Laminate flooring is an innovative floorboard consisting of a durable print layer glued to a strong particleboard. This enables it to showcase the beauty of timber flooring (or any other design) whilst providing unmatched durability and affordability. Laminate flooring in Sydney has become a popular flooring solution that offers many advantages over traditional timber floors – they look beautiful, perform better, are easier to install and are more affordable.
Laminate floors consist of a textured and coloured print layer that is sandwiched between a protective topcoat and a composite core made of HDF (a mix of melamine resin and fibreboard). The surface is also UV-protected, meaning it maintains its colour and doesn’t fade or stain over time. This top layer wear resistance makes it highly durable, hard-wearing, and ideal for everyday life in family homes.
Laminate flooring has many benefits that make it low maintenance and affordable at the same time:
Yes, laminate flooring is a great option if you’re looking for a stylish, durable, easy-to-install flooring – on a budget! Out of all hard floorings, laminate floors have one of the most scratch-resistant surfaces and are also the cheapest to both supply and install. Benefits of Laminate Flooring:
Like hybrid flooring and vinyl flooring, laminate flooring provides a water resistant surface that comes at a more affordable price than a material like classic oak. Plus, it can come in a nice matte finish if that’s the style you’re looking for.
Laminate floors come at more affordable prices than any other flooring option despite their many advantages, as they are made of recycled wood materials.
The general prices for laminate flooring ranges in NSW Australia in 2023 are given below for your reference.
The price of laminate floors vary depending on the thickness of the flooring, the abrasion resistance (AC Rating), water resistance and branding.

Laminate flooring generally lasts between 10 to 30 years, depending on the manufacturer, the quality of the flooring and how your floors are maintained. It’s always good to get flooring that has a long warranty (20+ years is a rule of thumb) because it signifies quality and ensures that your laminate flooring investment is safe for years to come.

Most high-quality and modern laminate floors definitely add value to a home, just as a real hardwood timber floor will. For most people, they are indistinguishable from real timber or tile floors. Be careful with cheap laminate flooring though, as there will be tradeoffs in quality and design.
Ways of Increasing Property Value with Flooring:
Laminate floors are ideal for bathrooms, dining rooms, living rooms, or anywhere in the house where scratches, stains, or wet areas could be a concern. It’s a high-performance floor that comes with a low price tag.
If you are looking for flooring as a property developer or investor, we have an entire article about increasing property resale value through flooring.
If you want laminate flooring that feels solid and is high quality, go for a thickness of 8mm or 12mm. We recommend a “good thickness” of around 12mm. Thinner laminate flooring is cheaper, but also feels cheaper and is less durable.
Disadvantages of thinner laminate:
Thicker laminate floors are longer lasting and feel more solid, although they are slightly more expensive. For a long-term home, we’d recommend paying the premium for the quality.
Real hardwood flooring has a natural beauty that makes a statement to every visitor but is not nearly as cost-effective. Timber flooring for example offers longevity by allowing sanding and polishing, but must be maintained and requires a much higher initial investment.
Laminate flooring is better used for wet areas, is hard-wearing even though it’s quite affordable, and can look great despite being manufactured.
