Laminate is a multi-layered product, and one of those is the printed design sheet. High-quality laminate should have clear and vibrant images, with knots, swirls, grains, and veining variations; images should have depth, dimension, and textured features, all created with micro beveling and embossing. This product follows the trends and is available in an almost unlimited number of colors and patterns and can also be cut into planks to mimic hardwood boards or squares for stone and tile echoes. Many feel the extra seams add to the realism.
This flooring is suitable for heavily trafficked floors with a top, strong, clear, aluminum oxide wear layer that protects the floor from scratches, scuffs, dents, and sun fading. While cores come in various materials, the best is HDF (high-density fiberboard) which is stable and more water-resistant. Always try to buy the best your budget will allow.
We know you all lead busy lives with little time to scrub floors, and this requires daily sweeping and periodic mopping.

It can be placed over most subfloors, including concrete, and is compatible with radiant underfloor heating systems; always check with the flooring expert to be sure you select the best version.
