Premiere Floors & Design Center


Flooring in layers

Looking for beautiful flooring that’s both durable and budget-friendly? Look no further than Premiere Floors & Design Center, which carries an extensive selection of laminate floors at unbeatable prices!

 Laminate is the result of fusing a combination of wood-based materials, layered on top of one another in the shape of a plank or tile designed to look and feel like natural wood, stone or ceramic materials.


Which is better? Laminate vs. Hardwood

Hardwood has long been sought after for its beauty, durability, and the value it can add to a home. Nowadays, to help with the affordability of home construction and sales, laminate flooring is being substituted for wood’s warm, natural charm. At Premiere Floors & Design Center, we offer both options, which we recommend to different customers based on their specific needs.

Here’s how these two types of flooring stack up against one another:

Laminate Flooring Construction

Made from composite wood materials
Resists scratches, moisture and wear, all while being easy to clean
Up to 50% less expensive to install, snapping together easy for DIY projects

Hardwood Flooring Construction

Made from natural, harvested trees
Scratches, moisture damage and wear are common, but add value & character
Can be refinished many times via sanding out imperfections

Laminate Care & Maintenance

Did you know that the makeup of laminate flooring varies based on manufacturer? While some of the newer laminate flooring includes waterproof finishes, most do not, so your care and maintenance routine must comply with the manufacturer’s guidelines. For example, Shaw laminate flooring includes wood, so it’s crucial to avoid using excessive moisture or a non-approved cleaning solution while caring for their laminate flooring.
