Embossed-in-Register Flooring

Laminate flooring was an instant success when it was introduced in the mid '90s. But, it didn't look real enough because the texturing on the surface didn't match up with the beautiful pattern below it. That's not the case anymore thanks to the new "embossed-in-register" floor. Manufacturers have perfected matching up the surface embossing with the image directly below it. The result is a surface with every detail in place or in register. Thus the name: "embossed-in-register." It's a technique you'll likely find stunning. Stone, like terrazzo, captures every indentation. Wood grains duplicate every zig and zag of the real thing. Tiles have deep-textured grout lines, and heavy wood planks have beveled edges.
