The History of Laminate Flooring

Laminate flooring remains one of the most popular types of flooring not only in South Africa, but around the world. This flooring option has the capacity to remain beautiful and durable for many decades, when maintained properly. It is only one of the many reasons behind its never-ending popularity. This flooring was first invented in the late 1970s by a Swedish company.

The Swedish business first marketed this flooring option to Europe in the mid 1980s, while only later to the U.S. However, it was only in 1996 that glue-less laminate flooring was first invented, by another Swedish company. A Belgian company developed a method for keeping flooring panels together at the same time, and released its product in 1997.
