Wooden Vs Laminate Flooring

Wooden Vs Laminate Flooring


It’s no secret that both laminate and wooden flooring remain firm favourites in households across the globe. They’re classic looks that wear well over time and with a selection of different shades available, they’re adaptable to any interior. Not only are they particularly resilient, but they’re easy to clean too! If you’re searching for inspiration, let our selection here at Maltby’s help you.

The Classic

Nothing says luxury quite like a home finished with wooden flooring. Elegant and timeless, The Classic Oak Natural from Quicksand is ideal in family homes. Proving to be incredibly hardwearing, the flooring is designed with Scratch Guard Technology making it ten times more scratch-resistant than those created without. If you’re searching for flooring that is easy to manage and clean this is the answer – a quick brush and wipe of a mop will have it gleaming in no time at all!


If you’re aiming to balance the light and dark elements in a room and your colour scheme focuses predominantly on brighter shades, the Stretto Valencia Almond Laminate from Balterio is the perfect contribution; the warm tones help to create an inviting feel to a room. The textured surface, slight bevel on the edging and realistic wood grain embossing adds authenticity despite being a cheaper alternative to wooden flooring.

Salcombe Chalked Oak

With Summer approaching, we often find ourselves in search of inspiration for lighter interior trends to truly reflect the season. The Salcombe Chalked Oak flooring from Woodpecker is perfect as its bright white hues and ashen undertones convey a light and airy feel, whilst its matte lacquered finish expresses an overarching sense of contemporary style.

Drift Pine

If your home contains vivid colours, it can be difficult to find flooring that complements the existing hues. The solution to this lies within the Amtico range. Drift Pine is a grey stained wood, which is perfect in allowing you to balance colours effectively. The subtle weathered effect brings a soft organic texture to modern interiors and adds character and originality.
