Laminate Flooring

Laminate flooring is extremely popular; this is because it’s affordable, hard-wearing, can be installed with ease, and can be customised in a diverse range of colours. Laminate floors are intricately made using big sheets of MDF or HDF (high-density fibreboard), and they have a decorative paper layer bonded on top. This paper is subsequently toughened and protected by pressure, bonding a clear lamination to the surface. Every sheet is cut into smaller planks, and these planks are machined with a profile on all 4 sides to allow them to be clicked together without glue.

Engineered Flooring

Engineered flooring is renowned for being practical and authentic in terms of aesthetic and feel. These types of floors are ingeniously constructed with innovation in mind, giving added strength to stop the movement of the wood. As a result, engineered wood flooring is more versatile, and can come in a wide range of widths and lengths. If you would like your engineered floor to last longer and be sanded more, then you should opt for a thicker top layer. To explore Canadia’s sublime engineered flooring options, click here.

Solid Flooring

Solid flooring, also commonly referred to as hardwood, is the original timber floor. As the name suggests, a solid wood floor features one single piece of solid wood from top to bottom. Usually, this is finished with oil or lacquer, and comes with tongue and groove edges. Solid wood flooring can be bought in a variety of styles ranging from the Austin Tumbled Wood Block to the Denver Tumbled Wood Block. Above all, solid flooring is beautiful, and comes full of character and uniqueness. It upgrades and improves any space it’s installed in, adding style and sophistication.
