A Floor that Actually Looks Like

Today’s laminate floors are so authentic-looking it is difficult to tell the difference between genuine hardwood and laminate. It comes in many types of wood species like Brazilian cherry, acacia, oak, and maple, and in a variety of plank widths. To add to the realism, wood laminate flooring comes in a variety of finishes, from smooth, to textured, distressed, and hand scraped. Plus, laminate can handle scratches and wear better than hardwood, making it a top-choice for busy homes.

WHY CHOOSE Wood Laminate Flooring?

Highly Durable

Laminate floors are resistant to most scratches, stains, wear, and fading – making them durable enough for even the busiest households.

Easy to Clean

Simply sweep up dirt and spills and clean with a slightly dampened mop or laminate floor cleaning solution to help keep laminate wood floors looking great. Wood laminate flooring never needs waxing and is designed to keep its attractive finish with minimal maintenance.

Great for Any Room

Wood laminate floors can be installed in areas where hardwood floors typically cannot, like basements and over concrete slabs. Plus, some wood laminate floors are 100% waterproof, making them ideal for kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry rooms.

100% Waterproof Protection

100% Waterproof Protection

Unlike other laminate floors on the market, Empire® offers select laminate floors that are waterproof. This innovative technology allows the floor to tolerate ordinary splashes, spills, and even condensation from showers. You can get the wood-look floor you want in your kitchen, bathrooms, and even your whole house, without worrying about dampness, moisture, or flat out wetness ruining your wood floor.



Homeowners with pets can enjoy the wood look and worry less with laminate wood floors. The scratch and wear resistance help to protect wood laminate flooring from pets’ nails damaging the surface – however it’s still recommended to keep pets’ nails trimmed. And because wood laminate floors are easy to clean and resistant to most stains, pet accidents can easily be wiped up with a damp mop.

What is Laminate Wood Flooring?

Laminate wood flooring is a durable flooring option that contains four different layers that are fused together with intense heat and pressure. The bottom layer is called the backing or stabilizing layer, giving the flooring strength and stability. Next is the core layer, comprised of premium high-density fiberboard (HDF) that provides support and stress from foot traffic. The third layer is the decorative, high-quality photorealistic wood image. The top layer is the wear layer, that helps protect the floors from wear and tear and also can provide texture to give it a realistic wood feel.
