Bvflooring
I have read that even though the snap together laminate flooring is easier to install, the glued type is much more water resistant. And that only the glued type should be used in bathrooms and kitchens and laundry rooms - wet rooms. And that it also "sounds more solid".

But the owner of the store we are using (highly reputable) likes snap together much more!

Can anyone give me any feedback on this - I am installing laminate flooring or vinyl in my kitchen and eating area. I have a snap together laminate chosen (if we don't go with vinyl) - at this point we have never had a lot of water spill on the floor - but can someone comment about the best choice? Also - we want the 12-inch tile look not 15-16 inch big tiles.

If drops of water get on a laminate floor - I am saying drops not cups full - and it is not dried, will the floor buckle?

Beth,
the areas that would be problematic will be the seams. if drops stay on the seams for an extended period of time, then yes, you might have issues. most of the time, you will clean up spills, but if the kids or such do not clean up spills, then there can be issues.
