How laminate floors came to be

Engineers in Sweden were the first to come up with the creative idea of producing laminate flooring. The goal was to match the beauty of hardwood floors that was easy to install and less expensive.

By the mid-90s, the product received rave reviews from European clientele. Laminate soon become a staple in U.S. do-it-yourself centers and lumber yards. Manufacturers such as ColorCenter, DreamWeaver, Karastan, Mohawk, and Royalty Carpet Mills picked it up and created competing products. We carry laminate from all of these manufacturers.
