Laminate was originally introduced to the market as an affordable alternative to hardwood flooring for those who were on a budget. The first laminate styles definitely could not be mistaken for hardwood. Today’s technology has made laminate look more realistic than ever before. Our selection of laminates will surprise you as to how close they resemble hardwood , and even tile, floors.
Laminate vs Hardwood Flooring
Laminate flooring is the best option if you are looking for a realistic wood look floor that fits your budget. Laminate is made with man-made products, which makes it significantly less expensive than hardwood or stone. Compared to hardwood, dents and scratches are less likely to occur with laminate. Another major benefit is that laminate floors do not need to be sealed or refinished.
Although laminate flooring cannot add the dollar value hardwood does, it still delivers visual value. Digital printing technology has come a long way and visuals are more realistic than ever. Laminate floors are less expensive in both material and labor costs as opposed to hardwood.
Laminate flooring can be installed in the same rooms around your home as engineered hardwood. That means you can have laminate flooring in bedrooms, living rooms, and even in your kitchen. You can also install laminate flooring in spaces with a lot of traffic like hallways and entryways.
Most laminate options come as a floating floor, which means no adhesives are required during installation. A benefit of floating floors is that it is easier to replace if you change your flooring as compared to a glued down product which can require a lot of labor. Floating floors are fast and easy to install, and you can walk on them the same day.
