Welcome nzo1128, to the best dary DIY'r site on the web.

If I understand your question correctly you are looking for a product that looks like wood, but doesn't scratch. I don't know of any such product, there are laminates that look like wood, but scratch, there is real wood that with the right finish will be scratch resistant.

Perhaps some of the flooring experts here will have a better idea of a product that will suit your needs.


When its all said and done there is usually more said than done

Actually laminates are very hard to scratch...they have a protective coating, aluminum oxyide, very hard substance. Laminate is harder to scratch up then wood floor is. Laminate comes in a wood grain look, plenty of styles and colors. It also comes in tile looks too. But laminate would be your best choice here and they are a great DIY.
