Laminate flooring is a durable and inexpensive alternative to hardwood floors, especially in high traffic areas in your home.  Laminate has become a very popular choice as it comes in an array of colors and grades, from traditional to contemporary  to rustic and distressed.  It’s a fiber core board with a photo on top, so you can get any desired look you want – and it has come so far that most people can’t tell the difference anymore between laminate and real wood!
