I used similar tiles in a kitchen years ago. It's a commercial grade "VCT" Vinyl Composition Tile. The Good: affordable, very durable and amazing color choices. The Bad: They have to be waxed and stripped regularly. (yearly?)

Any ideas on choosing Formica or similar laminates? Among them, have you found a brand or a line that works well?

They all seem to be the same. Thoughtful design details and good craftsmanship will win the day.

I have one like it that was my grandmother's. It was a little worse for wear, but some new vinyl fabric and a little steel wool cleaned it right up. I even replaced the black stair tread. It looks like new. You could probably find one with enough "garage sale-ing" or thrift store shopping!

Try ebay listings by searching for: "vintage bar stool" - best of luck!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Erika Ward - Erika Ward Interiors added this to 11 Ways to Give Your Home Schoolhouse Charm
Vinyl compostion tiles (VCT), are the most common flooring materials used in schools. Here, they are laid on a diagonal in a checkered pattern. Throw in a vintage chair, like the one in the foreground, and you instantly create a retro schoolhouse vibe.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Kitchen Remodel Costs: 3 Budgets, 3 Kitchens
The Basic Kitchen RemodelThis kitchen remodel is proof that basic doesn’t mean boring. The colors, sense of fun and attention to detail all contribute to a kitchen that is a joy to use. A $20,000 to $30,000 kitchen remodel (done by professional designers and construction workers) typically has:1. The same structure as your current kitchen. By keeping the appliances and fixtures in the same locations and keeping the space intact, there’s little need to redo plumbing and electrical work.2. Simple lighting. Sure, all those recessed lights might be nice, but light fixtures like the ones shown here will illuminate the space efficiently and inexpensively (each recessed light will typically hold only a 60-watt bulb, whereas a decorative fixture can have 120, 180 or even more total watts). This is a no-brainer when the lighting works with the design, as it does here.

Re- the budget, go for simple lighting. Recessed lights look great, but pendent light fixtures like those shown here will illuminate the space efficiently and inexpensively (each recessed light will typically hold only a 60-watt bulb, whereas a decorative fixture can have 120, 180 or even more total watts).
