What you should pay attention to when buying a laminate flooring
In which room is the laminate flooring to be laid? What spatial effect do you want to generate? Whether for the private home, office or hotel room: The right choice of laminate depends, of course, on the intended application and the type of room. The room size, the interior design concept and the light mood are also decisive. Light or dark, 8 or 12 mm, long and wide boards, multi-strip and much more: Laminate floorings not only differ in their thickness, in the board size and in the decor pattern. Apart from the colour, decor and surface texture, the chamfer and the laying profile can also be decisive when choosing the suitable laminate flooring. One of the most important selection criteria is the wear class also known as the use class.
Different use classes (categories) for laminate
A differentiation is made between use classes for private domestic use and commercial use depending on the intensity of the future use of the flooring. Categories 21, 22 and 23 are suitable for private use. The higher the number the higher the assumed intensity of use. Category 23 laminate floorings, for example, are ideal for the anteroom or for the kitchen. Categories 31, 32 and 33 are ideally suitable for commercially used rooms. More intensive use or traffic is to be expected in such rooms. For example, category 33 is very suitable for a restaurant.
