Need help with floor tile choices

Hi,
I need help in deciding if Luxury Vinyl tile would be a good option for a formal living and dining room which are situated besides each other. So the rooms look like one big room, with just a bordering wall between the two spaces. i am trying to deside between Luxury Vinyl tile and laminate floor. Pleaes help....
I looked around on the web for ideas..and every one seem to be using Luxury Vinyl tile for bathrooms and high traffic areas.
So please help me decide...
thanks

One of the main benefits of luxury tile is you can get a wood plank look with the nearly 100% water durability of vinyl, and is probably why you see it in bathrooms and kitchens so much. But doesn't mean it's not appropriate for other rooms.

Luxury tile is also generally more durable than laminates from a wear and scratch perspective.

Laminates however have the benefit of the sound and feel of wood that vinyl does not.

The only thing you may want to consider if convinced on luxury tile is whether to go with solid wood or not. The cost for the wood is only slightly more if you work it, but you avoid the lingering stigma vinyl flooring still has in the general re-sale market.
