Waterproof Laminate Flooring

Wednesday, 30 August 2017


Laminate is build-up out of layers of different materials. Among other things, HDF or MDF is often used and the top layer is a coating of printed-paper with the design. This top layer makes it unsuitable for wet or moist rooms. Cleaning should always be done with as little water as possible, and the floor therefore should definitely not be used in bathrooms or kitchens. However, did you know that there is waterproof laminate flooring? This laminate is excellent bathroom flooring.

The companies offering these kind of laminate flooring are Berry Alloc and Quick-step. They both have a collection that has a special water repellent layer. This layer ensures that water cannot penetrate into the floor. It is therefore the ideal solution for your bathroom, kitchen, and laundry room. It does not mean that this flooring is dull or plain; on the contrary, the floors have beautiful wooden designs in different colours. They are also suitable for the rest of your house.


Berry Alloc

Berry Alloc Riviera is available from a Scandinavian white colour, to darker colours like Rialto with a black mat look. In addition, a laminate floor that looks very similar to a teak wood colour is a beautiful addition in this versatile collection. Not only are the colours in this collection varied, but the Roma design adds yet another touch of variation. It resembles a parquet floor by giving the impression of many small planks on one plank. Berry Alloc Riviera waterproof laminate flooring is available in 20 colours. Have a look at them in our online shop!



Quick-Step has two collections that are water resistant. These are the Quick-Step Impressive and Quick-Step Impressive Ultra collections. Both of these have the same 16 designs, but the difference between the Ultra and the normal is the thickness of a plank. The Ultra variant is 12 mm thick and the normal variant is 8 mm thick. As a result, the Ultra is a better choice for heavy traffic. The wear class is therefore 32 for the normal and 33 for the Ultra variant. Although Quick-Step has fewer available colours, they still have a lot of variety. These collections are also in the design of clear white flooring, a design with a black "burned" look and various attractive shades in between.
