Best Laminate Flooring Selection in Royal Oak, MI

Laminate flooring has come a long way over the years, and for homeowners looking to attain a wood, tile, or stone look in their home on a budget, laminate is your answer. At Main Floor Carpet One Floor & Home in Royal Oak, Michigan, we are proud to offer durable flooring that fits your personal style, needs, and budget. What makes laminate a favorite among homeowners is that it is water-repellent, scratch and scuff-resistant, and stain-resistant. In addition, laminate flooring is created with high-resolution imaging that provides the natural details of wood and stone.


Styles of Laminate Flooring


Laminate flooring offers a diversity of styles and patterns to fit both residential and commercial settings. It's made to mirror a wide array of natural hardwood species, such as mahogany, oak, and hickory. You can even choose wood look laminate planks with different finishes, from glossy to matte. Low gloss floors tend to hide minor surface marks or scratches better than high gloss options.



You'll also find laminate tiles shaped and textured just like real ceramic, porcelain, and stone. This type of flooring is amazing when it comes to incorporating the design characteristics of premium flooring at a reasonable price. We also carry waterproof laminate that's ultra-durable, giving you top performance features at an affordable price.


Laminate vs. Hardwood

While from the surface laminate wood floors and natural hardwood look virtually the same, they're constructed very differently. Today's manufacturing processes have incorporated distinctive graining patterns with authentic textures into laminate's decorative veneer. While solid wood is made from a single continuous piece of genuine hardwood, laminate has layers of composite wood. This layered construction actually creates better dimensional stability, making laminate less likely to warp with exposure to moisture, humidity, and heavy foot traffic.



There are also various laminate plank widths and sizes for a dramatic effect on your home. Something to consider when selecting plank widths: the wider planks work great in large areas, but narrow planks help make smaller rooms look more expansive.


Laminate Installation


Compared to real hardwood, tile, or stone, laminate installation is simple and fast. We offer both snap lock flooring and glue-down options. With high-traffic areas, such as the front entry, family room, or kitchen, it's worth the time to preview and prepare the existing flooring before installing the laminate. These areas have changing temperatures, light, and humidity that can affect the installation of the best laminate flooring.



In some areas, the underlayment provides a barrier from any moisture between the subfloor and the laminate. It also levels an existing subfloor, adding a firming factor to older subfloors and giving a sense of real wood or stone when you walk on it. Molding adds a finishing touch, especially when a large area opens or connects to an adjoining room.
