I'm in the process of having a laundry closet built - typical bi-fold door affair, and the half walls removed. I have to replace the carpet (hurray!) and am not sure what to use? I'd figured on that vinyl product that looks like stone. Then at HD the other day, I saw some sort of laminate pergo type stuff, with a notation that said it was good for use in wet areas like the laundry. When I mentioned this to my contractor, he said laminate doesn't do well when wet.
Any suggestions? There is a wooden layer under the carpet, and I assume concrete from the carport under that. If this was strictly a laundry room, I wouldn't care too much about appearance, but it will also be a living area that happens to have a laundry closet in the far corner, and I care because of resale. It's also the first area people see if they come in through the driveway door. Additional info: two shedding dogs and their crates will be in the area, so durability and ease of cleaning is important.
