Decorator Trends: Laminate Timber Flooring

Laminate flooring has come a long way over the years. These days, it can be difficult to tell the difference between laminate and genuine timber.

Laminate flooring gets quite a few ticks in the ‘pros’ column. It’s hard-wearing and sturdy. There’s an incredible variety of designs and colours to choose from. It’s an affordable (and no less attractive) alternative to timber. Plus, timber laminate installation can be made a total breeze thanks to DIY-friendly techniques such as Drop-Loc installation.

With so many awesome benefits, it’s easy to see why laminate is becoming increasingly popular in Australian homes.


High Class Style for the Modern Home

Inspired by the natural beauty of Australian timber, Timber Impressions Eucalypt laminate flooring is a stunning and affordable choice for modern homes.

Not only does it look incredible, but it also offers an Abrasion Class 4 rating, meaning your fabulous new floors are protected against commonplace stains and household wear.

The 2260mm long by 238mm wide boards also offer quick and easy installation, so you’ll have your new floor ready in no time. The innovative Drop Loc system (featured in all Timber Impressions flooring) is in fact so easy to install that you can simply do it yourself.

Gorgeous High Gloss

The Timber Impressions Platinum 3 range accurately portrays the look and feel of Australian hardwood species. With its polished, high gloss finish, your new floor will be sure to inspire an envious sparkle in the eyes of your guests.

High gloss flooring can easily open up a room and create a brighter atmosphere as it creates a somewhat reflective surface. Brighten up a dim South-facing room that doesn’t receive much sunlight with warm timber hues, or make a smaller space seem larger.
