What is Laminate Flooring?

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. 

Laminate flooring is far more durable and scratch-resistant than their timber counterparts due to their laminated surface, making it perfect for high-traffic areas of the home or commercial spaces. They are far more scratch-resistant than their timber, oak and bamboo alternatives. Finally, laminate floorboards are also easy to install and require very little maintenance, making them a very cost-effective addition to Sydney homes.

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:

  • Laminate flooring is very durable and has the highest scratch and dent resistance amongst flooring types.
  • Laminate flooring is usually water resistant, up to 72 hours!
  • Laminate flooring uses advanced print and embossing technology which makes it almost indistinguishable from real timber flooring.
  • Laminate flooring is the most affordable flooring option in the market. We have an entire article which breaks down the pros and cons of laminate flooring for you here.

Laminate floors are more affordable than any other flooring option despite its many advantages, as they are made of recycled wood materials.

The general prices for laminate flooring ranges in NSW Australia in 2021 are given below for your reference.

  • Supply laminate flooring: $20 – $50 per square metre
  • Install laminate flooring: $20 – $30 per square metre

The price of laminate floors vary depending on the thickness of the flooring, the abrasion resistance (AC Rating), water resistance and branding. Keep in mind that you get what you pay for as the quality varies a lot between different ranges. You can learn more about laminate floors in our definitive guide to laminate flooring.

At FloorVenue, we are 100% able to beat any quote on the same quality laminate flooring product. See why here.

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.

Factors affecting laminate flooring longevity:

  1. AC Rating – laminate floors are measured by an abrasion coefficient rating graded from one to six, which measures how scratch and dent resistant the surface is. AC 1 – 3 are suitable for residential settings whereas AC 4 – 6 are built for commercial applications.
  2. Thickness – the structural durability of laminate flooring is largely dependent on the thickness of the floorboards. It is recommended that you use laminate floors with a thickness between 8mm – 14mm to be safe.
  3. Water Resistance – the worst enemy of wooden floors is undeniably water. Most laminate floors are water resistant, which can be measured in ‘hours of water resistance’. 24 hours or 48 hours of water resistance should give you peace of mind.

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:

  1. Consistent Flooring – Avoid mixing the type of flooring between different areas of the home. Properties with consistent flooring are valued much higher than those with mix and matching flooring.
  2. Avoid Carpeting – Although they are great for bedrooms, carpeting has fallen in popularity over recent years due to it’s difficult maintenance and allergic reactions from dust. Hard flooring like timber and tiles have become the more ‘prestigious’ floor covering.
  3. Consider Solid Timber – Research which suggests that the installing hardwood flooring has a return on investment between 70% to 80% according to Realtor. Additionally, home remodelling expert Alex Biyevetskiy claims that hardwood flooring increases the resale value of housing by 2.5% when done right.

If you are looking for flooring as a property developer or investor, we have an entire article all about increasing property resale value through flooring.

If you want laminate flooring that feels solid and is high quality, go for a thickness of 10mm or 12mm. We recommend a “good thickness” of around 12.3mm. Thinner laminate flooring is cheaper, but also feels cheaper and is less durable.

Disadvantages of thinner laminate:

  • Thinner laminate flooring has less tolerance for uneven subfloors and may even crack in their edges over time.
  • Thinner laminate flooring is less structurally sound, which is evident in their shortened warranty periods.

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.
