Laminate flooring can provide the look of real wood without needing to be waxed or refinished, making it a great choice for active families or pet owners. It is an eco-friendly material with an outstanding palette of natural wood aesthetics to suit the style of any home or for light uses in a commercial space. Laminate floors are water resistant and great for bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms as well as office buildings, hotels, stores, and schools.
