There’s a lot to love about laminate flooring. Laminates reflect light to transform smaller rooms into lighter, more open spaces. The high-sheen of gloss laminate can add elegance to any room. They also provide a spill-and splash-resistant surface due to the gloss coating. This makes cleaning up spills easy. High-gloss laminate flooring is also affordable and  incredibly simple to install.

Laminate flooring is a lot more unforgiving with dirt, smudges, and scratches from everyday wear and tear. The reflective surface highlights imperfections and wear, which means they need to be cleaned more frequently due to the increased visibility of dust and dirt. That’s why our high-gloss flooring features a tough lacquer layer that strengthens the defense against the wear and tear that usually impacts high-gloss flooring.

Matte flooring brings a natural, rustic warmth to a space. It absorbs and diffuses light, so color consistency is more apparent throughout the space. Matte-finish laminate floors are resistant to wear and tear. They stand up well to scratches, marks, and dents. It’s well-suited for family rooms, hallways, and spaces with high foot traffic.

Matte finish flooring absorbs more light, so it can make the space appear smaller, especially in darker rooms. Matte flooring is also harder to clean. Without the gloss coat, stains soak into the surface and can be stubborn to remove. This means you need to clean up liquid spills on matte floors as soon as they happen to avoid damaging the flooring.
