Today’s laminate floors are more advanced than ever. Extremely scratch and moisture resistant, many homeowners are using a high-quality laminate floor in high traffic areas that were traditionally covered with hardwood. The foyer, for instance, has a tendency to get scratched from the dirt and debris that is tracked in by shoes and pets. Laminate is much better than natural wood at resisting such harsh conditions. Ask a Lux consultant to give you the “Lux Laminate 101” to see if you should consider laminate over hardwood.
