Laminate flooring, unlike hardwood, features special layered constructions. The top layer is called the wear layer, and it is specially made to resist virtually all scratches, scuffs, and surface blemishes. Laminate's wear layer is much stronger than any hardwood surface, and it never needs to be refinished. Next, laminate flooring has a decorative layer that is protected by the wear layer. The decorative layer features a high-definition image of wood, providing laminate flooring with its authentic look. It's also worth noting that there are laminate flooring options with textured surfaces that perfectly match the wood pattern.
Most laminate flooring isn’t considered waterproof, but still has reliable moisture resistance. Minor splashes need to be wiped away in a reasonable timeframe, but otherwise won’t cause significant problems. A more recent innovation, waterproof laminates are a wonderful solution to everyday challenges.
