Laminate flooring: Natural flooring with an authentic look 

Logo Hain

Laminate is an all-round uncomplicated flooring with an excellent cost-benefit ratio that requires very little attention and will ensure you keep a beautiful and resistant floor for many years to come – guaranteed.

Laminate flooring has been one of the most popular hard floor covering for years. Hardly surprising, since laminate flooring stands like no other for durable yet attractive surfaces.

What is laminate flooring?

Laminate flooring is made up to 95% from natural resources, mostly wood. The heart is a board made of compressed wood fibres (HDF board). On the underside, it has a backing to stabilise it. Some laminate floors have an integrated sound-absorbing cushion too. On top is the “face” of the laminate flooring, the decor paper featuring authentic wood effects (beech or oak laminate) or stone decors. The top layer (the walking layer) consists of tough melamine resin. This makes the laminate flooring incredibly durable and easy to maintain.

An overview of our laminate flooring

BACK TO NATURE – the benefits of MEISTER laminate flooring

Nature is a master of form and colour. Our ambition for laminate flooring from MEISTER is to get as close to this as possible. The result is a symbiosis of extremely natural decors and ecological responsibility, bundled in our new laminate flooring range:

Durable and low-maintenance

The robust and durable surface prevents the ingress of dust and dirt. The “Diamond Pro” surface finish increases resistance against micro-scratches and abrasion and offers additional protection against wear and tear. That is what makes laminate flooring so hygienic, easy to maintain and durable.

Natural and authentic

Modern printing techniques and special embossed surfaces create laminate decors with a deceptively authentic and natural look and feel – especially on products with a synchronous pore structure. The most authentic wood effect among our decor flooring.

Laminate flooring is varied: from oak to tiles, anything is possible

In terms of design, (almost) anything is possible with laminate flooring: from white surfaces, light maple, calming beech or natural oak effects, to dark imitation slate or laminate in modern grey

What’s more, you have a choice between a wide variety of wood effects (of which oak remains the most popular), stone effects and other decors, as well as different formats (planks, short planks, tiles, herringbone).

Herringbone laminate flooring

NEW: Herringbone laminate flooring

The authentic imitation of real wood doesn’t stop at the format. One of the most classic laying patterns for parquet flooring is now also available in the MEISTER laminate range: herringbone! The LS 350 herringbone laminate flooring collection offers eight natural oak decors and can be laid in a floating installation, thanks to the Unizip click system. If you want to create an interior design highlight with a herringbone pattern, but value a more uniform appearance, you can also find the same eight oak decors as a wide short plank in the LD 250 collection.

Real-brand laminate flooring like that of MEISTER is also really authentic: its specially embossed surfaces are individually matched to the decorative image. The advantage is that When you move your fingers over the surface you actually feel the texture of the wood: wood pores, filled knots and cracks – just like you would with real wood and parquet flooring. Different depths and degrees of gloss characterise the varying pore structures and give this floor its authentic appearance. This small yet tangible detail is a characteristic feature of good quality and high-quality laminate flooring.

The new laminate edition m8

Laminate Edition m8 – Live without limits

Endlessly beautiful, super wide, extremely natural – introducing the laminate Edition m8. The extra-wide short planks appear virtually infinite, thanks to the almost seamless transition at the head end. Transition profiles are only needed every 10 metres. Even on the second glance, the authentic matt decor surface is almost indistinguishable from real wood flooring. Naturally, the Edition m8 also offers all the other advantages of a laminate floor: it is durable, water-resistant (4 hours), easy to maintain and simple to install.

In which rooms can laminate flooring be laid?

MEISTER laminate flooring is the perfect durable, low-maintenance choice for every room!

Its high wear class of 23|32 makes our laminate flooring optimally suited for all living areas, including those subjected to heavy wear, such as hallways, children’s bedrooms or workspaces. Laminate flooring is even suitable for commercial spaces subjected to a normal amount of wear, such as shops, offices or waiting rooms.

As well as having a authentic look, laminate flooring also makes a lasting good impression in living spaces with large, floor-length windows and plenty of natural light. That’s because high-quality laminate flooring is colour-fast and heat resistant. Unlike real wood or vinyl floors, its colours remain beautiful for years, even when exposed to the sun.

All our laminate floors (except for the LC 55 (S) and LD 55 collections) are equipped with comprehensive protection against humidity, making them suitable for installation in bathrooms and kitchens too! The melamine resin surface is fully waterproof by nature. Our patented click system creates a tight seal at the joints and protects against penetrating moisture in combination with our AquaStop edge impregnation. In addition, our laminate floors have an anti-swelling base board, which provides up to four hours of protection in standing moisture with the AquaSafe system, or up to 24 hours with Aqua Safe+. This makes MEISTER laminate flooring a great alternative for anyone who isn’t keen on tiles. For example, high-quality oak planks can look stunning and create a cosy feel in bathrooms!

Install laminate quickly and easily with our click system

Patented click systems not only ensure convenient, fast and low-price installation without screwing or gluing: they also ensure that laminate flooring planks remain in place long-term. The flooring can be easily installed on top of underfloor heating too. Some of our products even include an integrated sound-absorbing cushion (watch out for the “S” in the product name). This makes installation even more fun, even for DIY installers. Tip: Take a look at our installation instructions with a video and step-by-step explanation to find out how to install our click laminate flooring: 

How is laminate flooring cleaned and maintained?

It’s extremely easy to maintain as well: vacuuming is sufficient in the case of light soiling, while damp mopping with appropriate cleaning products from specialist retailers will take care of heavier soiling. In contrast to other products, laminate flooring does not require time-consuming oiling or sealing treatment. See our page “Caring for laminate flooring” for more information.

The “antistatic” feature is a clever highlight. It protects against electric charging – and attracts less dirt, so the floor covering is much easier to clean. Laminate floors from MEISTER are very forgiving of mishaps with waterproof felt pens, nail varnish, cooking oil, vinegar or paint. Small stains can be removed without causing any damage using acetone, thinner or alcohol.

Laminate, parquet or vinyl flooring – what are the differences? 

It’s easy to get overwhelmed by the large choice of floor coverings and to feel uncertain which is the right one for you. Parquet is a real wood flooring. The natural wood creates a natural and cosy atmosphere in any room, but also requires more intensive care, which is not the case with laminate flooring. You can read about the exact differences between parquet and laminate flooring in our “Knowledge” section.

Just like laminate, vinyl flooring (including click vinyl) is a decorative floor covering. Its surface imitates the look of real wood or stone. As suggested by the name, most click vinyl floors are connected via a click system and, like click laminate, can also be laid in floating installations. However, some click vinyl contains polyvinyl chloride (PVC) or other harmful plasticisers. This means laminate flooring comes out on top when it comes to healthy living. MEISTER laminate flooring is certified safe by the Blue Angel seal. 

Five good reasons for high-quality laminate flooring:

  • MEISTER laminate flooring is certified sustainable and resource-efficient
  • Authentic look and large selection of formats
    At first glance, MEISTER laminate is barely distinguishable from real wood. 
  • Easy to install: click laminate without bonding, screwing or gluing
  • 100% ecological and compatible with healthy living: as proven by the Blue Angel seal
  • Easy to maintain and durable
