Laminate flooring provides durability, affordability and easy maintenance. This flooring type is a multi-layer synthetic flooring product fused together with a lamination process.
Laminate flooring simulates wood, tile, and stone with a photographic image layer under a clear protective layer.
Compared to porcelain tile, it offers an elegant look, without the worry; a warmer, softer feel underfoot; and easier maintenance and grout free installation.
Compared to hardwood, it offers the natural look of wood without the maintenance; up to 5x more scratch resistance; and a budget-friendly price.
Laminate flooring lets you design a beautiful look that emulates the elegance of tile or the warmth of hardwood. And waterproof options are now available.
