I have been looking for some new flooring, and I think that I may have found some. It is quick step floors and there is some styles that are really pretty. It is a laminate, which is stronger (in my opinion) than real hardwood floors. It resists scratches and dents (you know how real wood floors will dent when you drop something heavy on it) a lot better than hardwood. So with the kids, I think that laminate just seems like a better choice to me.
