I am about to move into "student housing" in Upper Manhattan. I'll be there for 2-3 years.
The floors are horrible linoleum.
Any ideas on inexpensive ways to cover them? Someone suggested putting down low-end, neutral commercial carpet (think doctor's office) and then adding area rugs as we have time/money which we could take with us when we leave. Problem is: where does one get low end commercial wall to wall and how cheap is low-end.
Any advice would be appreciated.
Putting down commercial carpeting seems like a good idea for the shortrun and the nicest thing you could do is use FLOR tiles (either to cover or to use as a rug) or Bolon Sisal. However, to be less expensive about it we would go for remnants.
