Handscraped appearance and texture... Just like Hardwood flooring!


Kensington Manor by Dream Home - 12mm Tanzanian Wenge Laminate Flooring - 30 Year Warranty

Kensington Manor is a premium 12mm + 3mm pre-glued underlayment laminate product line. What is unique is that most of the line has a handscraped finish appearance. This is not simply in the look, but also in the actual texture!
The combination of these 2 characteristics gives them a beautiful rustic feel!
Also, the V-groove and pre-glued 3mm underlayment will make your installation process quick and easy.

Quick Installation Tips:
- Store flooring flat for 48 hours in its original packaging at room temperature.
- Must be installed over a clean, stable, flat, smooth, and dry surface.
- Moisture barrier is required for installations over concrete.

- Make sure the panels are mixed sufficiently when you install them so that you do not end up with too many identical, light or dark panels next to each other.

IF YOU CHOOSE TO USE ADDITIONAL PADDING:
Laminates having pre-attached padding can be installed over an underlayment. When doing so, Lumber Liquidators recommends the use of our Bellawood Premium underlayment or ECO Silent Sound underlayment. These quality underlayments will best support the joints while ensuring superior thermal sound reduction qualities and are highly recommended for use with condominium associations, project planners and building specifiers.

Kensington Manor Flooring Advantages:
- No glue and no nails needed
- Easy Click Installation
- Moisture resistant board
- Thickness: 12mm + 3mm (1/8") pre-glued underlayment
- AC Rating: 3  
- 30 Year Warranty

We caught up with real Lumber Liquidators' customers who volunteered to discuss their floor shopping, buying and installation experiences. In no way did these customers receive compensation for their kind words. (They're speaking straight from the heart.)

    I absolutely love this flooring!! Yes, it gets dirty and smudges easily but most laminate floors do-you just don't notice it on lighter flooring. The dark finish really does add a richness to any room!! So happy I chose this product!

    Most frustrating purchase

    By Hollie

    Pros

    • Beautiful In Poor Light
    • Beautiful When Clean

    Cons

    • Chips easy
    • Impossible to keep clean
    • Loud to walk on
    • Scratches Easy
    • Shows EVERYTHING
    • Smudges

    Best Uses

    • Basement With No Light

    Yes, like every other comment, this floor is gorgeous, but that is ONLY for the first 10 minutes after cleaning, then it's back to looking like it hasn't been cleaned in WEEKS. I was warned about dark floors showing everything and being hard to keep clean, I ignored advice because I don't mind sweeping a couple times a day. What I wasn't prepared for was the foot smudges! Imagine laying your bathroom mirror on the floor and letting people walk on it, are you imagining every tiny smudge footprint, and handprint? Now times that by 20 because these floors are also dark, so you have the smudges AND dust particles. You can literally notice a grain of salt on these floors. These floors need to be swept AND mopped every hour (or less) to maintain a clean look, unless its dark outside because darkness is your friend with these floors. Natural light just shines rays of regret and frustration all over my bottom level. I promise you, the beauty of these floors is not worth the hassle.
    -have tried warm water/vinegar solution
    -tried Bona floor cleaning system
    -tried wearing socks to prevent foot prints but heat from feet cause smudging through the socks.

    Very pleased with product

    By Matthew

    from Moorhead, MN

    Verified Reviewer

    Pros

    • complete with pad
    • Easy To Install
    • No Loose Connections
    • Solid feel
    • very durable

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • EASY TO CLEAN
      • Great Over Concrete
      • Used For Nursery

      I purchased this wood to be used in the floor for a new nursery I was building in my basement. I applied my vapor barrier underneath, and the pad included on the wood pieces insulated the floor well. To cut the pieces to length, I used a high speed oscillating saw, which took longer than a regular saw, but left a very clean cut with no blemishes. Start with a new blade though. This floor will be very easy to clean if/when spills happen, and the durability is very good. My 3 year old dropped my hammer on it and no marks were left. I tested on a scrap cut piece and hit it hard with my hammer a few times, and nothing, no marks. Very pleased with my purchase.

