i just took out 550 square feet of tile due
to bad installation. I love the look of tile but would like to try wood. New flooring is in the kitchen/breakfast area,
2 hallways, entry way and 1/2 bath? need durable flooring that can handle 2 young boys in and out of a swimming pool all summer and a chocolate lab dog.
Any recomendations?

For that kind of traffic, better stick with the tile

a laminate floor will stand up to that kind of traffic,and give you the wood look you want.if you go with a hard wood floor ask a lot of questions about the will have to pay for a good one ,but it's worth it. good luck
