Traditional Laminate Flooring
Combine the timeless appeal of natural flooring with the design innovations of manufactured flooring by choosing traditional laminate flooring. You can choose laminate that recreates the look of wood or stone flooring at a more accessible price point. Traditional laminate flooring is usually made up of layers—a composite core, an medium-density fiberboard (MDF) core, a highly detailed decorative layer that gives the appearance of wood or stone, and a clear and tough protective layer.
Choosing the right laminate
Laminate floors are generally easy to maintain and can be used in every room of your home. If you have children or pets, a scratch-resistant laminate with a high AC rating is a smart choice. Alternatively, if you're anticipating splashes or spills, you might want to explore our water-resistant and waterproof laminate flooring.
Underlayment for traditional laminate
If you have DIY experience, you can install traditional laminate floors without the help of a professional thanks to their click-together planks. Before starting the process, however, you might want to consider installing underlayment. Underlayment can help even imperfections in the subfloor. Additionally, it can provide superior sound properties as well as comfort underfoot. So it really is a worthwhile investment when planning to install a new laminate floor.
Complete your look with laminate
Traditional laminate planks come in a wide range of different colors, finishes, and widths. Many of today's laminate floor planks look so much like classic hardwood that it can be hard to tell the difference. For a finish that most closely resembles a classic hardwood floor, choose narrow planks with an Oak, Cherry, Ash, or Pine look. For something more modern, wider planks in darker hues like Brazilian Acacia or Franciscan Walnut are certain to make a striking first impression in your home. A stone-effect finish may be a perfect choice for your kitchen or basement.
