Laminate flooring is a manufactured wood-look flooring option that is made up of multiple layers. Each layer serves an important function in the overall appearance and function of the floor. These layers include:
While laminate and hardwood look almost identical at the surface level, they’re constructed very differently. Solid hardwood planks consist of a single, thick piece of hardwood. Laminate planks are created using multiple layers of composite wood. At the surface of each plank is a high-definition image of genuine hardwood. This wood-look finish features texturing that matches the grains and knots in the wood image.
Laminate flooring is more affordable than hardwood making it a great choice for those on a budget. It is also more moisture-resistant and even comes in waterproof options so you can enjoy laminate in more rooms than hardwood. Lastly, it is easier to maintain than natural hardwood since you don’t need to worry about water, scratches, and dents as much.
