There are minor color variations that range from dark brown to orange but the most constant tint is the reddish brown one. Due this color range it allows for various combinations of furniture and flooring. Because of the hardness of this type of flooring, it is not easy to shape, cut, or sand. This will affect how the wood can be worked so it is recommended that for cutting and installing these flooring planks you should hire a professional skilled in such flooring.
Laminate floors -Laminate floors are floating floors. Laminate is fake - it looks like hardwood, but its not - its a digital picture of hardwood and it clicks together. (There are also versions that look like tile) One of the advantage of laminate is that is less expensive than hardwood - both material-wise and labor-wise and it can often be placed on top of existing flooring without needing to rip it up, so this saves more money in labor.
Given the definition, there are many types of floating floors as youll see below, so anytime someone tells me they want or think they need a floating floor, I need to dig a little deeper to make sure Im understanding their wants and needs because there are many types of floating floors. (Plus sometimes someone tells me they need a floating floor and when I get to their house I discover that they dont need a floating floor).
You cannot refinish or sand it so if it becomes scratched, chipped, or starts to peak in the corners you have to replace it. Although laminate flooring is hard it still makes noise when someone walks on it. The one disadvantage it has over wood flooring is that it has a shorter life span and could lower the resale value of your home. Even if you are experiencing problems with your laminate flooring, some things can be done to overcome these problems. When installing laminate flooring make sure that you do not use it in the basement, laundry areas, or bathroom.
