Sometimes it is so hard in choosing whether it is better to go with hardwood flooring or with laminate wood flooring since both of them is similar. But of course both are different if you ask me. If hardwood flooring is made of real wooden material, the laminate flooring is made of many layers of things which are finished/ ended with one thin layer of real wood at the top. Yes, laminate flooring has the look of hardwood flooring indeed, but it has better performance against the elements/ moist since it is laminated/ coated which also makes laminate flooring more durable to scratches.
Laminate wood flooring; *durable to elements and moist, *easy installation, *easy maintenance (cleaning), *has the look of hardwood flooring, *durable scratches, *not sandable and cannot be refinished, *not real wood materials, *slippery, *heavy on foot
Hardwood flooring; *prestige of real wood, *feels good on foot, *not slippery, *sandable and can be refinished, *quite expensive/ costly, *more vulnerable to scratches, *not durable to elements especially moist.
But of course everyone has different thought on something which is why even thought the laminate wood flooring seems wining over the hardwood flooring, people who respect originality will still go with hardwood flooring. But the fact that hardwood flooring is made of all original wooden material might make it even more expensive and that is when the laminate wood flooring comes to save the day. Not only that, the laminate wood flooring is available in various gradation of wood grain color which is surely a great fact which will give homeowners wider option in choosing the ones which fit their homes the best. But after all, the decision is in your hands right? Just ask yourself which one that you want more, the hardwood or the laminate wood flooring.
