In keeping with our eco design model, and just for the sheer fun of it, we’ve decided that the kitchen floor will be made up from all the leftover pieces of Marmoleum we’ve saved so far.
The first part was the installation of a high quality sub-floor (similar to the bathrooms), consisting of maple plywood and a lot of staples.
Then we mocked up some layouts on the computer (complete with correct colors and textures), and settled on the one below.
Then using a panel saw we cut the pieces as square as possible and ended up with this!
We’re hoping to have it installed in the next couple of weeks.
The floor was finally installed this past week by a local company. We felt a professional would handle the complexity a little better, rather than installing it ourselves – plus they’ve got all the tools! He did a really nice job.
