Laminate Flooring Edge Types
Laminate flooring is an affordable way to achieve the authentic look of real hardwood floors in your home. The finishing touch to getting that real wood plank look is how the product edges are finished. Every style of Laminate flooring we offer comes with either a beveled edge or a micro-beveled edge.
A beveled edge is a grooved edge that offers a distinct line between each plank, making it look like the real thing. The micro-beveled edge features a less pronounced grooved edge giving you a more subtle definition from plank to plank. Selecting either edge style is a win-win for you because you get the character of a wood floor paired with the durability of laminate.
If you choose to install the flooring on your own, either edge allows for an easier installation. The slightly rounded edge is more forgiving if there are imperfections in your subfloor than a straight edged plank would be.
And there you have it! Now that you are ready to add a refreshed design element to your home, consider laminate as an affordable and natural looking option.
