The short answer is that it is appropriate for any room. Since it’s waterproof, it is ideal for kitchens, baths, laundry rooms, and anywhere you’d want wood, but can't have it because of the moisture issues. The style makes it ideal also for living/dining areas, bedrooms, home offices, and libraries, etc.
While LVF is always waterproof, the stone plastic or wood-plastic composite cores provide an even greater level of protection. SPC is a little firmer; in fact, it once was used mainly in commercial applications, but as the design options rose, so did the enthusiasm for its use in residential. Wood-plastic composite, while a little less rigid, still has the same level of waterproof capabilities.
