Traviata Flooring Products

Traviata Flooring offers a variety of flooring options to cater to different needs and preferences.

  • Laminate Flooring: They offer two types of laminate flooring – Cadenza and Camsan. The Cadenza range, produced to the highest quality standards of the European Producers of Laminate Flooring (EPLF), offers a sophisticated, highly fashionable flooring option with a four-sided bevel to create an authentic wood plank effect. The Camsan range features the ultra-high density core board from Camsan which results in lower swell rates than standard laminates.
