Technology gets all the credit for laminates claiming their place among one of the most popular types of flooring on the market today. The variations in colours, textures, plank format, that technology makes possible, keeps laminates in running with the latest trends in hard wood and engineered hardwood flooring.
Here are some of the great looks you can achieve with this durable, wallet friendly flooring:
The Rustic Look:
We know this trend is here to stay (see our blog on rustic hardwood ), so you can’t go wrong with this style of flooring. Planks that have saw marks and/or the rich texture of hand scraped wood adds character and warmth to any room. The colours, styles, and plank sizes available give flexibility for designing the exact look you are going for!
The Exotic Look
The breathtaking beauty of exotic woods are captured in laminate flooring as well. The unique wood grain patterns and shades of colour that make these tropical species distinctive and quite frankly stunning are carefully crafted in laminate flooring products, giving any room that wow factor and unique style.
The Look of Reclaimed Wood
This popular flooring, inspired by the movement towards environmental responsibility, repurposes wood from old barns, warehouses, homesteads, and even from canals! Laminates are designed to highlight the appeal of this wood that has stood the test of the time, exposing the warm hues of colour and the feel of wood shaped through practical use over time. Again, the variety of plank widths and lengths, contributes to the natural look of this style of flooring.
The Weathered Look
The best way to describe this type of flooring is to imagine the beauty and complexity of driftwood. Exposure to the sun and sea and layers of wood are gently exposed revealing subtle depths of colour. This type of flooring can give a room both that beach house feel as well as sophistication and elegance – a truly versatile choice!
