Unless you live a solitary life as a singleton who consistently wears a Snuggie, this Armstrong Architectural Remnants Laminate Collection is your solution to real life. Although Snuggies are warm and fuzzy, they are not ideal for hosting dinner parties…or time during the summer months. If you are anything like, well, most humans, youany have pets, children, and a budget. And if you chose to line your home with hardwood floors, chances are every day would be war: just you and your hardwood versus the world. Wood is beautiful but it most certainly is not practical. Laminate boasts the beauty of wood, but with so many more perks.
There are more than a few wood look series on the market already, but Armstrong has gone one step further than the competition and incorporated woodworking imperfections into these six shades of awesome. Armstrong specializes in laminate flooring, but the carpentry scars really set this series a step above. The Sawmill Oak planks are distressed with what looks like a round blade, and the Skip Planed planks emulate the scars of a handheld carpenter’s skip effortlessly. We haven’t seen anyone fake it so well since Harry met Sally. Speaking of faking it, if you really love hard wood the only thing you’ll give up when you choose Armstrong Architectural Remnants over wood is sky-high costs. Decisions haven’t been this easy to make since American Idol’s first season.
Armstrong laminate is five times more resistant to scratching than hardwood, environmentally hip with it the Woodland Reclaim Old Original Wood Grey is super sexy and repels water and other liquids rather than soaking it all up.
So soak this up: this groundbreaking laminate collection is everything hardwood never was – moisture, stain and fade-resistant. Go ahead and bring in the bottle of wine and even the bottles of milk. If you spill on the Antique Structure Milk Paint series no one will even notice until you have a chance to mop it up. To top it off, laminate is a much warmer and more forgiving flooring option for your feet – even sans Snuggie.
