Manmade FlooringWhen it comes to flooring, it seems man has been responsible for making some stylish, durable, and popular types of floorings that can transform the look of every room in your home. There are a number of different types of man-made flooring available today and here we give you the low down on the main ones – laminate flooring, vinyl/linoleum flooring, and ceramic tile flooring.
Water-resistant, long-lasting and stylish, laminate flooring is one of the most sought after types of flooring in the UK today. Laminate flooring is made up of a high-density base, which has a photograph of wood on top, and is coated with an acrylic lacquer.
There is no real wood in a laminate flooring board but this type of flooring offers many advantages, including being very difficult to stain, scratch, or burn with a cigarette. Laminate flooring can be used in any room in the house but tends to be most popular as bedroom or lounge flooring with a rug over the top for added style and homeliness.
Ceramic tile flooring
Ceramic or porcelain tiles offer an elegant and natural look for kitchens and bathrooms and that is why they are becoming more and more popular as flooring, and not just wall tiles. You can buy ceramic flooring and porcelain tiles in glazed or unglazed designs, and they make good options for rooms in the home that are prone to moisture because they are so easy to wipe clean and dry.
Ceramic tiles are extremely durable and simple to maintain, and can compliment other types of flooring, such as carpet, hardwood, or laminate, so for example you could have one half of your kitchen tiled and the other half carpeted. Ceramic tiles are also available in a range of colours so you can choose ones to match the theme in the room.
Hugely popular as kitchen flooring, or even garage flooring, vinyl flooring also known as linoleum flooring is easy to clean, and is designed to resist scuffing, stains and indents. Although some people think of this as an old fashioned alternative to natural flooring, vinyl is available in a range of styles and colours that offer an elegant, durable and stylish form of flooring, particularly for your kitchen.
Many linoleum flooring and vinyl flooring designs have textured effect to give your room an added dimension as well as offering you a wide range of decorating options to choose from. In addition to these, other man-made flooring you can opt for includes cork flooring and rubber flooring.
