Technology has advanced and has made manufacturing and digital printing far more sophisticated, allowing laminate to replicate the authentic looks of hardwood.

Laminate vs Hardwood
Like hardwood, laminate comes in planks that mimic the look of wood. Although laminate not have the same characteristics or bring the same value, they will still make your home look more sophisticated.
Like engineered hardwood, laminate features a layered construction and are backed by strong support layers, and can handle heavy foot traffic and other impacts better than wood. Laminate planks resist chipping and cracking, and they also won't buckle when exposed to moisture. Laminate is not a waterproof option but it is more water resistant than wood. Laminate flooring also features a durable top layer that resists most scratches and scuffs. Unlike hardwood flooring, you do not need to finish laminate and it is very easy to care for.
