Recommendations for medium/light-toned, engineered, $5 sq/ft?

Madeline616September 29, 2012

Hi,

I'm looking for a medium-to-light-tone engineered floor, preferably 5" or wider.

Definitely not blonde, but definitely not dark, hoping to avoid heavy red, golden, orange hues. Basically a neutral, medium-to-light toned wood.

I like the look of a lot of visible graining, and don't mind knots, etc.

My budget is $5 p/sq ft. I can go a little over, but not much.

The pic below is a lot like what I have in mind. This one is too distressed, but I'm okay with a little distressing. Love the French bleed, but not a requirement.

Thanks for any input!

Thanks so much, Floortech. Your suggestion led me to a local store with a great selection, and brought home a beautiful LR flooring sample board.

I also took home 2 sample boards of Columbia (Pagosa in Campfire Hickory and Gunnison in Brown Sugar Walnut.)

Would love to hear your 2 cents on quality of Columbia.

Columbia is recognized for quality...it is not known for low pricing options...but the quality is there.
