Most are drawn, right away, to the fact that laminate so closely resembles the look of real solid hardwood flooring. From the stain color to the finish options and textures, most of your guests will feel sure they are walking on the real thing. This adds the same classically elegant look that real wood does. At the same time, it does not have the hefty maintenance schedule that goes along with it.
Durability is a very important feature for any floor covering, and laminate certainly won’t leave you lacking in this area. Thanks to a wear layer on top, that is available in a variety of thicknesses, you’ll see fewer scuffs and scratches, less fading from direct sunlight exposure, and less general wear and tear over time. For busier homes, a thicker wear layer is suggested.
Its construction is such that it offers stability as well, and can help to even out spots in your flooring that are less than smooth. The click and lock system allows for quick installation of this “floating floor” and helps to provide a nice atmosphere in the least amount of time.
