The main types of laminate flooring surface
In this article we will talk about the basic types of laminate flooring. So there are several laminate flooring types of surface. Normal surface is the standard coating of the laminate, which is virtually in any manufacturer. This coating has a noticeable silky sheen (the analogue of the matte varnish) it is smooth with clearly visible reflection in the small depressions on the surface-strokes.
“Natural” surface exactly mimics varnished natural wood. This surface is flat and smooth, with a noticeable silky sheen and clearly visible reflection of the “wood pores” those are clearly follows the pattern of the wood. There can be different laminate flooring types of underlay in this case. Relief surface has a small “relief” created delicate smooth longitudinal strips extending along the length of panels of the laminate. These types of laminate flooring for kitchens can simulate the ceramic tiles with uneven rough surface. Also you can use such types of laminate flooring for bathrooms if it is water resistant.
The surface “country” has a large and smooth “relief” like of the roughened by hand “old-fashioned” wood. “Aged” surface has a large and smooth “relief” repeating the pattern of the wood texture, and with the marked “wood chips”. Such a surface is obtained when the planks made of wood for a long time had lain under the open air and sun.
