However, although it can provide its prestige value, solid wood is not very suitable for interiors in tropical regions with high humidity levels such as Indonesia, because solid wood flooring has the possibility of expanding and shrinking caused by air temperatures.

Laminate Wood Flooring

Laminated wood flooring or better known as imitation wood is made from wood pulp pressed together with glue, then laminated with decorative patterned wood paper.

Want to shock your guests with the beauty of your flooring, then it is this choice that you make. It is perfect for industries, commercial and home purposes. Engineered wood is made from 100% real wood, not fiber wood as used by some furniture manufacturers.
