Instead of solid wood, laminate flooring is constructed from composite wood joined together at high temperatures, after which it is laminated again with the image of hardwood. This is beneficial for a number of reasons - mainly that the use of composite wood generally means that both the cost of materials and installation are much cheaper, helping you to save money when it comes to putting your floor in.
However, just because laminate flooring is a cost-effective option, doesn't mean that it should be seen as an inferior option. Laminate flooring is also extremely durable and resistant to scratching and staining, as well as distortion from moisture or heat. This makes it perfect for rooms with rapidly changing conditions, such as kitchens or bathrooms.
