The point I was trying to make was that if you're planning on building sets to shoot on, then the flooring in the studio isn't likely to be photographed, and durability becomes the key factor - withstanding the set construction; providing flat, uniform, unflexing support; easy to clean, etc. Unless you're going to be building new sets every few days, laminate is probably a good choice, it's just that the first laminate flooring I put in has a "give" to it that I find a bit unpleasant - and I'm pretty sure I followed the instructions correctly. On the other hand, it's held up well to five years of heavy foot traffic, it looks good, and - when cleaned - looks "fresh." And while I don't like to think about it, I suppose it could be replaced with minimal hassle, compared to, e.g., tile or just about anything else.
BTW, FWIW, our laminate floor has held up way better than a painted wood floor done at the same time.
