All you need to know about Laminate Flooring in Doncaster

At Floor Coverings Local, home of Laminate Flooring in Doncaster, we know this makes a great choice whatever your circumstances, such as a busy family or living on your own. However, like any other flooring types, it can have its negatives as well.


We’re here to go through what makes laminate great and its draw backs – like anything, nothing is perfect.

Your Need to Know about… Durability

Laminate Flooring will last for many years after installation, and can be perfect for any room such as the Living Room and Hallway that have the most foot traffic.

Its also resistant to scratches and spillages, although we recommend that you clean up any spillages as soon as possible to avoid stains on the hard wood.

However, damage can be sanded away and the floor refinished. So, despite laminate having impressive durability, it is worth considering this when you’re deciding where to lay it. 

Your Need to Know about… the cost

One of the most attractive features of laminate flooring is its affordability. This makes it great for those who are on a budget and first-time buyer who need a cheap fix but without sacrificing style and durability.

However, like anything at a cheaper price it doesn’t tend to last as long as the more expensive options such as solid wood, so just be aware of this as you might need to replace it a lot sooner!

Practicality and Maintenance 

The good news is that you don’t need to worry about a ridged cleaning routine with laminate. It only needs a sweep and a mop whenever you feel necessary and doesn’t need any special cleaner, just soap and water will do. However, as mentioned previously we’d recommend picking up any stones or debris by hand to avoid any scratches. 


Laminate Flooring can help replicate natural products such as wood and stone that often it can be hard to tell them apart. Here at Floor Coverings Local, you can pick exactly what it is you want for your home – and we can come to you to show you samples in our mobile shop.
