Yes, you can get marble, slate, travertine, terrazzo, quartz, and limestone looks with laminate flooring. Although laminate's often associated with hardwood, stone looks are flying out our door. People tell us it's because it has such an authentic hard surface feeling that makes you think you're walking on stone.
Four layers fused together
First, we need to settle this in all your minds because everyone seems confused about laminate. So here's what it is: a backing, core, printed design layer with a top clear, protective coating that guards against scratches, scuffs, and spills.
The design layer consists of life-like images of wood, stone, and tile, all taken with high definition photography, with micro beveling and embossing to add depth, dimension, raised grains, veining variations, and textures wire-brushed, hand scraped, weathered, and distressed. It comes with a wide variety of colors and patterns, so it fits into any style, whether the room is traditional or cool and contemporary.
It can be cut into planks or square, tiled-sized pieces; many think the extra seams add realism. So if you haven't seen it lately, feel free to come into our laminate flooring store to see what you’ve been missing.
The bottom line is this: technological innovations such as better seaming, high definition photography, and deep embossing makes this product look more and more authentic.
