Laminate beautifully captures the appealing look of hardwood and the warmth of slate and stone. It simply looks like the real thing! And laminate flooring is great for busy families: it installs easily, wears incredibly well, and comes in a beautiful array of colors and styles.
Today's laminate looks so realistic, you’ll find yourself asking, “Is it laminate, or is it hardwood?” It’s laminate, all right—the stylish result of modern breakthroughs in technology and manufacturing methods. Some styles convey the authentic look of wood, while others offer the classic appeal of ceramic tile. Various shades and finishes allow you to choose the wood look down to the species, and now laminates are mimicking hardwood even more. Some laminates offer beveled, distressed, and highly textured options—giving your laminate floor not only the look of hardwood, but the feel of it, too.
Laminates are inherently good for the environment because they use fewer resources and far less wood in the manufacturing process. And because they’re durable—some styles even offer 25-year warranties—so you don’t have to replace laminate floors as often.
Consider laminate for a distinctive look that’s both affordable and beautiful.
