For those that want appealing and stunning floors, but do not want to pay an arm and a leg for it, there is Laminate flooring. Pushing price to the side there are actual benefits to Laminate flooring. It is easier to install than most hard surface flooring and is more scratch-resistant than vinyl and hard woods. Factoring in the price and the fact that your guest would be politely baffled is the fact that it isn’t hardwood they are standing on. It really makes laminate flooring something to consider!
