Exclusive to Floor & Decor, HydroShield is a water-resistant wood-based laminate that looks and feels like real hardwood. Water-resistant for up to 24 hours, HydroShield flooring can be wet mopped and used in kitchens, mudrooms, and even full bathrooms.
Laminate flooring will generally be water-resistant, meaning it can be used safely in kitchens as long as you're not dumping huge amounts of stuff on the floor. This comes from the plastic outer layer of the boards. It's also quite cheap, a special bonus if you have a larger home without a huge budget.
As long as you address the overriding concern of moisture, you can install laminate flooring in the kitchen. If you want no worries about moisture, install sheet vinyl or luxury vinyl plank (LVP) . In terms of appearance, LVP is a close contender with laminate and it is 100% waterproof.
When a laminate floor claims to have a water resistant core, it means that core material has been designed to hold off soaking up water that has gotten through the gaps. It won't hold it off forever. With water resistant floors, you have some time to get to a spill, but you definitely need to get to it.
