You can get wood, stone, or tile looks because waterproof flooring is a newer version of luxury vinyl (LVF).  Sometimes referred to as waterproof vinyl flooring, it has the same style with true-to-life images, micro beveling, and embossing to add depth, dimension, and textured features such as wire-brushed, hand scraped, weathered, and distressed. Like LVF, it can be cut into planks or square tile-sized pieces. 

What do WPC and SPC mean?

WPC is a wood-plastic composite, while SPC is a stone plastic composite. They are both technologically advanced cores that won’t peel or ripple ever, no matter how much water there is or for how long. While they both offer the same moisture protection level, SPC has a more rigid and firm feeling underfoot like that of a hard surface. WPC is warmer, softer, and more resilient.

Finally!  Waterproof laminate flooring

For years, laminate has been a popular choice for wood look floors with realistic grain patterns, deep embossing, and the feeling of a hard surface underfoot.  Originally it wasn’t suggested for installation in kitchens, baths, and other wet rooms; the new waterproof version keeps spills from absorbing, staining, peeling, and rippling, which now makes it ideal for any room in the house.  Be sure to specify if you want the waterproof or original version.

All floorings follow current industry trends to get anything from the trending wood floors to marble surfaces and colorful geographic tile patterns.  Both are easy to care for with daily sweeping and periodic mopping.  Installation can be a fast and easy floating floor where the pieces click together, mat, then hover over the subfloor with no nails or glue.
