I'm replacing the kitchen floor and want to have one type/color of flooring throughout the entire first floor. Tile is not attractive to me and hardwood is too expensive, so I am considering linoleum. You heard me! That indestructable stuff they used back in the 1950's. I'm considering either a citrus color or a neutral....linoleum is not only inexpensive, it's "green" and as most of us know, lasts a lifetime. Any thoughts? Most folks in my housing association carpet their living rooms, but I cannot abide carpet. If you like it, do you prefer all one color or a pattern? The rooms are small. Thankies for any input!
