The benefit of laminate flooring as opposed to solid wood flooring is that it will not stain, fade or dent. Laminate flooring is for more resilient to scratches and the surface is water resistant. Choosing the correct laminate flooring for the purpose should be first and foremost in your thoughts. Cheap laminate flooring is ideal for areas were there traffic is minimal such as a bedroom, were quality laminate flooring like Quickstep, Balterio or Licheer, are the ideal choice for high traffic areas such as hallways and living areas.
Laminate flooring comes in various thicknesses, the thicker the core or underside the more hard waring it will be because there is little tendency to warp or chip. Choosing branded laminate flooring ensures that the product you will receive will perform to the highest standard for years to come. If you are considering laminate flooring for a bathroom we would highly recommend a vinyl flooring alternative which looks just as good, but will not have the problems that are associated with installing laminate flooring in high moisture areas.
Solid wood flooring as opposed to laminate is more susceptible to dents, marks and scratches. An alternative to solid wood or laminate is engineering flooring. Also remeber solid wood flooring is more prone to stains purely because wood is porous. Spills and dirt should be wiped down immediately and always using the manufacturers recommendations. Never over wet solid wood when cleaning the floor as the floor will expand as the moisture will penetrate the wood and could cause warping or bevelling.
Things to consider when buying or installing a solid wood floor: Wipe up spills immediately, use doormat's at entrances, use rugs or runners in high traffic areas, NEVER push appliances over the surface always lift, use furniture protector pads to stop any indentations.

Synthetic flooring has come a long way since its conception in the early 1900's. These days vinyl flooring comes in all shapes, sizes, colours and stands up to a myriad of purposes. With major advances in technology, vinyl flooring now can now be designed to look like real wood flooring and stone flooring in sheet and tile formats. The picture on the right is an excellent example by Armstrong, the UK's largest supplier of vinyl flooring who have a catalogue over seven hundred designs and finishes. Vinyl sheet comes multi widths keeping waste to a minimum.
The most popular backing or bottom layer is felt which takes over 90% of the market followed by fibreglass. Felt is used so that the vinyl flooring can be glued, alternatively their is fibre glass which is used to stop curling which means installing the vinyl floor without glue.
