Luxury Vinyl Flooring (LVF)
This snap-together flooring is the gold standard for moisture-prone spaces like mudrooms and laundry rooms. Square luxury vinyl tiles (LVT) and rectangular luxury vinyl planks (LVP) are waterproof and impact-resistant, with a cushiony surface layer that makes them easy on the feet.
For maximum moisture- and impact-resistance, choose LVF with a rigid stone plastic composite (SPC) core. At $3.50 to $4.00 per square foot (psf), it costs about a dollar psf more than flooring with a more conventional wood plastic composite (WPC) core. The difference? SPC doesn’t contain wood byproducts that can potentially soak up moisture and swell.
LVP also comes in a wide range of colors and patterns, so you can have a designer laundry room if that’s what you want.
