Choose the correct type of Shaw laminate flooring by perusing the online catalog or finding an authorized showroom near your home. The online catalog allows you to filter laminate flooring selections by color, look and lifestyle, as of 2015. Colors range from beige and brown to red and orange, while looks include wood, tiled stone and bamboo.
Clear all of the criteria for the style, color and look to view more than 200 style and color combinations available from Shaw. When you click on a color choice, the options change below the filter. For instance, when you choose the beige/tan color, the display below it shows 43 style and color combinations. Each color shows a specific shade, such as timberline, ancestry or vintage painted. When you add a look and a lifestyle, options narrow from the colors.
Another way to select Shaw laminate floors includes a trip to the showroom. Locate your nearest authorized showroom by inputting a ZIP code in the search module on ShawFloors.com. Limit the search by a certain mileage radius, types of floors sold and store features.
In general, pick a laminate floor based on various features such as thickness, AC rating and texture. Thicknesses vary from 7 millimeters to 12 millimeters. AC rating indicates the resistance a floor has to wear and tear. AC ratings go from one to five, and a higher AC rating stands up to heavier use. Textures start with embossed and go to high gloss.
