Recommendations for cheap temporary floor in period home?
I put this in the kitchens forum, but then realized that maybe home decorating is the place to ask for advice.
Long story short...we have to put a temporary kitchen in our home for now, but we're going to rip this kitchen out and add an addition with our dream kitchen, hopefully within a year.
So obviously we're doing this kitchen as cheaply as we can. Oak cabinets, laminate countertop (or Ikea butcherblock which I've read is very affordable)...but what to put on the floor?
The house was built in the early 1900s and we are restoring it as a period home. Even though this kitchen is just going to be temporary, I don't want it to look so ridiculous with the rest of our house (which is all the original hardwood).
The cheapest floor I can think of is vinyl. I was looking for a hex-tile-patterned vinyl or a B/W pinwheel-patterned vinyl, but haven't had any luck. I don't care for the fake stone or fake wood looks that seem to be popular, and solid vinyl/linoleum looks very modern and commercial to me. Does anyone have any recommendations as to what sort of vinyl I should use?
Thanks so much!
