What is laminate flooring?
All laminate flooring is made essentially the same way. The top wear layer is cellulose paper impregnated with clear melamine resins. Just below it is the design layer— a photo or pattern printed on paper and strengthened with resins. The core is usually durable fiberboard the bottom stabilizing layer is made of paper or melamine. Individual laminate pieces can look like real wood. There will be pattern repeats in the floor, though; something you won’t find in flooring made from natural wood.
