Bellingham-Warmed Maple Plank
Inexpensive Quality--tight seems and random pattern
Put this floor in 2 years ago and it is still my favorite. The least-like laminate laminate I've found. The pattern is random enough that it is hard to see repeats, which adds to the real feel. Most people that come through our home can't tell that it isn't "real." It doesn't have that loud clicking sound, either. The seems are tight and flat, and after all this time, show no water damage--even though the flooring is in my dining room and kitchen--which get wet a lot with 4 kids around. We're now considering putting it in the adjacent living room. We love it that much.

Overall thumbs up!!
The kitchen floor looks great - I love the color, appearance, and can stand on it for hours cooking without foot or back fatigue. Cleaning is easy as nearly everything comes up with just a damp mop. The only drawback is that even if I use a nearly dry mop to clean, I have to immediately wipe with a dry mop or towel after cleaning a small section as it tends to show damp streaks. Also, a single drop of water on the floor results in a spot which stays until I mop and wipe again. Other than that, I love my floor!!
