Help with flooring
September 6, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Hi, have a small kitchen , dining room. Condo. Have outdated white tile, some cracked. Rest of condo, same white tile. Cannot match..
Blue cabinets. Yellow walls, red and gold dining chairs. No wood in home.
Tile is fine in rest of home. Can I change the two areas. ,about 125 sq ft, to another material, other than tile and have it look good.
Will need different color than white . Stymied.

Those are some bright kitchen furnishings. I like it!

I'd think you could get plain old linoleum tiles, laid diagonally, like in a 1950's kitchen. Or, squared like the broken tile now, you'd have to play with it. I probably wouldn't lay it over the broken tile, but would remove the tile in the kitchen. You'll need some sort of "transition" piece between the 2 floors to bridge them, but there are many at the home improvement stores.

Here are pictures of what I mean on the linoleum:

I'd probably go with a light yellow & white. That way, if the white is different from the tiles, the difference in the texture may make it look less "un-matchy".

with your style, a checkered tile pattern: black and white would look really great in the kitchen area. Porcelain tiles are best for durability
