Good Questions: Funky Kitchen Flooring Solution?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Hello AT,

I’m looking to cover my linoleum floor in my kitchen with something funky and cheap… I’m considering FLOR tiles, I saw a post on here for Sisal, and I’ve been told about stick on tiles (although I hear they don’t wear well)

What other ideas do you have? I’m also interested in finding any ‘funky’ lineoleum.. . does it exist?? thanks! *Abigail

Dear Abigail, kitchen are among the dirtiest floors in the home, so you really want to go with something durable and cleanable. FLOR tiles are great, but they can get dirty and are not very cleanable (though they are replaceable). And we would agree, stay away from real sisal. It will trap dirty and age quickly.

The simplest thing to put down is a vinyl sisal. You should take a look at Bolon Sisal and Chilewich woven mats and their new cousing Plynyl. Both of these are funky, come in bright colors and are not too expensive.

As for linoleum, it IS really hard to find good stuff here. The best we’ve seen is Marmoleum. Check that out. It will take installation, etc, of course….
