Looking for flooring for a family room . Large area - concrete floor.
Would love something that would look like hardwood. Any comments.

There are laminates that look like wood if you check out the better manufacturers (not the big box stores). Be aware that your installation could be expensive because the concrete floor is likely not perfectly level. You'll also need a good underlayment and vapour barrier underneath. You might be better to souce a vinyl plank product that is flexible and can adhere to the concrete directly. Check out Karndean (manufacturer) for beautiful wood-look options that look very high-end when installed.

Check out They have several gorgeous laminate floor options. I got 5 samples from them favorite is the Soho Collection Wide Plank Georgian Hickory. Looks just like wood to me...handscraped texture with raised grain and all! We will be putting that in our house next year. Picture attached here and the ones on their website don't do it justice. Seeing it in person it's awesome!
