can anybody help w/ recommendations on vinyl you love the look of?

we're redoing our kitchen. i was leaning towards laminate, but we have a moisture problem at the back door, and i'm too chicken to do it. i know real hardwood is the best, but frankly, i don't want to drop 3 to 4 grand on this kitchen floor! so, if we're going to go with vinyl, are there any that you guys have found to be more attractive than others? thanks in advance, paula.

What kind of a "moisture problem"?

You will have to deal with the "moisture problem" before you install anything, including vinyl.

we'd had trouble w/ water coming in when it rains heavily at the back door threshold. that used to be part of the garage, so it wasn't a big deal. we've extended the kitchen to include it now. the builder says the new threshold (which will be installed w/ the new floor) will help, and that the problem is that the gutter above that door traps leaves (from our horrid bradford pear). then water overflows. that's being fixed as well, so i'm hoping that there won't be a moisture problem. the things i read about even one water event w/ laminate completely scare me, though.

there are so many different styles and patterns when it comes to vinyl that there is not eneough space to list here,my advice would be to go to a mom and pop shop and look over the samples they have and then pick something in the mid to upper price range cause ,as with anything else you get what you pay for and you don't want to put in a cheap peice of vinyl that is not going to last year or 2 at best,i say mom and pop store because the people there would be experienced with what they are trying to sell you with less pressure and probably a little less expensive as well

A company called Nafco has a nice vinyl plank floor. Run a search for them, I'm sure you'll find what you're looking for.
