Why choose laminate?

Laminate flooring adds sophisticated style—amazingly realistic hardwood and stone looks—to your home for less.

Mohawk laminate flooring is easy to install and easy to maintain, making it a great choice for the way you live—and for your budget. And it’s an environmentally friendly flooring option, often being made with recycled materials and requiring no harvesting of rare trees. Now, you can have styles that are as environmentally responsible as they are beautiful.

Fresh style. We carry laminate styles that embrace the latest trends. Add a light wood-look laminate in shades of white and gray to lighten up any space with an open, airy feel. Or try a natural stone look to create buzz-worthy flooring.
Serious durability. You can put the visual you love in even the trickiest areas—foyers, hallways, high-traffic areas and in-between spaces. Direct pressure laminate surfaces are virtually immune to spills, scuffs, stains and fading. You can install laminate floors over dry concrete, wooden subfloors and many floor types. Its low clearance space height helps in older homes with floor thickness issues. Your Mohawk laminate floors are exceptionally durable and provide worry-free assurance that the floor you love won’t lose its looks.

Easy maintenance. As we mentioned, laminate flooring options realistically emulate the look and feel of hardwood at a lower price point. Did we add that your laminate floors will clean in a snap? That’s right, maintenance is quick and easy. Just clean with a vacuum, a damp cloth and most household cleaners.

Choosing laminate flooring

When comparing laminate flooring to hardwood, several advantages come to light. Laminate flooring costs less than hardwood. Regarding thickness and design, laminate has a wider range of finishes, patterns, and colors from which to choose. As far as structure goes, laminate resists abrasions and moisture better than hardwood. When compared to natural stone tiles, laminate planks and tiles are easier to cut. Some simple tools and basic skills can make installing laminate a do-it-yourself project.

There is no such thing as the perfect product. When choosing laminate flooring, assess what is present in the home. Traffic, lighting fixtures, furniture, and wall color are all things to consider. If the renovation or redesign is more than just one room, a theme is worth considering. There can be a centralized theme or a theme for each area or room. Designs and patterns affect what you want to achieve.


The laminate color is very important. Color pulls a room together. Similar to the ceiling, laminate covers every inch of a room's floor. On laminate, you walk in and out. The color provides the overall feel of a room or home.

There is nothing wrong with sticking to traditional neutrals and whites. However, a home should reflect your preferences and personality. Before making a color choice, consider the available lighting. If limited light comes into a room, lighter, softer tones work best. Ample natural light allows more dramatic, darker hues to be used. Colors can also be used to make the appearance of the room size expand or shrink.

Existing furniture & expected traffic

Existing furniture helps in considering the best laminate for the floor. Redwood furnishings or maple fixtures, paired with laminate flooring, can have a flare or a contradiction that is pulled together with an added rug. Contemporary designers tend to use light tones. Darker tones give a more traditional feel. Neutrals add a rustic touch.

Expected traffic also influences a laminate floor choice. AC rating help makes the decision. Products with a 3 AC rating are recommended for moderate commercial or heavy residential traffic.
