Is this real or fake wood in this pic?

I can’t tell…never had any kind of wood flooring before, but would like something similar. Can you tell the difference between real wood and wood laminate floors?

That’s a wood laminate floor. It’s a nice one though. I’ve seen some that look like junk, but this one looks good. Hope this helps.

    I believe the term is ‘engineered wood’ and it looks like that is what it is especially if each plank is that wide.

    The product advertised on that sight is photo laminated composite flooring. It is basically pressed paper with a photo finish on it. If you scratch it or otherwise damage it, you won’t be able to sand the scratch out and refinish it. You will see the compressed paper laminated under it.

    Yes, once you see a real hard wood floor consisting of tongue and groove strips of hard wood 5/16 inch thick, you will know a fake hard wood floor at a glance.

    Obviously fake.

    There are not enough seams, and planks that wide are EXTREMELY hard to find anymore.
