This engineered hardwood is not only durable but the texture and tone of each plank really defines the space. I am an Interior designer in Vernon, British Columbia and we have used CRAFT in numerous homes, including my own! We just did a major renovation and we installed the Avila, Hickory from the Castillo Plank Collection. We have received numerous compliments on how great it looks! I am very impressed with CRAFT products and their customer service. I would highly recommend them for your flooring needs.
