Low end rentals I will often use the 12" x 12" sticky tile vinyl… These are quickly and easily spot replaced between tenants when needed.
On rehabs/retail I was laying down sheet lenolium/vinyl… but often the contractors would mess it up anyway… so now I just do 1’ x 1’ Ceramic tile in kitchens I rehab. Its a relatively cheap “UPGRADE” about $1 a foot plus labor, grout and mortar.
New construction 250k homes don’t have tile in their kitchens unless you pay to upgrade em… and at the end of the day the cost difference between it and lenolium is relatively nominal.
Laminent wood flooring costs about $2 a square foot and may be a little less on labor, but bet you at the end of the day you will spend more, or break even.
