The classic: Laminate plank in oak decor

The majority of laminate floorboards from Parquet Hinterseer in the country house look has a decor in oak look. Oak wood is so popular because it has a high recognition value with its striking appearance and creates a very natural atmosphere with its branch holes. Depending on your taste and the size of the room, you have various options for the color scheme. While dark country house floorboards in an oak décor look warm and noble, lighter color nuances provide an open and friendly light overall impression. Also discover laminate floorboards with e.g. a chestnut or spruce decor layer!

Parkett Hinterseer also offers laminate flooring as ship flooring, cork and tiles.

How is laminate constructed?

Layer 1: Overlay

The uppermost layer of a laminate floorboard forms a wear layer (overlay) which is particularly hard-wearing. This consists of a cellulose treated with synthetic resin.

Layer 2: Decor

This is followed by a decorative layer. The printed paper gives the laminate flooring its high-quality appearance. In this case, the laminate imitates a flooring with a natural wideplank look.

Layer 3: Carrier plate

The largest proportion of the laminate floorboard is made up of the carrier board. The high-density wood fiber board usually consists of 90 percent wood fibers. It provides the necessary stability and strength of the panels.

Layer 4: Countermove

The countermove forms the last layer on the back of the carrier plate. It is responsible for the durability of the mold and the moisture barrier.

Plank know-how: The perfect substrate and care tips

Underground

  • To ensure that you can enjoy your floor for many years and that there are no unattractive deformations, a well-prepared subsoil is essential! The floor on which the laminate floorboards in country house style are later laid should above all be level and permanently dry. If these conditions are met, clean the surface carefully. As soon as you have ensured that there is no residual moisture, you can lay the planks with a clear conscience according to the laying instructions.

Care and cleaning

Since most plank floors are treated with oil, the laminate flooring scores with a dirt-repellent matt surface. In general:

  • - Remove coarse dirt with a broom or vacuum cleaner. To avoid scratches, grains of sand and small stones should be removed immediately.
  • - Depending on how the floor is used, it is advisable to wipe the floorboards with a damp cloth every week/month.
