Decorative Layer

Flooring layers

Definition of Decorative Layer

A decorative layer is the layer right below the topmost or wear layer of a flooring product. It is made of durable and resistant materials such as polyurethane or vinyl.

As the name suggests, the decorative layer determines the look and feel of a flooring product. 

It ranges between 0.5 and 1.5 millimeters in thickness. Thicker layers are suitable for high-traffic areas that experience a lot of wear and tear. 

Example of Decorative Layer in a Sentence

“Residential flooring typically has a thinner decorative layer than commercial flooring.”
