Many more advancements have been made in the world of laminate flooring since the 1990s. Nowadays, laminate flooring is nearly impossible to tell apart from the material it is meant to be mimicking. Whether that material is wood, stone, metal, or brick, it just simply looks like the real thing.
This new level of authenticity is achieved through distressed finishes, grooves, texturing, and beveling, all of which create the impression that the artificial laminate is, in fact, a piece of wood. A natural wood grain look is built directly into the laminate itself so that it not only looks real, but it even feels real under your feet.
Because of advances in technology, laminate flooring is also now more practical in terms of the actual layering process than it was in the past. The fiberboard core, which makes up the majority of the critical middle layer, is now far more advanced than it used to be, and it has become more durable, stable, and resistant to damage. The bottom layer as well, so crucial in absorbing both noise and minor bumps and pocks in the sub-flooring, is now better equipped than ever to do its job.
One of the most recent developments in the laminate flooring business is an improved level of waterproofing. Laminate floorboards have also recently become more impact-resistant, allowing them to hold up against more regular wear-and-tear as well as blunt impacts to last longer and look great while doing it.
