Laminate Flooring

Laminate flooring is a popular hardwood alternative choice for budget-conscious homeowners.  Laminate wood floors replicate the look of hardwood species, grains, coloring, and tight tongue-and-groove locking systems to create the realistic appearance and feel of solid hardwood floors. 

Some of the advantages of choosing laminate flooring for your home are: 
  • Durability: Laminate floors are durable while being both pet-friendly and family-friendly in high-traffic areas. 
  • Tough Finish Layer: The top layer is treated to protect the laminate floor from fading, stains, and wear. 
  • Cost Effective: Laminate floors are a great hardwood alternative for budget-conscious homeowners.
Empire Today’s personalized in-home service eliminates the hassle of visiting numerous stores by bringing samples to you. With at-home service, you can see how flooring will look after installation in your home’s natural interior lighting and various room settings.

Why You Should See Laminate Floor Samples at Home

The color and richness of laminate floor samples will look different in your home than they do in a home improvement store. The harsh lighting that is found in most stores is very different from the natural light of your home. Store lighting is typically a harsh fluorescent, which can alter the color and appearance of laminate flooring. 
For this reason, Empire® brings samples right to your home so you won’t have to guess what your laminate floor color will look like in your home’s lighting. Here’s an example of the difference lighting can make:
