yea i read that too.. but last time before got vinyl, ppl use to laminate .. kids also like that grown up.. my ID know i have a baby and he did tell me normal vinyl also ok de.. so i trusted him ba.. since they are the more experience ppl

I am having laminate for my current house. That only bad thing about laminate is bloated up with tiny bit of water. Both IDs told me for long time investment, better to opt for tiles. Vinyl is slight cheaper(50cents to a dollar per sqf) depends on which design we chose. Vinyl will have stains if we leave the cupboard on the same area for a long time.

I think so long it's tiles, it's a bit more ex than vinyl. about 50cents to a dollar per sqf. I am going to the Meet the People session for my area and ask MP to help to appeal for my case.:s13::s13:

Share with you all my real life experience.

For toilet, our design is something like this(below link). Basin sitting on top of the cabinet. I believe many ppl will chose this type of design. Looks nice and elegant. Guess what..... Water sip through into the vanity every time someone brushes their teeth or wash their hands. Sooner or later..... my vanity left with the box only without doors. Everything just rot inside. When washing the toilet, I have to shift out everything inside the vanity. Wash, wipe very dry then replace the items back. First few rounds very hardworking to repeat every step properly. Now I also become lazy to wash the the solid surface cos it's white in colour, will be yellowish with stain after a month. Unless you wipe dry every time the solid surface is wet.

For Kitchen. Our cutlery drawer (about 4 drawers in a row) is next to the basin. Guess what.... 1st drawer is badly damaged. Water sip through too. Next round when I design the kitchen cabinet, I will arrange the drawers far away from the basin.
