Durable and scratch resistant, today’s laminate flooring offers the realistic appearance of natural wood grain at a fraction of the cost.
Capture The Realism
Get the look of luxurious hardwood flooring at a fraction of the cost. Today’s laminate planks have a striking realistic appearance of natural wood grain in a more durable material that is resistant to scratches, moisture, and everyday wear and tear. Laminate allows you to achieve the hardwood flooring appearance in rooms where natural wood cannot go, such as bathrooms and basements. Similar to natural hardwood, laminate flooring comes in a selection of colors, replicated wood species, surface texture, and plank width.
Begin with your overall shade and color preference. Are you drawn to pale, blonde wood tones or deep, rich shades? Innovative technology in laminate manufacturing can duplicate the appearance of specific wood species, such as oak, ash, Brazilian cherry, and chestnut. Each wood species has a distinctive visual in graining, knotting, and coloring, which can lean towards a specific decorating influence such as modern or rustic.
Durable And Beautiful
Just like natural hardwood flooring, laminate planks are available in a variety of surface types, which can subtly or dramatically change the presentation of the flooring. Choose a traditional, smooth surface with a matte or semi-gloss finish. Or opt for one of the trending texturized looks of wire-brushing, hand-scraping, or distressed methods that create a worn, aged appearance. Laminates are also available in varying plank widths from thin and delicate to wide and bold.
Once you have selected your laminate flooring, the installation process follows. Whether you choose to hire a professional or install it yourself, know what to expect before and during installation to ensure things run smoothly.