            Best Uses

              We love the look of these floors! They really are beautiful but are extremely high maintenance. Every bit of dust stands out like a sore thumb, which I was expecting. These floors are not for people that do not want to mop everyday. We have also found that they chip rather easily, but another reviewer mentioned using a black sharpie to cover the chips and we too have found that the marker really covers the blemish.
              We paid to have the floors professionally installed, so I cannot speak about the ease of installation.
              This laminate was installed on our main level foyer, hallway, kitchen, laundry room and half bath.
              Overall, I love these floors and would recommend them to others as long as they know the maintenance required.

                  Pros

                  • Looks beautiful

                  Cons

                  • Edges Chip When Cutting
                  • Edges Peel When Cutting
                  • Factory Edges Not Clean
                  • Hard to assemble

                  Best Uses

                  • Bedroom

                  So putting this together was a bit more of a pain than usual. The thicker laminate is actually harder to assemble, because it requires quite a bit of force to lock the pieces into place. The factory edges aren't clean, meaning there were places where I had to clean the grooves in order to get the pieces to lock properly.

                  I put this floor down in my bedroom, which isn't a plain square. I had to make a lot of cuts, and had to discard a few pieces because the finish chips rather easily.

                  I bought the assembly kit just for kicks, and it's rubbish, don't bother.

                  All that said, it was worth the effort. The thicker laminate looks great, and the floor is absolutely beautiful.

                        Ordered this online so was a bit concerned about what it would look like in person. It surpassed all expectations! A local contractor said it is the best laminate floor he has ever seen, and he is going to order some for his home. Hope it isn't discontinued anytime soon as I would love to replace some other flooring soon! Cleans easily and is comfortable to walk on. If you are considering it, order it!

                          1 answer

                          • Staff Reviewer

                            A:

