How Does Laminate Flooring Compare to Real Hardwood?

While laminate flooring and hardwood flooring look almost identical from the surface level, they’re constructed very differently.

 

Unlike authentic hardwood floor planks, laminate flooring is constructed using layers of composite wood. At the top is a durable finish layer that’s highly scratch, stain, and dent resistant.  For many, this feature is especially appealing, considering that “real” hardwood floors are susceptible to this type of damage, especially in a busy home.

 

Laminate floors also have a visual layer that gives the planks its hardwood look. This layer is made through high-definition photography that truly captures the natural beauty of your favorite hardwood species, such as:

 

  • Oak
  • Maple
  • Hickory
  • Pine
  • Walnut

 

When compared to natural hardwood flooring, you’ll find overall that laminate floors are much more economical, easier to maintain, and water-repellent. Some folks even prefer laminate over luxury vinyl flooring! 

 

 

 

Is Laminate Flooring Really Waterproof?

Once upon a time, laminate flooring was a “consolation prize” for those on limited budgets, but times have certainly changed, and today’s laminate floors are heavy on resilience and function.

 

 

We offer both water-resistant and waterproof laminate flooring options in our local flooring store.  Not long ago, laminate floors didn’t come with 100% waterproof protection.

 

However, with recent advances in flooring technology, there are now plenty of fully waterproof laminate choices.  Waterproof laminate flooring can be installed in bathrooms and kitchens, and it has a watertight surface that blocks out spills. Since it’s also stain-resistant and fast-drying, consider a waterproof laminate floor for homes with kids and pets.

 

 

Where Can Laminate Be Installed?

Laminate flooring is a great addition almost everywhere.

 

You can install laminate in residential and light-use commercial spaces, and it’s a great option for anywhere you want a hardwood look without the hassle and cost.

 

Some of our favorite spots for laminate flooring installation include:

 

  • Laundry Rooms
  • Kitchens
  • Bedrooms

Should I Do My Own Laminate Flooring Installation?

Yes, you sure can- but you should proceed with a bit of caution!

 

Laminate floors are simple to install, which is one of the advantages of choosing this type of floor. They’re even DIY-friendly in some cases, since many laminate floors come with an easy click-lock installation method that “floats” over your existing subfloor. Floating floors don’t require glues and other adhesives to install, and you can walk on them the same day we put your new floors in.

 

Here's the fine print, though: flooring installation isn’t a simple task you do in an afternoon. You’ll still need to clean your subfloor first, measure your room and your flooring carefully, and pay attention to every detail. OR you can choose peace of mind and work with our professional flooring installers.
