Laminate and Solid Wood Flooring

A real wood floor is a thing of beauty and can come in many varieties, with different styles, finishes, patterns and materials, meaning there should be something for every taste. Such floors can also come in solid wood and engineered wood types, which offer different attributes and will suit different situations. Oak Flooring is one of the more popular types of wood in this range. Bamboo Flooring, is a new age hardwood that many people are using, it is a greener more sustainable option that also provides some different qualities to normal wood, it is moisture-resistant but is very durable like other hardwoods.
Laminate flooring is not actually real flooring but looks like it, with the appearance being provided by a photographic image of wood. This is placed on top of a core board made of compressed fibres and the material is covered in a melamine wear layer, which is what gives laminate flooring its famed toughness. It is less likely to scratch than wood and easy to clean, making it ideal for a crowded and busy house.
