use the vinyl plank that Brad uses…especially the type that has the overlap install…goes down fast and anyone with average skills can install, which means less $$$$ to install and lasts and lasts and lasts
sticky tiles are supposed to be good because you can repair by swapping one out for another, but they need that repair more often that you would like to do and the new tiles never match the old tiles even when they come from the same batch…fading and yellowing
I have a unit that needs kitchen, living room and hallway replaced and vinyl planks are what I am using Had bad experience with laminate chipping and “peaking” from too much water
I think you can get away with cheap carpet in the bedrooms because the rooms are small and for the most part covered with furniture. I use inexpensive berber carpet in the bedrooms ( it doesn’t matt down in high traffic areas as bad), because even the better carpet will last only 5 to 7 years MAX in a rental
and no one puts the highest grade carpet in a rental unless it’s the highest grade of rental.
