Quick-Step Elite Laminate In-Depth Review

The Quick-Step Elite range offers eight planks in diverse patterns, shades and textures. With their stunning resemblance to solid oak floors, these Quick-Step laminate planks are perfect for lending a look of rustic sophistication to your interiors.

These wide, single strip planks are available in different shades ranging from pale grey to medium hues to dark and bold tones. The surface flaunts knots, grains, patterns and even distressed finishes that make them look just like hardwood floors.

The surface of the these 8mm thick planks is coated with a melamine resin that protects your floors from scratches, abrasions and other wear and tear. The elite collection is an excellent choice of flooring for families with kids, of for heavy traffic areas or homes with overenthusiastic pets.

This protective layer also acts as a barrier against damp and liquids. You can safely install these laminate floors in moisture-prone spaces like kitchens and bathrooms. In case you spill something, quickly mop it to prevent stains.

The planks in this range are crafted with care to create exclusive laminate floors that do not dent or bulge easily. The extremely durable and firmly glued HDF core board ensures your floors stay sturdy and stable without requiring repair or replacement.

The planks feature micro-bevelled edges that further enhance the beauty of these charming floors. Like all Quick-Step laminate floors, these are also perfectly compatible with underfloor heating systems.

These scratch and stain resistant laminate floors are easy to maintain too. Regular vacuuming and an occasional mopping will help retain the floor in top form.

However, the greatest advantage of these classy floors from Quick-Step is the installation process. The laminate floors are installed using the patented Uniclic system, which makes installation quick, easy and simple.

The planks feature grooves on all sides and can simply be clicked together for a robust installation. You won’t need any specialized equipment or glue to install these laminate floors.
