Laminate flooring is an excellent low cost alternative to hardwood flooring and engineered wood flooring that actually looks like a real wood flooring. Laminate floors are attractive and easy to maintain, a popular option in apartments, rental homes, busy residential spaces, and even as commercial flooring options. Laminate wood flooring goes together in an easy click-lock installation making an easy to install floor for any DIY level. Where wood floors can be a lot of maintenance and a pain in the butt to install, wood laminate flooring is a piece of cake. Wood floors typically cannot be installed below ground, but laminate is safe for anywhere in the home.
