Linoleum, cork, and vinyl composition tile (VCT) are historically correct for kitchens in homes built from the late 19th century to the 1950s. Durable and easy on the feet, resilient floors can last for decades. Since the pattern goes all the way through the material, they also help conceal dirt and damage. Available as tile or sheet goods, all three also offer unlimited scope for patterns, from simple checkerboards to intricate inlays.
Using your chalk lines for reference, line up the first or starter tile. Then lay down just enough adhesive to accommodate four tiles. If you have chosen variegated tiles in contrasting colors, lay them so that the pattern in the lighter tiles are at right angles to the pattern in the darker tiles. This is called quarter-turning.
Laminate flooring is incredibly durable, with high stain and fade resistance. These hard surface floors are easy to clean and maintain, as the wear and moisture-resistant surface makes spills and other messes no bother to clean up. Wide planks, bold colors and textures, and exotic species are all hot trends at the moment. And, for the environmentally-conscious consumer, laminate wood flooring is always an environmentally-friendly product for your home.
