Vinyl will look like vinyl. Laminate flooring is very easy to install and if you go to a second hand store, a HUD store or a lumber liquidators, you can actually pick up hardwood laminates at a very reasonable price. Many hardware stores give free how to clinics for laminate installation.

Yes, we actually did that several years ago because I did not want carpet in my bedroom closets. We got a one-piece type vinyl floor for all the closets & it still looks great. Check a couple stores that have all their patterns displayed. You are sure to find one you like.

Modern vinyl floors often look very natural. There are now some vinyl products that come in long, thin strips that approximate those you would find for wood floors. You will get a less realistic look from traditional square tiles or even large sheet goods. Good sub-floor preparation will be key to making vinyl look good after installation.
