Laminate Flooring Texture

Many types of laminate flooring looks like real hardwood! To achieve rustic or authentic looks, a certain amount of texture is used to get a desired look.
  • Smooth Finish – gives a subtle yet shiny finish to the flooring. It reflects some light but does not overpower the room with a glossy feel.
