I have an almost original 1930Âs kitchen complete with yellow and black tile counters, backsplash and toe kick. The backsplash tile is pale yellow with brown specs. It is on all walls of the kitchen Â 5Â high near the stove and 4Â high above (soon to be) lower cabinets in another corner. The cabinets, counters and backsplash are all original and in good shape so we are keeping them. We will be changing the hardware, probably to an antiques gold or bronze. We have updated the electrical and plumbing and are now ready to replace the floor.
The floor needs to be a sheet good so it will tie into the tile toe kicks. I donÂt want to remove the toe kicks or add trim in front of them. The floor samples in the pictures are Armstrong linoleum.
Do you have any suggestions for the floor? IÂm open to any type of sheet flooring, not just linoleum. DH likes the floor on the cover of Jane Powell's Bungalow Kitchens. I'm lukewarm on that one.
Here is a photo of the kitchen before we moved in.
