Children out and the dog has had her last bark. We chose Kahrs laminated (engineered) flooring in cherry. Love the looks. The wood surface is alittle soft and does show some dents. We instsalled Harris-Tarket Longstrip (laminated or engineered flooring) in our family room and were a little disappointed in the millwork of the flooring. Not as good as Kahrs. The H-T had a lot slivers in the toung and grooves which had to be cleaned out for a good fit. Needles to say we like thw wood look.
