Bathroom Flooring Options

I have removed the vinyl tiles for my upstair bathroom. I can put in porcelain tiles for the flooring but prefer something lighter. I know that laminates are not good for bathrooms since they do not do well in a moisture environment.

What would be some options?

You might like LVP.

There are many choices of vinyl tiles that are water proof.

That (LVP) or bamboo will most likely be my choice.

Can I install it straight on top of the plywood or do I need some type of substrate?

Thank You

It can be. But it needs to be very stable and little or no unevenness. If the floor is nothing but the actual 3/4 plywood floor, I would suggest a sub floor over that. 1/4 concrete board or Hardi board will suffice. My floors were already sub'd with 1/4 Luan, but it was stable, dry and very level.
