Laminate floors come in planks and can be installed as a glue-down or floating floor, depending on the specific product. Manufactured as a composite material, laminate flooring is very durable and comes in a wide array of styles, making it a favorite choice among interior designers. Laminate flooring simulates the appearance of real wood, tile, or stone. Some of the most expensive treatments in hardwood, like hand-scraped wood or distressed barnwood, become very affordable alternatives in a laminate floor.
Carpet Weaver’s offers some of the industry’s best laminate flooring brands, including Mohawk RevWood laminate flooring – combining the beauty of hardwood with the toughness of laminate! Click on a laminate brand logo below to see more products:

What is Laminate Flooring Made Of?
While every manufacturer has their own proprietary composition of laminate flooring, it typically consists of four layers:
- Wear Layer: The top layer is a transparent wear layer that protects the flooring from stains, scratches, and fading. It is made of a melamine resin or aluminum oxide, providing excellent durability.
- Design Layer: This layer features a high-resolution photographic image that mimics the appearance of natural materials like wood, stone, or tile. The image is printed onto a decorative paper layer.
- Core Layer: The core layer is made of a high-density fiberboard (HDF) or medium-density fiberboard (MDF), providing stability and strength to the flooring.
- Backing Layer: The bottom layer provides stability and moisture resistance. It is usually made of melamine or resin.
