So what exactly is laminate?
Laminate flooring is a product made by layering a sheet of decorative material over either particle board or a synthetic base. The decorative top layer can be made to look very realistically like wood, stone or tiles and can be embossed by machine or textured by hand to add more texture and realism. Usually the laminate is coated to add greater protection to the surface, making it a superb flooring option for today’s busy, modern family.
