Mohawk Painted Reserve laminate flooring showcases natural oak hardwood aesthetics in a more durable, easier-to-clean format perfect for busy households with pets or children. Don’t let budget or installation limitations prevent you from bringing hardwood looks to your home; Painted Reserve will fool even trained eyes into thinking that these laminates are in fact real wood harvested directly from the forest, but don’t worry; your secret is safe with us.
Painted Reserve is made in the U.S.A. Leading the way in domestic manufacturing that is synonymous with quality and consistency. Another plus is this collection is FloorScore-certified for low VOCs (volatile organic compounds), so you can rest assured that by going with this, you are doing your small part to help the environment. Each 8-mm-thick plank comes in a 7.5” wide width with a 47.25” length for the dimensions. The AC4 rating is suitable for any residential home as well as light commercial. AC ratings are based on a scale of 1-5, with 5 being rated for heavy commercial.
Brushed Colors Abound
The color options are what makes this collection stand out. The tones focus on the softness of the colors with a blending of the solid to the lightness. Some of the more popular shades include the Painted Reserve Soft Graphite, which takes the popular grey tones and elevates them with hints of softer grays and browns mixed in. If a darker shade is what is desired, check out the Grey Slate that has a blackish grey streaked with slightly lighter colors.
Another dimension is the Kaffee Brown that takes traditional brown tones and incorporates that brushstroke with the mocha undertones. For a lighter color, the Fresh Cream brings out the cream with—again—a play on the ever-so-subtle brown tones. Overall, the color range brings that different look to any room.
Although only available in four colors, this series brings a uniqueness to laminate that was only previously found in high-end hardwoods.
As with all Mohawk products, a variety of underlayments are available to complete the installation. Three different grades fit the different types of subfloors from concrete to plywood. This series also incorporates the 5-in-1 molding for the usual threshold, reducer, and T-molding. A stairnose and quarter-round molding complete the Painted Reserve collection.
