Unfortunately laminate can sometimes have a bit of a bad reputation.

Too many DIY stores sell cheap laminate which customers fit themselves (often badly). This has led to some rather dodgy looking floors and a general thought that laminate is a poor choice.

Well, let us show you why this is most definitely not the case.  In recent years laminate has improved hugely in design, durability and the overall appearance. Many of the wood designs are now almost indistinguishable from the originals. The extra tough overlay containing melamine means that it’s resistant to scratches, burns and stiletto heels… something that wood is not.

Laminate in kitchen/dinerThe owners of this beautiful kitchen/diner knew that they wanted a contemporary modern floor to complete the open plan space which leads on from the lounge.  To emphasise the space, our clients also requested a wide plank which led us straight to Haro’s Gran Via board. It’s large size plank design comes in an impressive 243mm width and 2200mm length.  It’s available in a huge range of  oak styles from dark vintage oak, greys and the light sand which is what was chosen for this space.

Without doubt there are still plenty of places that sell cheap laminate boards but company’s such as Haro & Balterio are really upping their game and giving customer’s endless choice.

The look is good, the durability is great and it’s more affordable than wood, so don’t less the DIY stores put you off laminate…. it’s just getting better and better.
