Hardwood is "Best"

The fact that you are considering laminates, usually indicates the success of the marketing campains by the laminate industry. There are some good products out there, BUT, keep in mind that they are made to "imitate" real wood, and there are concerns about moisture related failure with them also.

Real wood offers something no laminate can offer, real wood WILL increase the value of your home, real wood can be refinished many times more than engineered products, and laminates can't be refinished, they have to be replaced, and finally, with the exception of Tile, no other floor covering will last as long as wood, most last at least 100 years.
