Unlike parquet flooring, there is no reason not to install laminate yourself. And as KRONOTEX is snap-together flooring, laying it is quite easy, even for inexperienced DIYers. The planks use a tongue-and-groove system that lets you simply snap them together without the need for any special knowledge or tools. However, for best results it’s important to follow a few basic rules before and after installation.
In the festive season, we want to come together as families, take a break from everyday life and relax in beautiful candle light under the Christmas tree. Dripping resin or wax from the tree onto your laminate flooring can happen quickly. No reason to panic. We will tell you how to easily remove resin and wax stains.

As a precaution, we recommend you cover areas which are particularly at risk - for example directly under your Christmas tree. You can use a blanket or even beautiful paper. You can make the protective cover a part of your Christmas decoration. Nevertheless, it’s often not entirely possible to prevent accidents from happening.
You’d like to put down a laminate floor, so you’re reading up on everything you might have to think about in advance. You’ve heard that you need some kind of laminate-wall clearance, i.e. that you have to leave a gap between the panels you lay down and the wall or other fixed objects. You’re wondering whether this gap will be so big that classic baseboards aren’t enough to hide it. And how do you go about leaving this clearance anyway? Isn’t laminate likely to slip? What can you do about that? And, just between ourselves, couldn’t you maybe get away without leaving a gap between laminate and wall? Sorry; we can tell you right away that that’s a very bad idea.

Laminate end profiles are such a cunning invention that they’d even make MacGyver gasp. This somewhat cumbersome term means mouldings designed to do more than merely hiding transitions, gaps and sudden changes in flooring – they smooth them over and make them beautiful.
In a shared flat, dark laminate in the hallway gives way to pale laminate in the bedroom; a new home might have an open-plan, American-style kitchen leading straight into the living room, while another rented flat could have both laminate and carpet. Threshold strips can be an elegant and attractive way of evening out two types of flooring or little differences in the level of the floor.
Sometimes our plans change as a result of external circumstances. Maybe now you’ll have to store your newly-bought laminate for rather longer than you originally had in mind. The builders aren’t ready. Or you’ve got more laminate left over after laying than you expected because you were sparing with your off-cuts. Just throwing laminate away is out of the question for a practical-minded person like you. You want to store laminate but want to know what could go wrong
Times are hard, money short and energy limited. It is often not worth investing a lot of time and money in a rented home if you’re going to move out shortly afterwards. Laminate flooring solves this problem. It is quick to lay, inexpensive, and it looks good too. But can you lay laminate on tiles? Yes, you can. So long as you bear a few important hints in mind. Let us explain how it works.
Laminate is a very robust flooring, but it is not unbreakable. It is often little flaws like scratches and streaks that blemish the laminate and call on us to clean and care for it. Here are our tips and tricks for quick and long-lasting laminate care.
Not all laminate is the same. This beautiful and inexpensive flooring is now so en vogue that you find it at home, in offices, bars and restaurants.
