Researching the internet is a mixed bag about laminate wood flooring for kitchens and baths. I want continuity throughout the house, just going to carpet the bedrooms. I know a Nike Air Force 1 White Low Top few years back, it didn't hold up well even if a little water got on it. It seems currently that those problems are not as predominate any longer if 8mm is used. This house is being flipped for a home buyer. ARV is $120k, which is the median for my area. Because of this real hardwood seems to be cost prohibitive because the house needs quite a bit of updating throughout (can you say Brady Nike Air Force 1 High All Blue
I've used laminate many times in kitchens with no issues. Laminateis less expensive than hardwood, and the install will cost less as well. And I see a lot of investors skip right over this concept.
A little cheaper than engineered wood flooring and as long as the rest of your package looks good it generally will not matter in the buyers eye.
After that, your next best bet is a vinyl that is coved up the wall. Commercial applications use this all the time. Just remember laminate is not indestructible: it can scratch and dent. Water will still seek out the edges of the room, which will hurt everything in the case of a flood. Normal spills of water, milk, or whatever should not hurt the product provided the liquid is cleaned up Nike Air Force 1
Bunch orange kitchen counters? LoL!) Any input about your experiences with laminate wood floors would be beneficial. Thank you!
This is exactly the discussion we have on our property in Florida. We have the perfect setting to do acontinuouslaminate wood floor and we are considering the 8mmthick option. However we want to make sure we keep it functional and beautiful.

wise, I would not do it again.
I just love how this floor looks and would like to make something similar to this property.
as it should be.
I have a nice laminate wood in my personal kitchen (open space, also wanted continuity) and it looks great and seems to hold up to the minimal water pretty well, but does NOT hold up to things (silverwear, cups, etc) being dropped on it. It is thick and it dents or chips off the finish. Also little tiny pebbles and what not will scratch it not great for moving appliances in/out. So durability Nike Air Force Flyknit 1
Saying that, in homes of 100k to 180k I have used Engineered Hardwoods/Laminate in these houses for years. I run those floors throughout the house foyer, LR, DR,Kitchen, Hallway then in the bathrooms ceramic tile, and carpet in bedrooms. When that formula I have sold well over 100 houses in retail with that type of flooring. Did you have any buyer mention they are not going to put an offer because you elected to put wood in the kitchen floor?
We have used this flooring as high as $150k (average for our area, median is closer to $250k) with great success. usually in the living/kitchen areas. Stick to tile in wet(er) areas but its been a design choice over utility choice.
Our house has an ARV of 150 160k which is below the average and median for this city, but still a very nice neighborhood.

If you want a floor that will "hold up" to a flood, look to vinyl products from Flexitec. A flood may damage the subfloor because the water finds the edges of the room, but you can dry out this vinyl and reinstall it!!
