Laminate flooring is a great choice for active areas of the home. The laminate industry has dramatically improved over the last few years and it is becoming increasingly more difficult to distinguish laminate flooring from real natural wood and tile flooring. Laminate flooring is not just offered in wood plank designs, many manufacturers offer a wide range of colors in realistic stone, slate and tile designs with grout lines.
Laminate flooring is often confused with real engineered hardwood flooring. Engineered wood floors are constructed totally from real wood plies that are laminated together. Where as, laminate flooring consist of some type of fiber core body with a photographic print layer and a clear top coating of melamine resins.
There many advantages to laminate flooring. Laminate floors can give you realistic looking ceramic or stone tile appearances without the hassle of having to clean soiled grout joints and is far less costly to install. Also, if you are concerned with upkeep of a wood floor (especially with large pets) than a laminate floor may be your answer. If you are concerned with tearing up your old floor than a floating laminate floor may be a great alternative for you.
