Laminate flooring is not made the same way it used to be. Laminate once had a bad rap for actually looking like fake wood or slate, but now it can be extremely difficult to tell the difference between the real thing and the imitation. Laminate is essentially made up of a high resolution image of real hardwood, tile, or travertine laminated against a core material to consist of your flooring panels.
The primary difference between laminate flooring and real hardwood floors is the price. Real hardwood floors are typically going to cost you a lot more than laminate floors. While laminate is not real, it can give you the same illusion while providing a durable and low maintenance flooring solution. If you have children or pets in the home, you may want to lean towards the idea of using laminate over real hardwood flooring because laminate is resistant to scratches, heat, and dents. Laminate flooring is also UV resistant, meaning that the flooring will not fade over time in sunlight allowing consistent coloring throughout your home.
