Need help for my flooring

I need to have carpet removed and replaced with something like laminate, but I want the whole house to be the same. I have discovered that laminate should not be installed in bath, laundry kitchen. Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Look into vinyl and pvc tiles. Or ceramic wood.
What subfloor do you have?

I think the subfloors are plywood.

Flexible flooring would be better. No need for cementboard-like layers.
What are our thoughts on linoleum or pvc flooring?
Some very pretty types available nowadays.

honestly? if you don't have small children who would splash water everywhere in a bath, you can put laminate in the bathroom and kitchen. this is also true of floating wood flooring.
the subfloor being unlevel is really the concern.

with vinyl flooring, any bumps or dips will translate straight through.

I meant the thick vinyl/pvc planks. Laminate type or stick on.
