Why everyone is LOVING laminate doors
After their successful introduction in 2018, laminate doors (meaning laminate ‘finish’ doors) have taken the UK by storm and completely revolutionised the internal door market. Being the latest trend in interior door design, but relatively new, we imagine there’s a lot of questions surrounding these type of doors and hopefully we can give you the answers you’re looking for!
Practical, gorgeous & affordable – it must be a laminate door!
2018 was certainly the year of laminate doors. From the moment they were introduced into the market and seen by customers around the UK, it was apparent that everyone LOVED laminate doors. Highly practical, picking a laminate interior door just makes sense, as they offer the best of both worlds – benefits of a timber door, without the high cost and hard-work that comes with getting them fitted. These doors offer a true-to-life wood effect appearance and other natural materials, with an extremely hard-wearing fully finished laminated surface. Think of them as the “laminate floor” of the door industry… Obvious, I know, but essentially it’s the same thing!
