A Help Guide to Wood / Laminate Underlay

Laminate flooring is a hardwearing, cost-effective and easy to clean floor surfacing option, and it is perfect for kitchens, hallways and bathrooms in your home. It is also ideal for use with flooring in a business or retail setting. 

You may know what carpet underlay to use, but you may be wondering “What is the best underlay for laminate flooring?” - well, the Carpet Underlay Shop team are here to help with this handy guide to Laminate Carpet Underlay!

Despite laminate flooring's many advantages, usually it lacks insulating ability, and can sometimes make a room seem colder and harder to heat and that is part of the reason many homeowners do not know which underlay for laminate to buy. This can make you feel uncomfortable in your own home and force you to put the heating on for longer or more frequently, which can, in turn, drive up your energy bills, potentially costing you a lot of money. Luckily, this can be fixed by learning which is the best underlay for laminate flooring from Carpet Underlay Shop!

Laminate underlays are specially made to work with laminate or wooden floors, providing a range of benefits from soundproofing to thermal insulation and they are also compatible with underfloor heating. But what is the best underlay for laminate flooring? We stock a range of laminate underlay brands such as Royale underlays capable of providing an increased level of warmth and comfort to your wooden or laminate flooring.
