Stylish laminate & ldquo; oak & rdquo; in the interior

First of all, I would like to note that oak is the best material for both parquet and laminate. Its main advantages are durability, strength and hardness. In addition, oak ages very beautifully. True, as for the laminate, in this case, its strength is not as important as the design functions. Natural oak, both for parquet and laminate, has light golden shades with high fiber contrast, i.e. for example, there may be light and dark areas on the same board at the same time. Natural oak has several undertones: golden, greenish and even reddish shades..

  • three-cavity – represent an imitation of block parquet, consisting of small dies, this type is most recommended for small rooms
