Best of luck Steve,
I welcome the opportunity to serve you, so feel free to contact me with any questions regarding real estate.
I am sure your mind is now spinning with all the different opinions offered. As to Laminate, it works great for areas with kids and high traffic. For a Dining Room, you may want to go with Hardwood Floors. Of course, do your homework as there are many different kinds of hardwood ranging from Oak to exotic like Mahogany and Cherry.
As to the colors you currently have, think about Mahogany - its not too red like Cherry and not too brown like Oak. Get samples from websites like http://www.BuildDirect.com and they will ship them to you.
Hope this helps. Off course, if you are looking to buy go to http://www.FindNJHomesNow.com. You can search the MLS on your own. No better way:)

Whether or not to use laminate would depend on the value of your home. Hardwood is always preferred, but if you are selling in a lower price range for your community, you can get away with laminate.
Your Realtor can best advise you.
looking at your pale almond walls and burgundy shares..... Here is my thought:
what is the flooring type and color of the room or rooms next to the dining room, it should be a pleasant connect..... Also the size of the dining room should tell you what color you want to put.
In general a lighter floor will brighten up the place, a darker floor though may look richer, warmer.....
I always suggest to my clients to pick an opposing color if you cannot match the same hardwood color of the adjoining room. And looking at burgundy drapes and light almond walls, a nice darker cherry
hardwood must look very nice!
If you are redoing the floor, for yourself or for selling purposes? Depending on how the rest of the homes floors are, if there is hardwood flooring in bedrooms and the living room then stick to the
real thing good hardwood flooring....
Hope this helps a little.
And remember if you pick a certain hardwood flooring, it can be sanded and stained into a different color if the new owners do not like the one you pick.
