Laminate is a man-made product that is designed to simulate/imitate the look of hardwood floors, and at much less the cost. Although they didn’t have the same luster as hardwood, laminate floors seemed to be a viable option for many businesses and homeowners.
At least in the past, laminate floors were easily identified as such. And today’s technology has allowed manufacturers to create substantially more realistic products with hardwood features like distressing, hand scraping, and textures, which are common wood decorations sought after by many.
Laminate flooring has become so high quality as of late, that it’s not farfetched to state that most people today cannot tell the two apart unless they are looking at the planks prior to installation.
Laminate flooring is perfect for homeowners who want the look and feel of real hardwood flooring without the maintenance and cost associated with natural wood.
Laminate, like hardwood flooring, comes in thousands of different styles, colors, textures, and levels of distressing allowing the selection of the right one for your home. Options include neutral and natural colors, dark wood grains, warm and cool color tones, restoration hardware, barn/farmhouse, elegantFrench, Italian Tuscany, Sedona, and much more!
