Laminate was originally introduced as the budget sensitive alternative to hardwood flooring. At first, it was obvious that laminate was not the most authentic alternative to hardwood. Advances in manufacturing and digital technology have transformed laminate. Our selection of laminate will surprise you as to how close it resembles hardwood and tile floors.
Laminate vs Hardwood
There are many obvious differences between laminate and hardwood. Hardwood is a natural flooring option whereas laminate is made with man-made materials. Due to this construction, laminate is a budget friendly option. Unlike hardwood flooring, laminate planks do not have to be refinished, and are resistant to dents and scratches. Digital printing technology has come a long way, and even though laminate cannot provide the same value as hardwood, it delivers aesthetic value.
Laminate may not be waterproof, but it is more resistant to humidity and moisture than hardwood. That means laminate can be installed in several different rooms around your home, and they can handle an active family. Laminate floors are ideal for families with pets and children in their home because the surface is scratch resistant and wear resistant.
Where Can Laminate Be Installed?
Laminate floors can be installed in more rooms around your home than hardwood can. For example, laminate floors are a great choice for kitchens, living rooms, and hallways. Since digital technology has advanced, laminate looks more like hardwood than ever, so no one will be able to tell the difference unless you tell them. Laminate is available in a floating floor, which means no adhesives are needed during the installation process, and it is easy to replace individual planks when needed.
