Many homeowners are finding laminate flooring to be a sensible and economical option when installing new wood floors. Laminate flooring is designed to look like a natural product, such as wood or stone, but offers greater durability and affordability than solid wood due to its construction. Laminate floors are lower-maintenance than hardwood floors and don’t require waxing, oiling, or staining. Manufacturers continue to roll out new laminate designs, so homeowners today have more options than ever in laminate wood floors, allowing them to get the look they want without sacrificing durability, or breaking the bank.

Here are 5 hot new trends in laminate flooring:

  • White Washed Looks: This coastal-inspired design offers a beach cottage look and feel, with a rustic, natural finish in a stylish “new” quality.
  • High Gloss Finishes: Get the same high-gloss finish typically found on a beautiful grand piano. Microbeveled edges highlight the chic finish and provide a natural look with high shine.
  • Handscraped Looks: The elegance of wood with the characteristics of the imperfect, rustic look typically found in handscraped solid wood floors, but with the durability of laminate.
  • Earthy Tones: Natural looks in soft tones provide a delicate, elegant touch with the look and feel of real wood.
