If there is one thing in flooring that is even more hip than exotic wood floors, it is the exotic wood look Laminate Flooring collections by Gemwoods. Importing your floors from tropical forests in picturesque Hawaii or northern California sounds very luxurious and glamorous, sure, but Gemwoods knows that the hip thing to do these days is to care about environmental sustainability. Everybody is doing it. The Gemwoods Laminates collections realistically mimic woods from the regions they are named after, like the high gloss Sedona collection and the Kauai Acacia hardwood look collection.
But Gemwoods did us one better and, instead of razing these gloriously exotic and endangered forests, they pioneered an authentic wood look style for their Laminates collections. Gemwoods utilizes a saucy combination of exotic finishes and distressing techniques to make functional laminate floors look exactly like the classy hardwood floors you always thought you wanted. The glossy Del Mar collection has a soft-scraped texture while the Sausalito collection is rocking a white washed and scraped style that usually comes with lots of time and pacing back and forth while you wait on hold with the phone company. Laminate is more than just a pretty face, it makes your face look prettier when you walk on it and it is more durable and low maintenance than actual hardwood floors. These are things you can brag about at your next charades night so pay attention. These floors are laminate but they look as high-class as hardwood. For example, the snazzy Prescott collection is topped with a sleek oil finish, but don’t forget its laminate. The Scottsdale collection’s smooth and hand-scraped style is deceptively timberish, so don’t forget: its laminate.
These classy collections by Gemwoods have pioneered both construction and distressing techniques that dress up your space without distressing your bank account. Save up for those flashy booties you’ve been eyeing instead – the Laminates collection can take it. Durable and dazzling, you won’t have to choose between beauty and brawn this time but we only wish we could say the same about your last blind date.
