I was once at a holiday celebration and complimented the homeowner on her wood floors. She finally confessed that it was actually laminate!

Textured looks

Embossing enables manufacturers to create looks with machinery usually done by hand on genuine wood. These include wire-brushed, hand-scraped, and distressed.

Embossed-in-register (EIR) refers to embossing, creating little indentations to match those in the image. As a result, the best laminate flooring has the authentic look and texture of natural wood or stone.


The laminate's top wear layer is made from aluminum oxide. This provides strength and protects the material from scratches.

It also makes the product fade-resistant. However, remember that laminate flooring can't be refinished, so you should take extra precautions, such as layering an area rug in a high-traffic area.

Original laminate also has a core made from wood byproducts; therefore, it was often avoided for installation in wet areas like the kitchen or bath. A new version called waterproof laminate flooring features a non-wood construction.??

All concerns about soaking, staining, peeling edged, curling, etc., are eliminated. In addition, with this version, installing the material in any room in the house is now possible.
