Why Choose Tile Effect Laminate Flooring

Laminate flooring has been on the scene for a long time now. It’s proven to be a fantastic substitute for real wood floors and carpets, due to being cost-effective and extremely durable. However, did you know there is an extensive selection of tile effect laminate flooring?

The natural look of stone is one of the most desirable looks around. Many homes all over the world opt for the ceramic look, as not only are they attractive but they have fantastic natural cooling properties. Unfortunately, not all of us live in a climate that requires a natural cooling compound. Most properties in the UK only utilise ceramic tiles in kitchens and in bathrooms and many combine these tiles with some form of underfloor heating, this can them become expensive. Natural stone, slate and marble are on the high end of the price chart. When you then throw in the installation, it starts to make a serious impact on your bank balance. One of the main reasons ceramics are popular in bathroom and kitchens is due to the waterproof properties. When investing in flooring you want confidence that when you spill a drink or forget to put bath mat down, the floor underneath you is not going to ruin. 


Tile Effect Laminate Flooring 

Tile effect laminate flooring is an outstanding alternative to ceramics and natural stone. Not only are they more affordable but the designs are so good, it’s hard to tell the difference. Due to cost-effectiveness of tile laminate floors, may opt to have the stone look throughout their home. Areas such as living rooms can look fantastic with this natural stone effect. Like real ceramics tiles, tile effect laminate flooring is compatible with underfloor heating, they are also suitable to install in kitchen and some tile effect laminate floors are guaranteed in bathrooms.

The designs in tile effect laminate flooring are incredible. The Quickstep Exquisa Ceramic light has the most amazing embossed surface, meaning the floor feels exactly how it looks over this multi-pattern design. Some of the laminate tiles come with genuine bevel edges, like the Egger Pro Aqua Kingsize. Having these bevels and stone textured surface gives these laminate tiles the appearance of a high end, stone floor. 

Installation is simple with tile effect laminate flooring. Each product comes with locking systems allowing you to utilise the floating floor method. This means, no glue, no grout and no mess. For more detail, please see our guides on how to fit laminate flooring.

We hope that when considering a new floor and a stone look is a possibility, you may consider the benefits and value of a tile effect laminate floor.
