Oak is traditional and timeless as a flooring species. This is partly due to its variety of shades, grain and knots, as well as partly due to its durability. However, real wood has a lot of practical disadvantages that laminate can amend, and is also durable enough to last up to 30 years, so is often a better alternative.
Laminate flooring is the best way to replicate the many versatile oak looks. It allows for a texture to be implemented, and the finish to be added to perfect similarity due to image technology used. Unlike vinyl, the feel is also more realistic underfoot, as vinyl is cushioned. Vinyl can also appear shiny and obviously ingenuine, making laminate the closest option.
Laminate allows that realistic oak look and feel to be added to your home, but without the large price tag of solid or engineered wood. This makes it excellent for those on a budget who aren't concerned about adding value to their home or staying there long term. Our longest guarantee on laminates is 30 years, so this flooring is ideal for those who are planning to move out soon, or are just renting before settling down elsewhere.
Practically, laminate is better in terms of being able to handle moisture, humidity and changes in temperature. This makes it more suitable for bathrooms, kitchens, and conservatories, and is overall a more versatile flooring option as a result. You can add the oak effect to places where normally you would struggle to find this, giving you freedom to create the atmosphere you want in any room in your home.
Laminate allows you to capture the grain and shade of oak without the impracticality and environmental impact. They also don't scratch as easily or acquire dents like real wood does, meaning that timeless classic appearance you have paid for will last a long time without needing sanding or refinishing.
