Quick-Step Laminate

Laminate has come on leaps and bounds in a short space of time. A few years ago, laminate was nothing more than a wood substitute, an unconvincing look-a-like. Today laminate is an excellent option for many homes. Not only has the appearance and surface texture been dramatically improved, laminate flooring now comes with the reassurance of being waterproof, coming with a 25 year warranty and even a scratch guard to protect the surface from accidental damages.

Our laminate of choice is Quick-Step. We have been supply and fitting Quick-Step laminate which we feel is an excellent product, one that is easy to maintain, durable and maintains a natural authentic look.

With a huge selection of colours and finish there is something for every space; from light, clean floors too warm brown classics and even reclaimed floors with knots and cracks. 

Why choose Laminate?

Laminate is just like the real thing, giving a wood effect which wont warp or move like traditional wood floors, can be supplied in a water-proof finish and also has excellent protection against stains and scratches and all at a generally lower price point.

Is Quick-Step Waterproof?

Moisture is no problem for Quick-Step laminate with Hydro-Seal which offers a 100% waterproof surface. ‘Majestic’ and ‘Impressive (Ultra)’ laminate floors have an innovative, water-repellent ‘HydroSeal’ coating even in the grooves, so that no water can penetrate.

Details make the difference

Each laminate floor has its own story and unique look and feel. The Quick-Step designers carefully select the structure, treatment, finishing and bevel, perfectly in line with the character of each floor design.

Quick-Step planks are available in a variety of dimensions some with a waterproof surface, and particular products are available for commercial use as well as the regular residential use. Quick-Step also offers a range of structures which give differing textures to the products.

Some examples of colours and finishes from the Impressive Ultra range


Elegant Wood structure

A subtle surface texture with a fine grain structure that gives a wood effect with a very natural look and feel.

Natural Wood Structure

A surface texture where the grain, knots and cracks that are visible in the design can also be felt in the surface structure of the laminate floor. This perfect combination of design and structure ensures that the floor looks and feels like real wood.

Intense Wood Structure

This distinct structure has varying depths and gloss levels accentuating the knots and cracks. The design and surface structure is more pronounced that the natural wood structure.

Stone Structure

A surface texture that realistically displays the structure of a stone pattern.

Fantasy Structure

A surface texture that has a look and feel of exclusive materials such as leathers and fabrics.

Quick-Step structure options



A surface effect that gives the appearance of brushed wood. The brushed treatment adds depth and authenticity to a laminate floor.

Saw Cut

This effect gives the impression of rough sawn wood thanks to the visible and tangible saw cuts


A hand-scraped surface treatment gives a crafted, hand-worked finish to your floor.
