What are some texture trends in laminate flooring?
Laminate is an excellent alternative to the natural materials it mimics. Four layers are bonded together during the lamination process to create the wood and tile look floor covering. Because of the fiberboard core layer, the flooring is always warm underfoot. The image layer can have a textured appearance that ranges from smooth and subtle to deep and noticeable. L&L Flooring Company is a laminate flooring store in Nashville, Tennessee that offers many laminate styles.
Light to heavy
Embossing adds texture to laminate flooring. Choose wire-brushed planks to get light texturing or subtle embossing that has a refined yet vintage appearance. This technique can also enrich granite and other smooth stone look tiles. Medium to heavy embossing is used to intensify the look of handscraped wood and the rough texture of cleft stones like slate. Those who favor modern and sophisticated flooring may prefer smooth laminate planks or tiles. This no-texture flooring is designed to resemble polished woods, ceramic, and stones like marble.
Embossed in Register
Top-of-the-line laminate plank flooring is given the most authentic look with Embossed in Register technology. Standard embossing adds random texturing to planks as well as tiles. Embossed in Register planks include texturing that matches the grain pattern on the wood image layer. Like all textured laminate, this flooring is pet-friendly, water-resistant, slip-resistant, easy to clean, and comfortable to walk on.
