Wood Flooring - FAQ

If your subfloor is nicely levelled and you are looking for a cost-effective solution then pick the 8mm thickness for your hallway, living room or bedroom.
8mm laminate flooring is one of the most popular and affordable choices - this thickness is just enough to overcome any floor imperfections and create a sleek wood flooring look. It provides durability, strength and it's easy to install. It is a great solution for residential spaces like hallways, living rooms, bedrooms or low traffic commercial spaces.
