Have you always had questions regarding laminate flooring? Invision Hardwood & Décor is here to answer all of them in our frequently asked questions series.

What Is the Difference Between Laminate Flooring and Hardwood Flooring?

While laminate flooring and hardwood flooring may appear similar, they are very different. Laminate flooring is made of materials that are bonded together under high pressure. Typical laminate flooring consists of a moisture resistant layer of high density fiberboard that is topped by a high resolution photograph image of natural wood flooring or other patterns.

On the other hand, hardwood flooring is real wood that is designed to show a specific grain or style and tends to last much longer if it is properly cared for. However, hardwood flooring is a lot more expensive than laminate flooring and it requires a careful homeowner who is willing to care for it.

How Does Laminate Flooring Lock Together?

Laminate flooring is easily connected by snapping pieces together. The snap edge is quickly connected to other pieces and the entire process is easy to complete, even for a beginner.

What Rooms Can I Install Laminate Flooring?

Laminate flooring works in any room because it is affordable and durable. Due to the high density fiberboard, this type of flooring is capable of standing up to scratches, moisture, and other issues. In addition, laminate flooring consists of many different styles that are suitable for living rooms, kitchens, bathrooms, and more. Check out a style guide and see for yourself.
