, though, you can make sure it looks brand new and realistic without having to worry about a thing. It’s the ideal choice for those who want a natural looking wooden floor without having to worry about water damage becoming a problem.

Yes, it really is. Quick-Step, for example, have engineered a ‘HydroSeal’ technology that locks using their patented uniclic system making installation a breeze whilst giving you the protection of waterproof laminate. By using a ‘HydroSeal’ coating, the flooring is impervious to water damage. The water isn’t able to get into the laminate itself, meaning that warping and dampness cannot come from within.

Not only does this make said flooring impervious to water damage, but it ensures that it’s a piece of cake to clean. This is just one of the many reasons why you should consider going for a waterproofed laminate flooring option instead.

What looks can I choose from?

Waterproof laminate flooring is available in so many styles today. From a nice soft oak to a classic oak through to oiled walnut and a burned plank look, you can find the look that you think works the best in the bathroom or kitchen you are designing.
