How to Choose a Laminate Flooring Matching Your Home Interior

Laminate flooring is popular, modern and also an economic option when flooring Newcastle homes, and homes in the Belmont area. You can create many amazing looks with laminate, mimicking the appearance of hardwood, stone, tiling and more.  When you are choosing your laminate, consider the following to match it to your home interior:

Environment and Temperature Factors when Flooring Belmont and Newcastle Homes

Consider the moisture and temperature in the room that you are flooring. Bathrooms are generally not suitable for laminate flooring due to the excess moisture in the room.


No glue laminate flooring requires very little care. Our quality laminate flooring not only looks terrific, it is durable and easy to clean and care for.

What Are You Installing the Laminate Over?

Laminate can be installed over most clean and dry surfaces. It is very important that the area to be installed is level. The tolerance of most of the quality laminates that we sell is 2-3mm height variation across 1 meter of floor area (please refer to the specific variation specified for your laminate). Newcastle Carpet and Flooring can provide guaranteed floor leveling if you would like us to professionally install your floor.

Floor Traffic

When choosing laminate flooring Newcastle residents need to consider how much traffic the floor will receive when it is laminated. More resistant laminate will be required in higher traffic areas such as hallways and walkways.

Your Existing Décor

When selecting from our range of high-quality laminate flooring, match colors and tones to your existing décor. Laminates in a wood look appear real and the joints are not noticeable. Our laminates have a quality authentic look and feel and come in a range of modern designs.

Laminate Shade Selection

Consider the lighting and furniture in your room when selecting one of our superior flooring laminates. Light colors will give the illusion of more space. Balance out the room tones with your furniture tones. If you have dark wintery shades of furniture a lighter tone will enhance the room. If your room is very light darker shades can look great.

Style of the Room

The color, style, and pattern need to match your home’s style. We have a range of timber and terra mater styles in light and dark eye-catching tones, in various modern and striking designs that will complement the unique style of your home.

Laminate is easy to care, easy clean, modern and aesthetic and a popular choice in today’s homes. Installation of the laminate is a simple process. We provide quality laminate flooring Newcastle and surrounding areas, as well as a full installation service. Contact us for more information.
