Falling in line with rustic shabby-chic design, Mohawk Refined Artistry laminate flooring provides authentic looks of highly varied timeworn hardwood in a surface that is easier to clean, maintain, and install. While there is much appreciation for wall-to-wall bona fide hardwood in homes, having hardwood throughout is not always practical, especially if your home is built slightly below grade, you have pets or children to worry about, or your kitchen gets a lot of use and therefore a large amount of foot traffic.
Laminate mitigates these worries, as its durable surface and advances in high-definition printing technology mesh together to form a sturdy, aesthetically pleasing floor. Clearly Mohawk Refined Artistry is not your great grandmother's laminate flooring that looked like it was stolen from a bowling alley in the 1950s. Hand-scraped, textured, and 7.5" wide, Refined Artistry laminate planks pay homage to the artisan hardwood floors of the past in a format designed for the ever-constant advancement of technology of the future.
Three color options complete the Mohawk Refined Artistry collection, each with similar yet unique variations in color. As printing technologies have improved over the years, repetition between planks is virtually nonexistent; this provides a more authentic look and feel to this laminate collection, fooling even the well-trained eye into thinking these laminates are true hardwood at first glance. Painted Timber exudes traditional intermediate brown colorations that work well in homes with a rustic ambience. Weathered Grey is more versatile, as its color contrasts are subtler and more neutral, allowing it to pair well with several interior design themes. The lighter patina of Silver Dollar fits nicely in kitchens with skylights, panoramic windows, and high vaulted ceilings by enhancing available natural light. This color option is perfectly accented by off-grey kitchen cabinets, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and charcoal-colored furnishings.
