Hardwood vs. Laminate: What's the Difference?

Laminate floors fall under three main categories. They can be floating floors (glued down), glueless floating floors or pre-glued floating floors.

Hardwood floors, also come in two varieties: Solid wood or engineered wood.

Any of these options can be used in bedrooms, dining rooms, bedrooms and various other rooms in your house. The real difference is price. Installing hardwood flooring is more expensive than laminate. However, keep in mind that unlike laminate floors, hardwood adds value to your home. Also, if you suffer from allergies, remember that hardwood flooring is hypo-allergenic.
