Currently doing a knockdown rebuild and needed some help with flooring selection.
We are sourcing our flooring from Choices Flooring and have currently selected the Genesis California range by proline floors.

We're a bit concerned about the colour being too dark and black because in person the wood looks quite different to those photos on the website. The piece in the centre is the California colour we selected and next to it are varieties of Coffee colours.
Another thing we were considering were Engineered Oak varieties which seem to have the nice lighter colours seen in display houses. How does engineered oak compare to strand woven bamboo in terms of wear and durability?

Thanks in advance.

Just thought I'd post an update. So pretty much, from all the sales reps we talked to, the overall message was:
+ Feels nicer, natural product
- Moves based on weather
If going bamboo, make sure its a good company (quickstep) and the installers provide good aftermarket support (willing to fix any cupping, warping) after installation and are experienced in laying the product.
+ More hardwearing
- Doesn't look/feel as nice
We have decided to go with laminate just because we don't want the floor cupping/warming under extreme weather. The villeroy and boch really appealed to me, so probably going with that.

Thanks for the tips. Unfortunately we got priced out of engineered flooring in the end and had to settle for a top end laminate instead. Although it lacks that feel…
