Nothing beats a real hardwood floor. Although there are alternative wood look floors, they can never capture the true look and feel of a real hardwood floor.

They are also more tolerant to moisture, and will not warp or crack. The major difference between solid and engineered hardwood is that you can refinish a solid floor multiple times but engineered floors only once or twice.
