Doesn't last longer and isn't as hard wearing if you've got a professional doing your flooring properly.Honestly, if you want something that will last, I'd go timber look vinyl planks. Check out the karndeen art select range. My in laws have this and it looks just like timber but easier to maintain and lasts longer. But to answer your question, blackbutt
I'd 100% go blackbutt, and as mentioned your choice of finnish can have a huge impact on the end result. But I like blackbutt.
It won't be THAT much a difference to go beech. And you can always have it refinished in another 5-10 years. Will be less expensive than relaying a whole new floor.
