There are a lot of different options for you to choose from when it comes to what type of flooring you want. They all come with different prices, longevity, style and ease of installation. It will be up to you to find the type that fits your needs the best.
Laminate flooring is pretty easy to install. The main thing that you need to keep in mind is that it will take some time for it to get acclimated to the temperature inside your home, because you will have issues with the sections shrinking or expanding otherwise. This could lead to unsightly cracks between the sections after installation, which could be tricky to fix.
Laminate flooring can look any way you want, since it basically consists of a photograph underneath a clear surface. Therefore, if you want it to look like wood floors, or marble, or anything else, that is possible.
When you clean your floor, you should try to avoid using chemicals and water as much as possible to avoid damaging the floor. Instead, use a vacuum or a broom.
