At Panhandle Carpet One Floor & Home, we want you to know that today’s laminate has dramatically improved in its feel and appearance. Nowadays, when you step onto a wood-look laminate floor, you probably won’t be able to tell that it’s not real hardwood. Plus, our laminate flooring features a gorgeous natural appearance that’s incredibly realistic and difficult to distinguish from real ceramic and stone.

Laminate flooring has certainly changed over the years. Today, laminate is primarily manufactured from a collection of pressed wood fibers and a top “wear layer” made of resin. Finally, a decorative layer is made using a high-definition image of a natural wood plank beneath a tough protective wear layer. This construction creates dimensional stability and prevents each plank from warping.
If you’ve been dreaming of having solid hardwood flooring throughout your home, you can now make this a reality with laminate flooring. While natural solid hardwood planks will always add value to any space, they should never be installed in areas with high moisture. And if you’re looking to get that classic feel with solid hardwood, laminate is a great solution if you want a wood-look floor without the hassle and cost.
