Loving laminate flooring

The variety of designs, colors, styles, and looks available in laminate flooring will astound you. They mimic wood floors from spalted maple to traditional oak, to Brazilian cherry; to exotic teak...even bamboo. If you are looking for a stone look, you will find Vermont granite, marble and Old World slate, just to name a few. In fact, you can find something that is suitable for every interior environment and design you can think of.

Among wood selections, you will find planks looking like antique boards that are genuine hand-scraped, with a choice of finishes from warm oils, bright gloss or subtle matte.

Wood or stone looks in laminate

If you are looking to recreate Old World looks, you can find wider planks some with v-grooves and micro-beveled edges. If you want a more formal look, you will find tailored, narrow strips in maple, oak or even exotics, from contemporary to traditional. For stone, tile, and porcelain, the realism is exceptional even down to the intricate faceting; texture and embossed surfaces. Whatever the trend is in tile, laminate flooring follows. As the format changes from small to larger tiles, laminate keeps pace. With technological advances in manufacturing, laminates are impact, stain, wear, abrasion, fade and moisture resistant. They also boast anti-mold, antibacterial, sound insulation, and anti-static features. It has a very durable wear-surface which is perfect for high-traffic areas. Laminate floors are manufactured to be installed in rooms that may have higher-than-normal moisture and humidity levels. If you are looking for laminate flooring, it can offer the best value over longer term when you factor in ease of installation, cost, and durability.
