Why consider black laminate flooring?
For a statement floor, there’s nothing quite like black laminate. Surprisingly, the different types serve different styles of décor. Dark oak black laminate creates a regal finish, with a history stemming back to the French Aristocracy of the 17th century. On the other hand, black laminate tiles are super modern and more suited to contemporary décor. So, whether your current décor is homely and traditional or minimalist and sleek, you’ll find a black laminate floor that works perfectly.
Where is black laminate flooring most suitable?
There are no rooms where black laminate is not suitable. It depends more on the style of black laminate that you choose. For spaces you’re likely to host dinners and gatherings, consider a gloss tile effect which is a real conversation starter. More homely and warm, oak floors are great for traditional styles, while stone effect works well with all interior styles.
What are the different styles?
Despite being a rather specific type of flooring, there’s still plenty of choice when it comes to black laminate flooring. We feature products from brands like Quickstep, Kronotex and Prestige. Look out for black laminate styles inspired by the natural world, such as slate, oak and anthracite. Or perhaps you want a show-stopping gloss effect. If so, look out for wide black laminate tiles.
Dark Oak Black Laminate
Dark oak laminate has had a renaissance of late and is now considered one of the most stylish floors on the market. Consider an Arbor Oak Click Laminate from Prestige for a truly regal finish. To replicate the oak effect, this black laminate floor comes with lighter shades included in the design.
Slate Styled Black Laminate
It’ll come as no surprise that this type of black laminate is inspired by volcanic Slate rock. To replicate this type of rock, slate laminate has a natural and textured finish. The 3D-like texture picks up light, creating a dramatic and incredible finish that will change depending on the position of the sun. As you’d expect from a floor that’s inspired by volcanic rock, it’s perfectly suitable for underfloor heating. Our Quickstep Exquisita Slate Black Laminate is guaranteed to last with its scratch guard technology – so much so, it comes with a 25 year warranty and splash guarantee.
Black laminate is incredibly popular for kitchens and bathrooms, offering a sleek and stylish aesthetic. But of course, any room like these needs to take into account the fact moisture and spillages are likely. Waterproof black laminate is designed so that it won’t bend or warp when in contact with liquids.
Anthracite laminate takes its name from the high carbon sedimentary rock of the same name. This rock has the highest carbon content and fewest impurities of any sedimentary rock, resulting in a strong shine and faultless appearance. So, it’s no surprise that one of the best types of black laminate flooring is anthracite. Put simply, when it comes to black laminate flooring the term anthracite means true black.
