OK, lets get the confusion out of the way...

Is this a laminate floor,.pergo type floating floor?

OR?

Is this an engineered cross ply hardwood. Stapled, glued, or floated.

you cannot stain a Pergo type laminate floor. it's not real wood. it's a picture of wood that's been laminated to a substrate & covered with a clear finish. even if you could get the clear finish off, there'd be no wood to stain.
