I am looking at Karndean Brand vinyl tile for a laundry room remodel. I am told it is long lasting, somewhat resistant to water and will help keep the noise down better than ceramic. This sounds to good to be true. I looked at the Nafco web site below and can not find installation instructions. It just says it is not a DIY product.
I wouldn't say it's better than ceramic but it is a very good product. Walmarts all over the country have Karndean vinyl strip in them. It's more durable than a lot of solid vinyl tile because it's all PVC. Scratches can be buffed out if you ever get any. Competitive products usually have a urethane wear layer, which is more environmentally friendly but when you manage to scratch it, it's there to stay.
