My question is on Vinal flooring, specifically Karndean. I want to put a wood floor in my livingroom and am wondering if I will be as happy with Karndean flooring, which says that even a discerning eye can't tell the difference between their product and real wood. I am particular when it comes to my home and do not want a floor that looks like plastic. So, any critical opinions are welcomed.

I'm not familiar with Karndean, but I am familiar with wanting something, compromising, and then regretting my compromise. If, in your heart, you want wood, then maybe that's what you should use.

FWIW, I have an older house with carpeting over wood. I can't wait 'til I've save up enough to rip the carpet out and have all that nice wood sanded and refinished. I like wood too.

I believe your right. When it comes down to it there is no substitute for real wood. So now alittle more saving up is in order. Now that I think of it I've been living for a year without countertops because I want a nice concrete counter instead of formica or any other plastic. Thats my new motto, no plastic materials in my house. LOL. Thanks.
