Laminate floors were originally designed as an affordable option to hardwood floors
Nowadays, laminates can look like real wood, marble, stone and cork. Laminates are practically indestructible, require very little maintenance, and can be installed over many sub floors.
Laminate flooring can be used in living rooms, bedrooms, hallways, kitchens, bathrooms, foyers, basements, media rooms, basically anywhere you need an affordable hard surface.
