Everyday we have customers walking into our store asking which brand of floor is more stylish and practicable for their home renovations. Quick-step laminate is certainly one of the most popular flooring choices. So we thought it would be great to share some thoughts and ideas around picking the right quick-step floor.
Quick-Step Impressive Ultra Soft Oak Natural
A lot of homeowners favor the engineered floors over the timber floor because the premium vinyl planks and laminate floors can both deal with moist, water, stains, scratches better than timber floors. Simple as that. Especially when people are considering kitchen and other high traffic areas, we would say quick-step laminate floors can never be a bad choice. And in that, quick-step impressive ultra is one of our top recommendations.
A lot of households with young kids, babies or pets would seriously consider water and wear & tear resistance as a big deciding factor. In the recent years, quick-step introduced the “hydroseal” technology to its range of products, including impressive ultra collections. This technology made households’ dreams come true.
Also, people used to say the laminate floors & vinyl planks can’t give you the same feel and smell that timber floors give you. But this is no longer the case, They provide the same feel and touch these days. Often people cannot tell the difference between timber and laminate floors.
Quick-Step Impressive Ultra Classic Oak Natural
Within the engineered floors, it’s also hard to choose between premium vinyl planks and laminate floors. We love them both! That’s the short answer. But let’s try to explain the difference between them, so you can have a pretty good idea.
These days when you look at laminate floors and vinyl floors, they sometimes can look very similar or even the same because of the super advanced printing technologies. They even look better than the Quick-Step timber floors as we would joke about.
Apart from the look & feel, people want to make sure the floors they choose are going to be practicable for their household. So which ones are easier to clean and maintain? Laminate and vinyl both are.
Are they resistant to water, wear and tear, scratches etc? They both are as well.
We used to say that the quick-step laminate floors are more scratch-resistant. But they are made by HDF “high density fibre board” so they are not the most water resistant floor. Vinyl used to be more waterproof. Although that’s a bit of an old story, because in the recent years, quick-step’s “hydroseal” technology made their laminate floors very water resistant. For example their impressive ultra and majestic laminate floors.
One of the old sayings was that laminate floors are hard and noisy to walk on, relatively speaking, compared to the vinyl floors. Also, you can talk to us about underlays, they just lift your laminate floor game to the next level!
So why Impressive Ultra? We’re obviously obsessed with it.
Quick-step Impressive Ultra floors are just delightful to walk on, sit on, sleep on or jump on. From every angle, they deserve to the modern classic choice amongst all quick-step floors.The little secret is because they use a very high quality genuine bevel so the laminate floor just feel like timber floors, without the timber floor price tag of course.
One more thing that’s a big selling point for us, the colour and designs provided by the impressive ultra selection is superb. Some of them definitely look much more stylish than the timber selections.
Customers make their choices wisely
At the end of the day, we can say whether we feel right to the customers. They know better than anymore what style and product is better for their households. Also they know what sits beneath the quick-step brand name is quality and assurance. Not every brand in the showroom can present you with a 25 year guarantee, plus a 10 year guarantee on water resistance.
The best thing for our customers is that they can come to our showroom in rockdale, feel the products themselves. If you want to discuss the difference between the brands, products and styles, we can talk about that with you the whole day! If you want, take some samples with you. Put them in your house, they will have a better feel whether that floor style and thickness are good choices for your household. you ‘re going to touch and look at the floor for a few good years, of course you want to make sure you are making the right choice.
One common question our customers ask us a lot, should I go with impressive ultra or majestic?
Their colours and designs could be similar, the biggest difference between the two is plank size. The quick-step majestic planks are extra long and wide. It’s like making a bald statement for your floor when using majestic floors. If you have a spacious kitchen or living area, you would highly recommend the majestic range. On the contrary, the extra wide and long majestic planks could make your room look a bit tight if they were too spacious to start with. That’s why we say, you should take a sample home and put it in your room for real feel.
The quick-step impressive ultra floors are more mild, with medium size planks. They are the more conventional size which wouldn’t go too wrong most of the time.
