Laminate Flooring Surface Patterns

Laminate flooring can imitate almost any type of flooring style because of its photographic applique layer. Laminate flooring often simulates hardwood flooring and can be produced for almost any wood species. These include popular domestic woods like oak and maple to exotic hardwoods like Brazilian Cherry, Brazilian Teak and Tigerwood. Laminate flooring is available in several surface patters which further helps laminate look like the floor it is trying to imitate.

Smooth laminate flooring is just like it sounds. This is a flat, smooth surface free of any texture.

Hand–scraped or distressed laminate will give the appearance of an aged floor which is often ideal for a rustic décor. Hand–scraped hardwood floors are done by hand and done by machine for laminate flooring.

Embossed laminate floors have a raised pattern which is meant to achieve the same raised pattern found naturally in hardwood and stone. The embossed pattern, which is achieved under heat and pressure, provides resistance to slipping.

Patina laminate is achieved when a thin coat of paint is applied to embossed laminate and then wiped away. The result produces a weathered patina which leaves an antique appearance.

If you are thinking about installing laminate flooring, be sure to ask about the different surface patterns available. Remember not all laminate floors are manufactured with the same materials and process and often price does match quality. And while laminate flooring may look like real wood, it’s actually a very different product. Be sure to visit our section on laminate floor care for proper cleaning and maintenance.

Laminate flooring really is a great choice. I put it down a few weeks ago and it went perfect, and people love how it looks.

Thanks for the blog posts
