Oak laminate flooring combines the traditional look of hardwood oak with the lasting value and easy cleaning of laminate. Laminate is made from particle board topped with a photograph of wood grain to make it look like hard wood. Unlike hardwood oak flooring, laminate snaps or glues together, depending on its type. This makes laminate a popular choice among do-it-yourselfers.
Traditional oak hardwood comes in two varieties: white and red. (Red oak is more popular, though white is more durable.) Oak laminate flooring, however, is made in thousands of colors and styles to match the variety of finishes that can be created with stains and other treatments. Some have a straight grain, while others come with a varied pattern of rays and flecks.
Oak laminate flooring comes in as many styles and species as real hardwood. For that reason, it can be tricky to choose the perfect floor for your home. Let the experts at Floor Coverings International in Chicago IL make the search easier. Contact us today to schedule your free in-home estimate.