                            Our wood floors are manufactured for maximum durability, easy maintenance and finished with a high quality aluminum oxide water base urethane UV cured finish. This step protects the wood and helps keep the flooring looking beautiful longer. While highly durable, the finish is NOT considered indestructible. However, by observing a few precautions like setting up a regular cleaning routine and simple maintenance program to protect the finish, you can expect years of performance and beauty from your wood floor. All wood floors can show signs of wear over time. There are many factors that can affect the amount of wear. These include the size and lifestyle of your family and product location.
                            The following cleaning principles are recommended for all of our products -Hardwood, Laminates, Corks, Bamboo and other Exotics. Outlined are examples of the reasonable and necessary maintenance to be performed; this is only intended to be a basic list;
                            • Immediately after installation, be certain that the flooring is completely cleaned and dry as described below. If you must protect the flooring from traffic, use only “craft” paper, brown, red or white, this will allow the flooring to “breathe”. Do not fully cover the flooring. NEVER lay plastic of any kind or any other non-porous material over the flooring as this can trap moisture, harm the flooring or fade the finish.
                            • Sweep or vacuum regularly, since built-up dirt, grit and sand can damage the surface of the wood. If using a vacuum, use a soft brush attachment -NOT A BEATER BAR ATTACHMENT. Be certain the wheels of the vacuum are clean and do not damage the finish. When using a broom be certain that bristles are soft. You can also use a dry mop.
                            • Because of the myriad of cleaning products available and methods of each application, Lumber Liquidators cannot endorse or oversee the use of any Brand Name of floor cleaner. We do recommend cleaning products safe for urethane finishes such as our Bellawood floor cleaner.
                            • The use of a changeable terry cloth type system to clean the floor is highly recommended; apply cleaning solution to the terry cloth not the floor.
                            • NEVER use oil soaps, liquid, or paste wax products or other household cleaners that contain lemon oil, Tung oil, silicone, or ammonia on pre-finished flooring. The use of these products will harm the long-term performance and appearance of your floor and may affect future re-coating. (Damages caused by non-recommended cleaning products are not covered by warranties). NOTE: This also includes the use of vinegar and water solutions as water can damage wood. Vinegar is an acidic element that can have an oxidizing, caustic effect on the finish.
                            • In an effort to clean hardwood floors, many have experimented with a variety of cleaners on the market and end up with a new problem. “How to remove the build-up of cleaning products revealing the original surface"? If this is the case with you, we recommend consulting with a professional cleaner local to your area because they can best see the details involved and make the most accurate recommendations. If you choose to remove the layers of build-up yourself, use cotton rags instead of a mop to control the amount of liquid used.
                            • NEVER wet-mop, damp-mop, swab or flood your floor with water or any other product. Moisture can seep into the seams causing edge-cupping damage. Urethane floors do not require wet mopping. Natural floors are water resistant, not water proof. Remove all spills promptly using a soft, slightly damp cloth
                            • STEAM CLEANERS OR WET-JET swiffer; Lumber Liquidators does not recommend "Water brooms" "Wet-Jet Swiffers or steamer type cleaners on laminates, corks or hardwood floors. Although steamers may work well cleaning OTHER types of hard surface flooring, the 130° to 240° heated steam vapor can ruin wood or urethane finish resulting in warped or cupped flooring. Water and wood do not mix well, especially steam. Use these products at your own risk.
                            • Do place protective mats at entry doors to keep dirt, grit, sand and moisture from being track in from the outside.
                            • Do use area rugs in heavily traveled areas and pivot points (e.g., stair landings, room entries, etc.), especially if you have a large family or indoor pets.
                            • When using area rugs, use a rug pad with a felt, plant or PVC based backing. DO NOT use area rugs with a petroleum based rubber backing (typically black) as this can cause permanent chemical staining/etching of the floor finish.
                            • Take reasonable precautions; use a dolly and protective sheets of plywood when moving heavy objects such as furniture and appliances.
                            • Place protective pads beneath furniture legs and feet to reduce scratches and dents. Check and replace wore pads regularly.
                            • Keep pet’s nails trimmed, and paws clean and free of dirt, gravel, grease, oil, and stains.
                            • Scratches, dents and cupping are site related, not considered a manufactured defect.

                            Laminates having pre-attached padding can be installed over an underlayment. When doing so, Lumber Liquidators recommends the use of our Bellawood Premium underlayment or ECO Silent Sound underlayment. These quality underlayments will best support the joints (locking system)

                            Mix it up & shuffle the deck by working from three to four boxes at a time utilizing all lengths maintaining a minimum 6 inch joint stagger to create a random look (there is no set pattern to follow).

                            Floating Stair Step Installations:

                            1. Starting from the bottom of the staircase working up, cut the stair riser to match the height and width of the step. The risers can be made from the flooring or other finished material.
                            2. The flush Stair Nosing is then installed to overlap and cover the riser.
                            (Nail and glue for safety,)
                            3. Cut the flooring to length and assemble it with the Stair Nosing. The step
                            assembly can be done first and installed as one piece if preferred.
                            4. An additional "filler" piece of flooring must be added to the back of the flooring.

                            The Steps and Risers should be attached by direct gluing to the stair using 100& urethane
                            construction adhesive or wood mastic. (For safety, omit all padding)
                            TIP; fit and adjust each step before gluing.
                            Yes, laminate flooring can be used to cover a set of stairs but due to the overlap design of the stair nosings it would not be my first choice for a full flight of stairs.
                            We sell replacement stairs and risers. Thank you for your inquiry.

                            Due to the excessive moisture present in a full bath we cannot recommend any of our solid natural flooring or laminate products for this application, I would suggest one of our vinyl Tranquility products. We have a 2mm peel and stick and now a 4mm click together product that can go in full bath areas or where moisture is a concern. Thank you for your inquiry.

                            We do retail the matching transitions and moldings for this material, I apologize they are not online - with over 2,500 moldings and transitions sometimes they are not all listed on our website
