One of the most sought after amenitites in a home is wood flooring. Because of its natural appearance and warmth underfoot, wood is beautiful and timeless. When it comes to choosing flooring material, many homeowners choose laminate flooring because of its durability and resemblance to real wood. High gloss laminate flooring is a particularly attractive option because of its high shine finish.
However this type of flooring is not without its drawbacks. Original hardwood floors are among the benefits of older traditional homes. Newer homes that have a lower price point but that still want the natural look of wood often use laminate to win over homebuyers.
No matter your preference, there are pros and cons when it comes to hardwood versus laminate wood flooring.
