What is Laminate Floor?

April 2, 2013

While it’s certainly not new to the flooring scene, Laminate flooring is an exciting alternative to Engineered Wood Flooring and Solid Wood Flooring and there are more finishes, colours and styles than ever before available for today’s residential and commercial spaces.

Many home renovators choose Laminate flooring as an affordable alternative to Solid Wood Flooring. When it comes to looks, advances in technology mean that you can choose a surface that looks just like real wood flooring. Manufacturers are able to create high quality replicas that have the depth and beauty of real timber, at a fraction of the price. Some laminate flooring products also feature a textured finish so, as well as looking like timber, the floor feels more like timber too.

The beauty of Laminate flooring is that it’s incredibly durable. The strong HDF core and the top protective layer give laminate flooring a superior resistance to wear, scratches and stains. This makes it ideal for almost any commercial and residential environment. Unlike Solid Wood Flooring, Laminate flooring works well in environments prone to moisture, like bathrooms and kitchens. It is also very easy to install and maintain.
