marmoleum click in our kitchen??

15 years ago


I'm fishing for flooring ideas for our nearly-complete kitchen remodel for a home built in 1953. We've installed soapstone countertops with a beadboard/wainscoting backsplash that extends around the kitchen. We had custom kitchen cabinet doors fabricated to resemble a 1950s cottage motif. As you can tell, the floors are appalling. Any thoughts or ideas for replacement? We are trying to retain the vintage/retro feel--keeping the vintage O'Keefe and Merritt stove, and not touching some of the cabinet accents--and my wife is insisting on ungaged, non-uniformed slate with muted blues and golds. I'm leaning toward the marmoleum click, since the linoleum flooring will more faithful to the period. But I'm not sure if a checkerboard pattern would be appealing, or if a solid finish would be better? Also, and not shown in the photos, the walls are painted a dark navy blue. Here are some photos of our kitchen remodel.

Thanks in advance!
