A laminate floor is a layered floor built around a watertight, glued High Density Fibre (HDF) board. All Quick-Step laminate floors consist of four different layers:
1. A TRANSPARENT, WEAR-RESISTANT OVERLAY
2. A DESIGN LAYER
3. A MOISTURE RESISTANT GLUED HDF CORE BOARD
4. A BALANCING LAYER
Yes, you can. Quick-Step Laminate floors have a scratch and wear resistant 'Scratch Guard' surface layer, making them a perfect choice for your kitchen as well.
Combining a Quick-Step Laminate floor with traditional underfloor heating embedded in the screed is no problem at all. However, it is important that you install your floor 'floating' and that you choose the right underlay.

Yes, you can. Make sure to install a suitable Quick-Step underlay (with built-in moisture barrier) under the floor and provide sufficiently large expansion gaps so that the installed floor can freely move under the skirting boards. Also avoid standing water or other liquids on the floor, and put suitable doormats outside to collect dirt. Colour fading due to exposure of sunlight is not to be expected.
