Has anyone ever used the newer Luxury Vinyl Flooring tiles? Specifically the interlocking tiles, similar to Pergo. They can resemble wood or stone. What do you think of them and if you have used them, would you recommend them?

Luxury Vinyl Flooring looks great and very suitable for indoor flooring. It can hold up to heavy furniture as well which is great. Just avoid using them outdoors for they might get bad after a couple of years.

"Luxury Vinyl Flooring" is an oxymoron.

Enough said.

Here's my post about my LVT. And here is my post including pictures.

I found out after reading the maintenance paperwork on the flooring that I cannot use rubber or latex backed rugs on my flooring or it might yellow my flooring. Called the manufacturer & they said to look for rugs that were labeled "safe for vinyl flooring." Oh joy. Now I have to not only find the right size & color of rugs, now I need to find out if they'll damage my floor. ARRRRRGHH! I was going to put some rubber coaster type protectors under my washing machine and dryer feet to protect my new LVP flooring from indentation from the appliances. But nope, can't do that either.

I actually like vinyl tiles better than real tile. My legs get sore after about 30 minutes of standing on tile.

I have not used it but I just saw the newer version of the versalock vinyl planks by Shaw. They come with their own backing and they click and lock together like a laminate flooring but they are water resistance and won't warp and buckle like laminate can from moisture or humidity. It is a floating floor and very easy to install.

I am a fan of vinyl for the durability and ease of maintenance but sadly vinyl has the same negative connotations as trailer and it is a hard sell.

If I "knew" for sure I was going to stay in my house for more than 5 years or so I would go vinyl.

This is the one I thought was pretty cool:
