Flooring is a very complex component in a building. Many types of application can be used as flooring but the thing usually focus is usage, view, and price. For us, Aathaworld Sdn Bhd has been in flooring industries for quite some time and notice a steady growth of wood flooring usage among Malaysian interior design.

Laminate flooring is currently our most popular product in 2018 due to its natural look and comfortable to walk on. Many of our office and residence clients are fond of it because its appearance and surface feel like a wood product. The truth is that laminate flooring is 99% wood product and the material that is used are usually plywood and fiberboard. In order to make the wood product more delightful a layer of laminate with design, and the pattern is glue on the surface to provide a custom look. The design can look like natural wood and it also can look like natural stone. To make things easier now the laminate flooring also come out a plank flooring version which use interlocking style to join together. This installation is highly recommended as no chemical is involved and upon installation, there is no odor present and can be put to use directly. The method is very easy even you can do it yourself when you consult with one of Aathaworld Sdn Bhd Contractor. Laminate flooring can usually be used on interior floorings such as room, living room and kitchen. For your information, many of the building on higher altitude is very recommended to use laminate flooring because cold weather would make the flooring cold especially stone material. On the other hand, the wood product has better thermal insulation and flooring would feel like ice in the middle of the night.
Vinyl flooring usually comes in sheet version. It is a 100% synthetic material and the base layer is usually fiberglass. The base layer is then coated with PVC vinyl and plasticizer to bond as one. From the material made up, we can know that Vinyl flooring has a higher resistance to moisture and water because of its base material. Unlike wood base laminate flooring, the wood material has the potential of rot and termite risk. Although you can apply water-resistant or moisture barrier to the laminate flooring yet you can't deny the risk is still present. Vinyl flooring usually required adhesive to the bonding so that it can stick to the underlayment. Vinyl flooring can design to look similar to wood product but the surface touch is obviously different. The thickness of the vinyl is also thinner than laminate flooring but Vinyl flooring require professional installation since it requires the usage of adhesive. Self-installation is not very recommended because of our experience tell us low-quality installation reduce longevity and durability. To counter this issue Vinyl flooring also come out a similar plank version of vinyl flooring which is label as luxury vinyl flooring (LVF) planks. Similar to a laminate flooring it can look remarkably like natural wood and the installation is using joint and locking method which no chemical or adhesive is involve.

Other similar floorings
Carpet can also be used as flooring to be similar or different from laminate and vinyl flooring. Carpet requires constant maintenance which leads to higher cost in the long run. Contaminated carpet is dangerous to kids and well being of the user so proper cleaning schedule for carpet is a must. Solid wood flooring or decking can work better than laminate flooring and even vinyl flooring. The wood itself can be water resistant and termite resistant by choosing the proper timber. But the downside of it is the price it posses are very high and more designated tree need to cut down. Although solid wood can be reused and very durable but the demand would usually cause more deforestation than recycling.
