We are redoing basement. It's a large open area that includes a workout area. We were told that laminant would be OK in this area. We are worried that the workout equipment would leave dents/scratches in the laminant. We also looked at a vinyl plank locking floor that we liked. What would be better in exercise area?
Bamboo or strand bamboo from a real flooring store, not a box store, would be my choice. Bamboo is harder than most domestic hardwoods; strand bamboo harder yet and would be perfect under exercise equipment. Choice of colors. Variety of configurations and install options. Beautiful stuff too! I like this company's products but there are others.
