Many designers are using marmoleum in their home interiors because of its versatility and ease of installation. I’ve been looking around for different tips on how to do the same thing with some of my vinyl flooring in Halifax This gave me some great ideas. I’ve been to a couple of homes recently with vinyl flooring in Vancouver BC and I like the look of it a lot! LOL I just saw those tiles the other day and was considering them for my sisters new kitchen… I’m redoing her kitchen.
I actually like the vinyl we had put down when we built the house, so I was hoping to just keep that for a while till I figured out what I wanted to do with the floor. Sarah – I used Laticrete epoxy grout (which is flexible and comes in a TON of colors) with vinyl tile from Home Depot in my entryway (looong story about why that was the only option). The addition of glass fibre layers throughout the vinyl structure adds durability and toughness.
Anyhow, excellent job – I think it was actually fate calling you into that laundry room that day, because the new tiles are just perfect!

Carpeting is popular for basement flooring, accounting for 28% of basement flooring in the United States. One major advantage of carpeting is that it’s warmer than most flooring options.
