Whether you’re considering laminate, vinyl, or tile, you can choose among an assortment of oak looks to bring hardwood style into your home.
Oak-Look Laminate Flooring
Oak-look laminate flooring replicates the natural color, graining, and beauty of oak solid hardwood in a wood-based product that can be installed on any level of the home. Featuring a protective wear layer, it’s resistant to scratches, scuffs, stains, and fading. Easy-click installation makes it a suitable project for the DIYer. Our brands of oak-look laminate flooring reflect the latest in flooring trends, including distressed and matte finishes, and extra-wide planks.
Dream Home is our traditional laminate option, available in a wide range of oak looks. Deep brown and reddish-brown tones with glossy finishes can add a formal and elegant look to your space. At the opposite end of the design spectrum, you'll find light and airy colors with matte finishes to complement more casual and contemporary styles. Dream Home also includes options with copper-brown coloring and fine oak grain details, as well as weathered oak looks with lots of pattern variation.
Now you can get these beautiful oak designs in a waterproof laminate product. Our latest offering from Dream Home is a great solution for very active households and can also be installed in wet areas, such as bathrooms.
AquaSeal features an innovative locking technology that prevents liquids from seeping between the planks for up to 72 hours, making it a water-resistant option in laminate flooring. This flooring allows you to rest easier knowing that you have increased protection against spills and splashes.

How Do I Install Oak-Look Flooring?
How you install your oak-look flooring will depend on your product. Some options, such as peel-and-stick vinyl, are suitable for novice DIYers. Click-together flooring is also DIY-friendly. Tile is often best left to professionals or those DIYers experienced with using mortar and grout. If you are installing it yourself, be sure to space your tiles closely, stagger the seams, and use matching color grout to create a more realistic hardwood design.
How Do I Maintain My Oak-Look Flooring?
One of the benefits of oak-look flooring is that you can enjoy the appearance of hardwood in a product that may offer a higher level of wear and water resistance. Specific maintenance methods will, of course, depend on the type of flooring material you choose. In general, it’s best to clean up spills as soon as possible, even if your floor is considered water-resistant. Waterproof flooring is the easiest to maintain since it can be wet-mopped. Felt padding on your furniture legs can provide additional protection against scratches and scuffs.
What is the Most Affordable Oak-Look Flooring?
Many choose oak-look flooring over actual oak hardwood due to its lower cost. But even within our selection of oak-look designs, you'll come across a range of price points. Our vinyl and laminate options tend to be the most budget-friendly, while hybrid resilient, cork, and some porcelain tile products cost more per square foot.
