In grandma's time, the laminate flooring finish came in either matte or shiny. Luckily, those days are long gone, and you can select among a wide variety of surface finishes. From the looks-like-it's-wet appearance, to the darkest-opaque-matte look, there are lots of finishes to choose from!
Laminate flooring comes in an array of shapes and sizes, so you can pick which slat, plank, or tile would work in your home. When looking through all that laminate, you'll also notice that you can have your planks in varying widths and thicknesses.
