Do you want style, durability, low maintenance, and you have a dry location? Consider laminate. It's a photograph that's been "laminated" to a backing, and as technology has advanced, so has the quality and beauty of this flooring selection. With many styles for many budgets, you have MANY choices.
This is a friendly floor – it's warm underfoot, needs little floor prep so it can be installed over almost anything (except carpet) above or below grade. It's also easy to replace a scratched or dented board when "life happens!"

Laminate is "man-made" and has 4 layers: the BACKING – gives it structural integrity & a moisture barrier; the CORE – a wood product (sawdust, wood shavings, sawmill waste) treated with resins for hardness; the PHOTOGRAPH – printed images of stone, wood, etc.; and the WEAR LAYER – some are textured, all seal the photograph and provide a hard wear surface."
