I like to refrain using the word 'hate', but I STRONGLY DISLIKED, our kitchen lineoleum. It was nice and new when we originally walked through the house, before we bought it. But add 3 kids and a dog, well, you know how it goes. It just got nasty, and I have been waiting a LONG time to cover up the white lineoleum, and this spot that happened in the middle of the kitchen...the week we moved in...that has been staring me in the face...everyday...for 5 years.
In my original Lipstick Kitchen post, I told you about this peel & stick vinyl flooring from Lowe's that looks like hardwood. It's by Novalis, and the color is Gunstock. One box = 30 sq. feet. Right now, it's 98 cents/sq. foot. I bought it on sale for 87 cents/sq. foot. And of course after we bought it, I saw it on sale for only 78 cents/sq. foot. It has only positive reviews on Lowes.com, and it got lots of rave reviews on the GardenWeb Forum. This is a temporary, lipstick option until we win the lottery.
I bought 9 boxes, but over-bought by almost 2 boxes. Like I said, one box = 30 sq. feet (or 30 4"x36" planks). I'll keep my extra boxes. If a plank gets damaged, we can still pull that one plank up and replace it.
