Laminate Style Options
More often than not, laminate flooring is found in what's known as a 1-strip plank, which means each board is made to look like a single piece of wood. Single plank boards look amazing in larger rooms and give a very authentic appeal.
Multi Strip Planks
If you're looking for something a little different, laminate floors can also be produced as multi-strip boards, which look like several small planks on a single board. Multi-strip boards are useful for making small rooms feel bigger than they are.
Unlike real wood floors, laminate can be shaped like tiles and made to look just like stone or ceramic. This is ideal if you want the look of tiles without the cold, brittle materials traditionally used, as laminate floors take on the ambient temperature of the room they're laid in.
