Vinyl Sheet Flooring vs. ? - Small Bathroom


I'm getting ready to start gutting my hallway bathroom, and slowly getting a product/parts list together so I can have the bulk of the materials ordered and ready once the gutting and prep is completed.

My build there will be here in case anyone is interested.

Anyways, the bathroom is small, and when it's all said and done, I will only need around 30 sq.ft of flooring material, so price isn't a concern. I'm not putting tile down, so we're looking for something that is thick, a bit soft underfoot, and as close to resembling tile as possible (open to the brands that require actual grout). I've seen premium vinyl flooring at the BORGs between $1.80-$2.20/sq.ft, and they are all the self adhering backed vinyl tiles that can be dry jointed, or grouted. I've been told there is a premium sheet vinyl product that is very thick and soft to the touch, but I haven't been able to locate it. Any ideas or general recommendations? I'm open to all suggestions. Thanks!

If price is not a factor the best thing to look like tile would be tile. It would be a very easy job since it is so small and no tile would cost very much since it is just 30sf. You could probably even find a tile guy that has some leftovers. I always see people selling small quantities like this on craigslist.

I suppose that's true I should have worded that differently. We don't want tile (cold on the feet and I have no desire to do radiant floor heating), but do like the tiled look.

We used DuraCeramic on another job down in our laundry room, and while I like the softness, and the look, it was a pain to put down working with the adhesive and the latex grout.

IVC sheet vinyl is easy to install, has tile like patterns and is softer than other vinyls.
