I am SO pleased to share this sponsored post by Luxury Flooring & Furnishings about their gorgeous laminate floor options! Their website is truly addictive. Here at Grandma’s House I had beautiful old hardwoods to work with but, not in every place, and in those cases I really wished I had looked into a laminate floor for its durability especially in my front entryway!

If you’re an avid fan of giving your home a makeover, or simply love a bit of DIY, then you already know that floors are a key element when renovating a house. When it comes to choosing a floor, it’s likely that you’ll be after something practical, durable, but also something that looks good too. On top of that if you are on a tight budget you will want something that suits your budget and, more likely than not, easy to install to avoid any further costs. Well look no further as this post brings the perfect floor for you, introducing Quick-Step laminate flooring!

Laminate floor that is durable, beautiful and will last at least 20 years, a floor every DIY will love to have because they can install it themselves and it comes in every option and look from tile to hardwoods!

What is it?

Quick-Step laminate flooring is a type of laminate flooring, it’s just a certain type of brand. Just like any other type of laminate, it imitates the look of its hardwood counterpart but is much cheaper than the real thing. Again, similar to other brands of laminate, quick step is available in many styles, all similar to real wood species such as oak, chestnut, pine or walnut. It is also waterproof and pretty resistant to scratches. The composition of quick step is the same as standard laminate; it is consists of four layers. The backing is what protects the floor from any moisture seeping through from the subfloor, the core layer offers stability, the image that gives the floor the appearance of wood and finally the wear layer, which is a final protective layer.

Lifespan & Maintenance:

You may be wondering how a floor that is good value can last, well that is one of the amazing features this floor harbors. Once well installed and properly maintained this type of surface can last for up to 20 years! But what do we mean by properly maintained? You see, as laminate flooring one of the easiest floors to care for, it only requires regular sweeping and a weekly mop with warm water. In the event of any spillages you can rest assured knowing that if cleaned straight away the floor will be less likely to stain, or worse, become damaged.

What is ‘Quick Step’?

Quick-Step is basically the name of this type of laminate floor. It is, in fact, manufactured by one of the biggest flooring brands in the world; Belgian-based company Unilin. Now, there is a reason why Quick-Step is favored by DIY lovers. This is because it has a famous ‘Uniclic’ system that allows planks to simply click together and be installed as part of a floating floor. This system also allows the planks to be taken up very quickly, which makes it very easy to replace a plank in the rare case that it becomes damaged. It also means that even the most amateur of DIY-ers will be able to use this system and, as a result, avoid further fees from the likes of calling in specialist floor fitters to install the floor.

The way in which Quick-Step constructs the laminate floor has resulted in an even more durable laminate floor, especially when compared to other types. This is due to the image layer being treated with a protective melamine resin layer which gives it more strength, reducing the risk of scratches. The floor is also given a water resistant overlay and, as a result, means that it is even more waterproof than the likes of other laminate floors on the market. Another great thing about Quick-Step laminate floors is that unlike other types of laminate, this one can actually be used with underfloor heating. Finally, this brand of flooring is available in even more styles, and it doesn’t content itself with wood, it also offers ceramic tile-effect laminate.

We can’t choose for you, but we would happily recommend this floor to any person who is looking to change the floor in their home and wishes to do so independently, without the worry of losing quality or money.

    We have an “engineered” floor similar to this, featuring real wood rather than laminate, but I must say we have been thrilled with it. Original floor in this 200 house long gone, and when we moved in it was thin pine planking (not floor boards) over concrete. Over 15 years, many of the planks warped and as we were giving the room a complete makeover we decided on a new floor too. I’s been down 2 years, looks as good as over (even in the area where we enter and take of our shoes. When mopping the floor – ensure that your mop is really wrung out though. It’s a care-free floor!

      Oh Susan, that is awesome to hear! I love my old wood floors but if I was building new now I really think I would go with an engineered!
