And if the “plank” look interests you, many hardwood plank designs are offered in laminate, including rare, exotic wood species.
Laminate stone and tile patterns will give you the elegant look of tile, but without the concerns of grout cleaning or cracking tile. Something you might want to consider.
And if yours is a busy household or a home with children, a durable, low maintenance product like laminate flooring is a great choice for your active lifestyle.
Because laminate flooring is stain resistant, it doesn’t need to be varnished or waxed. A good thing to know.
Laminate floors are also less likely to fade in direct sunlight, unlike aging hardwood floors.
And don’t worry if you feel a little unfamiliar with this product. Laminate floors are relatively new to this country, but have been used in Europe for more than 25 years.
