Laminate Flooring Accessories
Laminate flooring accessories are the “icing on the cake” – they add a more professional finish to your space. It is best to buy your laminate floor accessories from the same brand that you bought your laminate floor, so they match in colour and pattern.
Laminate flooring manufacturers produce their own accessories to match the flooring they supply, which generally include: trim and skirting, laminate flooring transition bars, laminate flooring stair profiles and laminate flooring pipe collars. You will also need laminate underlay, which should be chosen based on the type of sub-floor you have, e.g. concrete or plywood and take into account noise transmission, moisture and other environmental considerations.

Let’s begin with a breakdown of the types of trim and skirting available for blending your laminate floor into the space.
Laminate Flooring Trim and Skirting
Scotia – covers the gap around the edge of the newly laid laminate flooring up to the skirting boards or plain wall.
End Cap – best used when the height of Concava or Scotia is too high and not suitable for blending flooring to a patio door for example. End cap is also used to blend laminate floors to the wall.
Skirting Board – if there are no existing skirting boards then decorative skirting boards that match the colour of the laminate flooring can cover the border gap around the laminate flooring to give a finished look. Various sizes such as 60mm, 80mm and 96mm skirting are available.
Laminate Flooring Transition Bars
For when laminate flooring meets another type of flooring or surface such as in a doorway or open plan kitchen from laminate to carpet, laminate flooring transition bars are the answer.
T-Moulding – useful for doorways or between flooring sections which are on the same level, T-Moulding is an expansion joint the creates a fluid transition between two surfaces.
Laminate Flooring Stairnoses
For laminate flooring in halls and landings you may want to continue your new look up and down the stairs.
Stairnose – provides a professional transition for the steps in your house covering the leading edges of the laminate flooring.
