Hello out there! I'm beginning a major remodel of a 110 year old house. Very exciting. I need to figure out flooring. The original flooring is salvageable in parts but not throughout so I'm mulling options for replacement flooring. I like wood. I like the warmth of it and walking on it. Cannot do tile. I've been encouraged to consider Coretec plus and have seen samples of it. I'm concerned about its longterm acceptance - if I sell in 15 years will it be out by then? I also want to be considerate of sustainability principles. Coretec plus is said to be durable, waterproof and lovely to stand on. Engineered wood feels like laminate to me so but I've only encountered it in samples. I would prefer hardwood but don't want to rule out other options that might leave room in the budget for other necessities. So I'm curious about what is considered the best, most sustainable but also budget conscious choice. What would a designer choose for their own home?
