What is the difference between a WOOD FLOOR and a LAMINATE FLOOR.
A Wood floor is just that, it is made out of wood. A laminate floor can look and feel just like a real wood floor but it is really a picture or photograph of a wood floor. Laminate is certainly an enviromental option--it is a photo of a tree, and not the real tree. When you look at a laminate floor you will see the pattern repeat, whereas on a real wood floor these marks would be totally random. The frequency of the pattern that is printed onto a laminate floor can be repeated every third or fourth board, but in some cases all boards are identical in appearance.
