Final Four Choices Waterproof Flooring

last month

As per my other post, we are not painting our honey oak cabs or doing any remodel in the near future. We are trying to update flooring on our entire first floor level, liv rm, kitchen, dining rm. &chose something that will work with the honey oak. WE may do the kitchen in a tile so there isn't too much wood, but the other rooms have honey oak trim & doors that are the same exact color. From my research, you can match but choose a different grain so they don’t compete, go light or darker BUT in the same tone. It has been a challenge. We came up with 4 choices. And this is after looking at TONS of choices.

Top left River Edge Oak, engineered hardwood treated with waterproof coating, we really liked, however the product itself is not great, many broken edges, lots of splintering. Because if the thin "real wood" layer, dents & scratches easy & can't be sanded. Decided not worth possible issues.

The rest are luxury vinyl plank.

Top right Burbank Oak, in person doesn't look as awful as it does in pictures, but just seemed off.

Bottom left Oakmont, again in person not as awful, and again, doesn't seem right.

Bottom right, Lexington, it's darker than existing the evening, it almost looks like it can match but is definitely darker , but the tone seems right, no clash.

We think bottom right -Lexington is it.

Lexington near the trim...
